I've been playing guitar for a while now, and I'm looking to get a second guitar. I've got a black squier strat right now, and I'm tired of having the same exact guitar as every other noob out there. I've been looking at a standard Gibson Les Paul jr., and it looks like everything i want. The $840ish price is something i can pay cuz i've got about 900 bucks saved up for a new guitar. I've played it a bunch at GC and Sam Ash, and i like the sound and the feel. I love the simplicity and it looks just sexy. Plus, it fits great into the music I play (Punk Rock and Classic Rock). Before i buy it, i just want to make sure there are no huge downsides before i go ahead and buy it.

Well not having a neck pickup is a down side if you want one. But if you like the look, sound, and feel, you should get it.

with your budget, you can get a tribute 60s, which will give you 2 p90s and trapezoid inlays. Worth every penny =)
