I'm new to this community so first and foremost, hello to all.

I have made my research and I think I have made up my mind about all the things I'm going to buy, but first I would like to ask people who know more than me, because I am pretty much new to this.

So, guitar-wise:

I like led zeppelin, Queen, Pink Floyd, and that kind of music and I have always had much love for that model since I fell in love with led zeppelin. I have heard but and good stuff about epiphone, what do you think?

Ampli:

I'm still undecided if to go audio interface or go for an amplifier. I have heard that the tube ones are better than the transistor ones, I have eyed this one, But I don't know if it will ok for a Led Zeppelin-kinda-Sound. Also, It has only 1 watt. I have watched videos about it and it seems that is very good for treble sound but it lacks bass

Cables:

I found this made by Gibson but I don't know if they have a good price for the quality. Any suggestions?

Anything else that I should need? Thanks for reading.

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro is a good choice of guitar (The dodgier Epiphones are the ones with bolt-on necks; the Standard models are good), but I do think the trim on it (the binding and the maple veneer) do probably up the price against comparable models. If you want a Les Paul, though, it's probably the guitar to go for in the price range.

I've had no real experience with Blackstars so I can't really comment there

Gibson instrument cables are a tad costly if you're just starting out, personally I think Planet Waves Classic or Custom Series cables would be fine, but for a bit more (still less than the Gibson Cable even for longer cables) there's the Planet Waves American Stage Series that I've seen a lot of the people on this forum who actually perform recommending.

Thanks for your answer. I was almost decided for that epiphone but then I have started to read articles and forums that state that Vintage guitars are better than Epiphone... now I dont know what to think
