So...Les Paul, Tele, or my own hmmm
Why did you make two threads about this they're gonna get closed but anyway go for whatever you prefer, I'd choose a Telecaster style but it's personal preference.
Les Paul, no question
both are good
Epiphone Elitist Les Paul Custom, then with the money saved by not buying the name "Gibson" get a nice Tele.
I don't understand the question - 'your own?' Are we talking about guitars that you want to buy? - If yes, budget, musical style etc....
