Hey guys,

I used to own an Epiphone G-400. I had traded it in for an acoustic guitar and now, a three years later, am wanting to go back to electric. I loved the SG body my G-400 had, but was also envying the Les Paul body. I want to pick up a cheap guitar, no more than $300 CDN, just to play around with. Nothing serious, no gigs or performances. I want to get into some blues and classic rock - Wolfmother, Black Keys type stuff.

I was thinking about the Epi Les Paul Special II, since it's only $200 CDN and I've read a couple good reviews.

Anyone have any other suggestions or thoughts on the Les Paul Special II?
