I would have suggested Agiles, but I haven't tried one, so I'm not really in a position to recommend them. I haven't heard a single bad comment about them though. That in itself tells you they're great for the money.

It's a guitar brand. They make "knockoff" versions of a lot of big name guitars. Their Les Pauls are a favorite on this board. Especially the high-end ones (that are still only around $400.)

ok. thanks. i looked at some reviews of the Epiphone LP Standards and it had really good reviews but it said you need a good set up or there is fret buzz..
wat will a good set up do? i have a Vox AD 30 VT..

any guitar can buzz. u just raise the strings a little.
epi's dont buzz more than others. u just need to try any guitar before u buy.

Search for the Fender Standard Stratocaster. MiM stands for Made in Mexico. They're only a little over $300, yet some can be as good as the American Stratocaster which goes for $800+. The only thing is that you have to try them first. Some are duds, some are absolutely awesome.

The same goes for the Fender Telecaster. Just search for Fender standard Telecaster on Musician's friend. They're a little more than Stratocasters, but they're great if you like them.

EDIT: For the Washburn WI64 go to www.music123.com Musician's friend doesn't carry them, but music123 does. Along with lots of other Washburns.

Also, to get a guitar set up is to take it to a guitar store and have it completely checked-intonation, string change, cleaning, that kind of stuff. I don't know what it would cost, as the guitars I've bought have already been fully set up.

Neither would I. Especially when mayn of the mention guitars are common in shops-nearly all of them will be set up already.
