Epi/Algile LP and a DSL40c



Just that amp on it's own is over budget in the USA, I agree on the Epi LP though.

Get an Epi LP Standard and a Vypyr/Vox AD30VT/Whatever decent modelling amp with a few effects and that.

^ the G400 is a solid guitar, I have had one for 7 years and not one issue except I swapped the bridge HB. other than that the guitar is stock.

+1

Only thing with mine (had it for about 2 and a half years I think? only sold it to get my Telecaster) that ever gave me any trouble was the pickup switch, but that was just from dust; really solid guitar for the money.

Another vote for the Agile AL-2500. Easily the best bang for buck anywhere near that price range at $259, plus or minus.

But I'm a fan of getting the best guitar you can first, and then, as you continue to get better on the guitar itself, progressing up the scale in amp as you need. Thus, if it were ME, I'd spend the money on the best guitar I could afford and get an amp that would work just well enough that I could hear it.

I won't recommend an amp.

The Epiphone G400 is worth the fuss. While I love my Vypyr, it doesn't lend as well towards the bands mentioned. Vox might be worth a shot, but it might be good to test out a few to see what fits best based on some of the suggestions.
Guitar/Bass:
Schecter: Damien 6/Stilletto Extreme 5, Squier: Bullet HSS*, Washburn RX10*/WG-587, Agile Septor 727

Amps/FX
Peavey: Vypyr 30/Max 112 (200W), ISP: Decimator

I agree with the sentiment that you want to get the best guitar you can find within budget and reason at first, when you are learning you want to be fighting the instrument as little as possible and if the guitar is nice you will want to play it more and thus, get better faster.

Luckily with $700 you can get a nice enough guitar and a pretty decent practice amp.

Go to guitar fetish. They have amazing choices for les pauls. For under 300. That leaves you 400 for an amp and you have many options there. Dont get him a tube amp to be honest might piss him off even tho thats the thing they were using in that era.

But if you do want tube. Bugera makes great cheap options. I have a v5 and its amazing.

But for solid state. Cant go wrong with a peavey Vypyr VIP series.
