Hello everyone
I want to buy a new guitar...
I have now a cort g series and i want something better.
My guitar amps are a Roland cube 40xl and a Line 6 Pod studio Ux1.
I Want to play rock, blues, pop.
I like to play songs from the following bands: Van Halen, Guns n Roses, Eric Johnson, Kane.
I like sounds with a little bit distortion but i like clean sounds too
I was thinking to buy a Lp or a Strat
Which one fits best to my style of playing.
my budget is from 300 till 450.
And which brands have good guitars in mine price class

I had seen the following guitars which i liked.

Les Paul
Epiphone Les Paul Custom
Epiphone Les Paul studio

The strat will be better IMO.
Only 1/4 of the artists you listed use Les Pauls.

Also, what currency of money?

I'm a student. I've got no time or space for an amp!

I would say Strat.

And this ^, it kinda matters if you're asking for suggestions
All you need is yo' fingers and the strings

Strat unless your into weight lifting. Ever see a Lp with Claptons fingers wrapped around it.

You like to play Kane... You must be Dutch then!
Nou in dat geval, als je een wat meer "duistere" sound wil zeker voor de LP gaan, Strat geeft een wat helderder geluid, Epiphone Les Paul Custom is het zeker waard!
En als je toch geen nederlander bent...
Well, iff that's the case, go for the LP if you want a more dark sounding guitar, Strats tend to be a bit briter. Epiphone LesPaul Custom is definitly worth it!

An HSS Strat would cover pretty much everything there.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

he basically used a paf in a alder or basswood body iirc. that's not hard to accomplish on a HSS strat.

an HSS strat has a bucker in the bridge.

I like the Lp because they have a nice sound. But i like the Strat because they play so nice and they sound good too.
I was thinking of buying a strat and put a humbucker in so i can still play Van halen types of sounds. or could i just do this with my amp
I would prefer not to because that will cost also more money and i have to let it do by a guitar shop.
