I'm new to UG and was wondering what is the best guitar out there for the price. I'm looking for something with the style of a gibson les paul like carlos santana's...but what are good brands because i can't afford a $2,000 guitar.

Thank you
Santana uses a Paul Reed Smith guitar and they are far from being cheap. Really depnds on your style music, tone your looking for, and about a dozen more things. Once you know this then picking a guitar should be easy.

this is not the forum for this thread, try electric guitar instead.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.
