I am planning on getting a guitar that it doesn't mean much if I mess something up and that I can mess around with hardware and get hands on before I build my own, so the hardware on it won't be that good, Sub-Par. I am looking for a classic rock sound. A Lynyrd Skynyrd or Tom Petty or a Journey Sound. The Guitar I am getting is a Gibson Les Paul Knock Off Info right off the site(if needed):
