Okay, heres the deal. I have been playing an Epiphone SG Special for about two years. My birthday is coming up in two months and my parents say I am good enough to get a nicee guitar. Would an Epiphone Les Paul Standard be a good step forward? Or would you guys recomend something else in that price range?

Get the Classic, its only $500 and has an upgraded neck, a badass finish and a pickup upgrade. I love mine. And if you want, I can post a picture of it.

uhh buddy... Standard > classic, classic does not have better pick ups ( well it depends on what he plays, but typically not.) and ive never heard anything about this here "neck upgrade"
No I don't want to play your guitar... I might light it on fire.

the Epiphone les paul standard plain top is better, but what's your price range?

OK.... i fail to see how if a guitar has a plain top instead of a flame or quilted one it would sound better. it would look less badass, yes, but soun d better: no

^Don't go spewing dumbassity, now, it doesn't suit you.

The plain-top is made out of pure mahogny, while the standard is made out of mahogny AND alder. Unless you want a much brighter sound (Sounds less like a real les paul), plain-top is the way to go. The reason for why its cheaper, is of course, its looks. If you want a good-sounding guitar at a low price, though, get the plain-top



Of course, its all about what you like, but if you're getting a standard in the first place, you're better off with the plain-top
