hey all,

im not really looking looking for a new guitar just yet, but i might be soon, so i figured id start looking now. here is what i would need:

les paul shape is preferred, but not limited to (japanese "law suit" guitars are fine)
neck binding is also preferred
fixed bridge
emg active pickups (stock or aftermarket, but aftermarket must be included in final price)
$500-600 (used is fine)

iv looked mostly at esp/ltd, but i just cant get over how much i dislike the inlays and the pearl binding on the higher models. epiphone is really hit or miss. japanese law suit les pauls will be kinda pricey once emg's are thrown into the budget (same for a PRS SE). so basically i just need some more suggestions, somewhere i wouldnt think to look. like i said, id prefer a les paul style, but im open to anything (cept sg's, v's, and strats).

thanks!

^Requisite +1 to rondo. I had the AL-3000. Great guitar for the money.

I hate to say it but I've kind of become an Agile/Rondomusic spokesperson here, but they deserve more attention than they get

They're good guitars. I like the Rootbeer finish, it's so deep.

again, not really big on those inlays, but iv played them and they are really nice. but if im getting an epi, id get a cheap used custom and throw in emgs myself (the new solderless ones ). i love how the customs look. thanks though.
