Hello,
What is the best Les Paul type guitar for under 1800$?
I play everything from blues to heavy metal.

An ESP Eclipse would probably be a pretty good choice, that's all I have to recommend (played one for a few today, it was pretty sweet).

This is maybe the worst comparison in the history of comparisons.

Definitely look into an Eclipse. They are super versatile guitars.
Well if that just don't put the pun back in capital punishment

^ I've heard really positive things about them - yet to try myself as I haven't been into a stockist or someone with stock...

The Eclipse is a good suggestion, since you want metal as well as blues.
It's an opinion. It's subjective. And I'm right, anyway.

if you are more worried about metal, go eclipse, more about rock/ blues than Gibby. however the gibby will do better at metal than the horizon will at blues IMO. i own 6 gibsons and owned a horizon a while back. they are very different guitar, and you really sshould just get the one that feels better in your hands.

Gibsons do metal pretty well, and you can get a really nice one in that budget. I'd suggest going to a shop and playing every Gibson in your budget. And also the Eclipse. The ESP Eclipse has a thinner neck and many think they're easier to play because it doesn't feel like you're holding a baseball bat.

I prefer the Gibson slim taper necks over the Eclipse neck, however.

I'd get the eclipse if I were you. or maybe you wanna go for Gibsons? Edwards/Greco Les Pauls perhaps?
