I really want to get an Epi Les Paul Custom in Arctic White. I can't really afford a new one, so I'm pretty much stuck with sifting through craigslist ads.

I found this one, does it sound like a good deal to you? Any concerns? I don't know that much about buying guitars, so any advice is great.

thats looks like a pretty good deal because you also get that other gear and $600 is cheaper than buying a new guitar which would be $700
Meh I definitely would not do this deal.

First off the Line 6 Spiders are some of the worst amps on the market.
And if its the small peavey amp it's probably a cheap one worth no more than $50-100 at best. It's not really clear in the ad.

Second the Epi LP Standards are actually better than the Customs im my honest opinion. The custom is the same as the standard just with more cheap plastic binding on it, making it heavier.

You could definitely get an Epiphone LP Standard on Craigslist for $250-300. Then spend your other $300 to get a pretty nice amp. You could get like a used valveking combo or something decent.

This is seriously a terrible deal.

On the used market that stuff is worth about $450 total at very best

EDIT:And to the dude who said this is an amazing deal, what kind of glue are you sniffing?

If you NEED the amp aswell then thats a very good deal, ^ Line 6 transistor amps aren't brilliant but there about average for what you can expect to get for this kind of money.

Anyway it would be a good deal without the amp so go for it.
Dude I see Epiphone LP Customs for between $300-400 on craigslist all the time. He could definitely save money on this.
here are some that I found in your area just by using the searchbar

Black Standard -$300 - http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/msg/1822601533.html
Cheerybust Standard - $300 - http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/msg/1816129042.html
Black Standard - $350 - http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/msg/1811185950.html
Epiphone SG Custom White w/ Gold - $300 - http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/msg/1773828195.html Thats a pretty good deal

But besides all that for $600 you could get a used Gibson les Paul Studio, or SG Special, you could probably get a Gibson and still have money for a cheap amp
limiting yourself to only epi lp customs is kinda cutting your options to one.

it's all preference but...
http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/msg/1817640809.html maybe 350...

Actually sorry i get confused about how many dollars go into a pounds so thinking about it is not that good a deal, cases are always handy though if you want to gig.
