well, both the epiphone and esp's would be a great choice, from the sound i think you're trying to get, i think a dean wouldn't be a good match at all. both of them are great lead guitars, but if you're going to be a rhythm guitarist, i would take the epiphone.. with the epiphone you'll get awesome tones, and with the esp you'll have more speed.

or i could put it this way...
esp = metal, fast, aggressive
epiphone = solid tones, rock n roll, and smooth. you should try both out and see what you prefer

The F-50 is good the other 2 are pretty crappy though.
If you live in the states I suggest looking at rondomusic.com. For the price of that hunk of junk Epi 100 you could get a Agile Al-2000 which is much better. If you want a super strat then deffinately look at the Douglas Spad and the Spad Pro. The Spad has a set neck and basswood body with 24 frets and the spad pro has a mahogany body with EMG select pickups. You cant god wrong with any of these guitars but I highly suggest the Agile or the Spad Pro.

I like the touch of pretty much every LTD I've ever played... Haven't tested that one out, but it probably feels like cheap LTD's do.

This is true, I played an ESP once and my acceleration and top speed increased loads. I could got from 200bpm to 600bpm in 3.4 secs.
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

+1
Playing an esp gives you +3 boost to your speed. But if it's a LTD it has a -1 to your coolness.

and lol @ newcastle loss to west brom But they're doing pretty well. Alot better than I expected.

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?

I see the Squier Classic Vibe guitars got ranked as good budget electrics on the front page ranking thing. Would any of them be good for what TS wants?

So, should I go with the epiphone?

No that epiphone is junk, if you get that you might as well get a special ll. If your going to get a LP either get a AL-2000 or an Xavier. You could also look around for used epiphones standard or studio on craigslist
#11
I own a LP 100 and it's great. I play similar stuff as well as all kinds of metal (Megadeth, Black Sabbath, Sabaton) and even blues. The Epi LP 100 does the trick quite well, it's a versatile axe.

Of course, I'd suggest going to your local music store and trying all of them.
To Mr. Rikard Sundén,

Please come back - Sabaton needs you!

I'm not interested in the LP, im interested in the best one of those 3
So... should I go with the vendetta then?

If you have to go with one of those three then get the F-50
#15
ESP and Epiphone would be the best.
Make sure you go and test that which one is best for your hands as well

Not much, there both junk. One is a flat top and the other is a carved top but thats about it. But if you could get a G-400 that would be a much better way to go.

It seems im going for the G-400. It looks awesome and from the reviews, it's a pretty good one for the price. You guys got to know that I'm not going to buy a Gibson as a starter, that would be a mess with all that money, and I'm a student, so I dont have that much money.

But the G-400 it is

Cool. You have to post pics of it when you get it. Its the unwritten rule of UG.

We werent expecting you to get a gibson but the LP100 and Special 2 are not very good compared to what other things you could get for the price.

I wouldn't get any of those guitars you've originally listed. For first guitars, they'll get the job done but you won't be bowled over by them.

If you're looking for a quality guitar that'll last a long time, none of those guitars wil do it. The LP100 is utter crap. Its basically a Special II with a second volume and tone. That's it. Horrible guitars. I would avoid Epiphone unless you can go used and get at least a LP Standard. Epi Standards are solid guitars. Deans that aren't USA made are horrible. I wouldn't be seen dead with one. The LTD isn't too bad though.

Better to either save moar or go used. A G-400 would be a decent choice.

Really? Ive used a couple of F-50's and some F-10's and both were great guitars. I wish I could have bought the F-10 it was only $80 at a pawn shop and played much nicer than the $300 Art100 I had at the time. And the F-50 I played at a local music shop played better than the RG350 it was next too. It was almost as good as the Godin they had though that godin had an advantage *EMG and Mahogany body*

Keep the input guys, what would YOU guys suggest for that budget I have?
