like the title says, im looking for a good beginner electric guitar and amp

for the guitar, i am looking for a Les Paul styled guitar, not sure what kind to get though, epiphone is the main brand i was looking at, but i am definitely open to suggestions

and the amp, i would prefer a small combo for just practicing in my bedroom, definitely 15 watts at the most

i play stuff like Zeppelin, Three Days Grace, 3 Doors Down, Metallica and similar

willing to spend up to $600 USD, but i can go over a little bit

EDIT: and i am willing to go used as well
Guitars:

yeah they are terrible. and yeah they have that sweet aged look to them. all ESPs are great reliable guitars.
