Currently I have a shitty beginner strat style guitar, it sucks and the frets buzz . I was looking around classifieds here and found a pretty nice looking LP clone that is brandless for a pretty low price. Would it be a bad purchase?

I'm not sure, I do know it was bought from a local guitar store(that is usually pretty high quality) and they were trying to introduce brandless entry level guitars that still sounded great.
I can't play much of anything really yet so I'm not sure how I would test it out, my current guitar is just pissing me off and making it hard to learn.

Only buy it if you can try it out first. Otherwise, it may end up being the same as your strat - low quality beginner gear.

Have you had your strat properly set up? That may fix the fret buzz.

I had a buddy who's played guitar for years string it and adjust the action, even with adjusting low E buzzes a lot.
It would be bought locally so I would be able to make sure it doesn't buzz etc, but depending if they have an amp I wouldn't be able to plug it in.

Seems you might just be going from a shitty beginner strat style guitar to a shitty beginner LP style guitar, which you'll probably regret in a few months time.

I really love the LP style of guitar, but don't really have enough money to blow on a better one. How would I be able to tell if it was junk?

I'd be willing to bet it is a piece of crap. I'm not saying this is a fact, but most likely it is.

well maybe have a friend that knows how to play test it out if possible? Also whats your price range you'd be willing to spend on that guitar, we may be able to point you in the right direction without deviating from your budget.

When music stores sell a generic item that they like they get their name added on for a reason. Anyone who sells a product with no a brand is doing it because they expect customers to be disappointed.

It's not but those pictures give me a very Samick single cut vibe.

recently I turned it into an Esquire that impregnates unsuspecting people with my children whenever I play it.

The only good thing about my MG30 was I was able to have it in my room for 5 years solely as a place to hide cigarettes and condoms.

Kinda looks like an SX to me, at least the body shape. If you want a decent Les Paul, most people will advise Agile if you are in the US...might be worth a look. Also, i would avoid the Special II.

If I were you, I'd just get somebody to do a proper set-up on your current guitar. Buying a new one will not improve your playing.
