I'm aboot to a used guitar, and can't decide between the two, a LP or RR3, both for the exact same price, which do you think?

Wow, that was pretty quick, anyways, my favourite guitarist is Randy Rhoads, but play something closer to Brian Tatler of Diamond Head and that kind of stuff

well if you're getting them for the same price and they'rein the same condition i would probably just take the rr3 since it's a more expensive guitar generally and you could sell it. however they're very different guitars stylistically and sound wise so it's kinda like comparing apples and oranges.

they really arent comparable guitars... try letting us know what you play, who you listen to, what sort of amp you have

Yeah state the type of music you play. If you say classic rock then go with the Epi, that is if you like it.

Try them both out before you buy if you can't decide.

If your a guy who likes fast solos, the RR3 would be a better choice.

You can play classic rock perfectly fine on a RR3.

And you can play thrash and shred perfectly fine on an Epiphone Les Paul.

Would you like a mango or a watermelon?

Two totally difference beasts, but overall the Jackson is way better.

I'd say the LP but this is really difficult. Myself, I love LPs and it suits MY musical preference. Whichever will work best for what YOU do then go for it. Good luck bro!
Put this in your signature if you've ever saved a child.


Yea thats what i thought.

1st or 2nd+ guitar? If first, I'd suggest the LP so you can play in different tunings easier. If not, get the RR3. Both guitars are versatile but the RR3 is just better value.

thats where i stand. they are not comparable in any way.

one thing to think about is that v's are kinda a pain to play sitting down until you get used to them. i cant play a rhodes v sitting down, it bugs me. just something to think about.

I don't agree. Unless you have huge hands and can deal with the horrible upper fret access of the LP, shred and thrash is more difficult on a LP. And IF you have huge hands, then the short scale will get in your way.
