Currently looking at this guitar - https://new.andertons.co.uk/p/ENTPMENH1/solid-body-electric-guitars/epiphone-les-paul-tribute-plus-in-midnight-ebony
As it has the classic 57 humbuckers but i'm looking at other options that would be around the same price or even better if cheaper

-Big fan of les paul style guitars
-Must be humbuckers (playing rock)
-Cool if there was coil tapping
-If not a les paul body, would be nice if it had tremolo (maybe even a floyd rose)

Many Thanks.

The PRS SE range will sit around that price point. They're solid guitars, if at all possible, get to a store and try one.

Are you really sold on having a trem? If not you have a bit of options.

If you really like a Les Paul and Epiphone tickles your fancy you can find a used one for a decent price and having coil taps done would be cheap.

If you want to spend a bit more the Epiphone Tribute les pauls are probably the best you can get without getting an MIJ.


If trem is needed maybe look into agile if you want an LP shape? They make a few different models and are comparable in quality to Epiphones (if not better)

This is the only other one (aside from the PRS SE singlecut that's around that price point that was mentioned above) I'd recommend that fits exactly all of your criteria (LP shape, dual humbuckers, coil tap) -

They don't seem to have ESP/LTD at Anderton's, but the LTD line's Eclipse series is another solid choice for your tastes, aside from the pickups, which are active, but can be swapped out.

TBH, since he's linked from the Anderton's site, he's probably in the UK, which means shipping will eat up a fair portion of his budget for an Agile, and probably wipe out any potential saving.
