I'm not too experienced with Epiphone and I don't know which models are worth getting, so can someone check out this guitar and see if it's any good as a backup guitar?

I've been DYING for a single cutaway body guitar, and the Agile I bought a few months ago I really wasn't happy with (should have gotten a different model), so i'm looking into some other brands, and I've heard some decent things about Epiphone.

its not a bad guitar, its not particularly good either, its cheap so you get what you pay for. My friend had one as his first guitar and it sounded alright but pretty weak as you'd expect, seemed pretty reliable though, never gave him any problems during 5 or so years of bedroom and band practice playing

I've played them in the store before. They honestly never really impressed me. I want to like them because the price is right, they're lightweight, and they look decent. But they felt VERY cheap to me when I played them.

If that's your price range and you like the single-cutaway look, I'd go for something like an Ibanez ART100 or an ESP LTD EC-100. I think you'd find a much better bang for your buck with either of those. They cost about the same as the LP-100 but they don't feel as cheap (to me anyway).

You're in the "starter guitar" price range with that model. For $399 you can get a new Epi Standard.
Moving on.....

It is a beginner guitar, the cheapest Epi I would buy is the Vintage G-400 it's $299. The cheaper lines of Epi are pretty bad, but as you go up there are some real good finds.

It's not bad, but trust me...if you have an Agile, the Agile is probably much better.

The guitar I REALLY want is completely out of my price range at this point

For the price of that Ultra you could get a used Epi Elitist that would blow it out of the water.

Don't bother. Bolt on LP's are always a no go.
