do you think a Epiphone Les Paul Standard would suite my playing style ? I play music from metallica, Jimi-hendrix, black sabbath, chuck berry, ect. If it wouldn't suite my style, then what guitar under 800$ would?
Thanks for the help

i think that would cover it pretty well. if it doesnt cover it exactly you can always change the pickups to better suit your tone. i used to own an epi les paul and i played all of those bands and it suited me pretty well

i guess. there is probably a better guitar out there for $800 bucks, but it's your choice

maybe if you put some higher out put pickups in it should make it suit the styles more you can use any guitar for any style look at wes borland he uses a semi accoustic yamaha for playing with limp bizkit

Everybody thinks a Les Paul fits their style. Sometimes I have to remind people that there are other guitars out there.

Don't always jump on guitars that millions of other people use. Go to a guitar shop and try a bunch of them out.

It was the only task I would undertake...

It will do those well, put a higher output in the bridge and it will suit those better.

what?

In anycase. Yes, TS, an Epiphone Les Paul would suit you playing all of those guitarists. And I say this for this reason: the fact that you're in here asking us whether or not a guitar will suit your playing because you like certain artists means that just about any guitar would suit you at this point. Go and try the Epi Paul out. I got one me'self and I absolutely love it. It's a great guitar that with a proper setup, redoing of the electronics and new pickups is a GREAT guitar, but that's the same case as most other guitars.

What amp that works well with both metal and rock would you guys sugest under 200$? My mom bought me a crappy sx guitar and amp for christmas... I've been playing guitar for half a year, but I love it a lot. I play about 3 hours a day and I'm just waiting for my current guitar to fall apart so she'll let me buy a new one. (even though it is my money) It won't be long now though, it sounds like the nuts are going to rip out of the wood because of the constant cracking the wood makes
