The Epiphone Elitist Les Paul Standard is only about $900 in the left hand version...I'll find you a link and edit.

EDIT: It's $950...You probably won't find a better guitar for that price.

I bought the Schecter Omen 6, which is only $300...and its an excellent guitar for the price...so i would highly recommend the Schecter..but Epiphone is excllent as well...maybe you should go to a store and test them first....what I like you may not and vice versa...
People think im insane because i am frowning all the time...


....And then one day you find, ten years have got behind you, no one told you when to run...you missed the starting gun......

Schecter is WELL worth every penny. IMHO, They are better than Les Pauls for heavy rock, and even blues (with the right pickups of course)

The same could be said for LP's. With the right pickups they can do anything as well. But for $900 he shouldn't have to f*ck around with a pickup change. I believe the Epi's pups are the same as burstbuckers. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think they're the same, just with a different name. (Damnit. I unintentionally rhymed...)

Schecter hands down, they're great guitars and if anyone one tells you otherwise punch them in the throat

And i do have both epi and schecter, my epi V's nice but its far surpased by my schecter in playability, though they both sound identical

I have the right handed version of that schecter. It is my third guitar and it is such a great guitar the set neck is unnoticable and it plays like a dream. And those pickups sound like a dream. so definetly schecter.

That's a pretty bold statement. Epiphone Elitist Les Paul are some mean guitars. They will give alot of Gibson's a serious run for their money.

Most Schecter's (blackjacks ) I have played are great guitars, but I just feel they are missing substance and feel. I currently own the S-1.

Either way you go, you will get a superb guitar...but I would personally go with the Elitist.

schecter c1 +, 24 frets, mahogany body, good looking =) and decent pickups at a very very good price... etilist 800 + the same ****.....only hollowbody...
#23
^The Elitist Les Paul Standard is what he would be looking at. It's not hollowbody.

Like others have said, either way you go, you'll get a great guitar. Personally, I just prefer Les Pauls to the Schecters, and that Epi Elitist LP Standard is a steal for that price in the left handed version. Plus, I'm pretty sure that the ebony Elitist LP Standards are discontinued.

do i need to change the pickup of the guitars to have a better sound??
or is fine like that on both?
#27
hmmmmmm....I have heard a lot of good things about both. But if you are sure you are not considering the Elitist Les Paul, then get a Schecter. And about the pickups......most stock pickups aren't very good, but you don'thave to, no one says you have to, just whether you like the sound or not....plus schecters aren't as common looking as Les Pauls, if that makes any difference.

hope this helps

If you have $900, go for the Elitist Les Paul. There's no reason to get the regular Epi LP Standard if you have money for something so much better. If you really don't want the Elitist, go for the schecter. With the regular Epi LP Standard you'll be lookignto upgrade again within a year. If you're getting a new guitar, just go for one that will last you. Upgrading over and over until you reach that point will cost you more.
