have you tried any LPs? they can be a bit bulky/heavy if you're not used to them. a lot of players don't care (or are willing to put up with it), so I'm not saying to discount them completely or anything like that (they're classics for a reason), but just if you haven't tried them i'd try one first before buying one.

i'm guessing you can get an epi sg400 for that kind of money, which is probably worth considering. or a vintage. (haven't tried either, i should point out, just the epi LPs).

No i havent tried an LP before but i love the guitar to be honest, sick of looking at strats

no worries, it's just worth being aware of. As i said, plenty of guitar players don't care (or even if they do, are willing to put up with it), just it's worth bearing in mind if you have a bad back or are a wuss like me (and even saying that I have an edwards LP, so yeah ).

Go into the music store and be a pain and try out a few guitars to see what feels right to you. Then go into another music store and do the same, you will then find the type of guitars you feel is right for you.

I live in the middle of nowhere The only music store close to me has only 1 electric guitar, and its a death metal looking thing and at 2,500 its a little out of my price range

Epi LesPauls are around 3,3 - 3,6 kg - Strats are not lighter in weight, IMO

Well, the LP-100 is only 25 Euro cheaper than the above mentioned Studio Deluxe
though it has a bolt-on neck and the cheaper pickups
The Studio Deluxe is infact a Standard without binding - the way better deal than the LP-100

If you live in the middle of nowhere buying online with a '3 year warranty' and a '30-day money-back guarantee' can be a good deal

it depends on the specific guitar, really. i've tried heavier strats and lighter ones. but generally, yeah i'd say they're a fair bit heavier than strats. at least that's the way they feel to me.

i haven't tried the lp100 but i think it has the rep of being a beginner guitar. you can do better with your budget, in other words.

More info is needed.

What type of music do you want to play?
Are you going to want to do gigs with that guitar or just at home?
Do you want it to be FR?
24 frets?
EMG, SD pickups?

I play very small school gigs as backup to friends anything from Queen to GNR to Bring me to the Horizon
No FR is not needed
22 frets seems to be enough

Aren't the taxes in ireland kinda crazy? Just figure that in, everyone that's throwing down these $300 guitars.
#16
don't think they're any crazier than anywhere else in europe, though i could be wrong.

regardless if he buys from thomann or somewhere like that (anywhere within the EU) there should be no additional taxes to pay.
