I've been looking at buying a new guitar at roughly £400, I found a few ones that I like but I don't know if they're any good because I've only seen them online and never actually played one...
Could someone let me know whether or not I should get an;

Epiphone les paul,
Burny Les Paul RLC-55
Aria PE Royale
Cort CR Series

I am after a Les Paul shape but don't have the money for a Gibson... If you know of any others that are within my price range please let me know

take a look at the v100 series by vintage aswell, considered to be far superior les paul copies than epiphones
