or try any epiphone les paul for good quality on a budget

both are good, i prefer les paul;s for their wide tonal variations you can achieve (if you have a good amp)

Epiphone Les Paul Standard. They dropped the price down to $379 (At Guitar Center, at least). I've had mine for nearly a year, and it has yet to let me down. Some of the Epiphones are comparable to the Gibsons, and quite honestly, i think you can get just as good a guitar with Epiphone as you can with Gibson for a fifth of the price.

Schecters are also a very good choice. They sound unbelievable through distortion, so maybe you should give those a try.

try a Shcecter c-1....looks awesome and from what i've heard a quite a bit versatile. i think they're like 600 dollars though.

i agree with you all, get the epiphone les paul (custom or standard unless you can afford the ultra or signature versions).

Epiphone Les Paul. Should fit your style.
When I heard smoking would kill me, I bought shares in Dunhill and Marlboro - Thomas Geraghty

If we don't change it, nothing will fucking change.

Yeah, Im getting a new guitar soon also, man.
He likes to play classic rock and well im in the same situation as the starter of this thread. But I like to play alot of Tool stuff. Does an Epiphone play smooth and sound good?

My friend/bandmate has an epiphone les paul, and he loves it. Me, I'm not too keen.. I'm more of a strat person. But epiphones are very good quality, generally, and tend to have good tone. They definitely suit a harder rock sound quite well, so they seem to be what you are looking for.

DONT get the epiphone standard or custom unless you've tried one at a shop that you absolutely adore. If you're buying an epiphone les paul in the first play, i'd reccomend the epiphone les paul standard plain-top.

The reason for this, is because the regular standard and the custom models both have a slab of alder inside of them, and this greatly reduces the great tone that les pauls are known for. The plain-top doesn't have this slab of alder, its pure mahogny. Also, there's different pickups. These can be changed though, the body wood can't.

I'm looking to get a new guitar. Basically what i want is a guitar that can handle drop tunings and heavier gauge strings and still sound terrific, tremolo or locking nuts arent that crucial to me and i usually prefer strat bodies over any other and i have a budget of something like £400 or $700 and i usually play metal above everything else but it varies a lot. Friends have told me about the ibanez s520ex and sz 520 qm models which i actually might buy but i was just wondering if anyone can suggest any guitar better then those.
