i have an epiphone les paul with a skull on it and i feel its too dark for me so i'm gonna try to sell that to guitarcenter and buy a strat with that money and the money i take out of the bank, so my questions are
1. How much money do u think i can get for the lp
2. what's the best strat i can get for $300-$500
3. What color should i get it in? I was thinking white or a sunburst

1. Depends on what condition its in, what you bought it for etc.

2. MIM standard maybe?

3. Thats up to you really.

I would spend a bit of time playing a few strats and make sure they suit your needs, get a feel for wich ones you like best.

thanks for the input everyone i think i'll go with a suburst but i havent decided either rosewood or maple i'll have to look at them at the store
i looked at the lp and its a special II so i went to epiphone.com to check and it didnt have the type of paint i have so maybe it was limited edition or something
anyway do those strats that the people already mentioned have a whammy bar cause i've never used one and always wanted one

yeh but with a maple fretboard you can only get a 2 tone sunburst which imo sucks pretty much

Nope.
My Mexi Strat is 3 colour sunburst with maple neck, so are all Mexi Strats like that.

And I'd suggest you sell the LP privately, and get more money for it.

And try a load of Mexi Strats out and see which one plays/feels best to you.

And decide the colour for yourself.

if u need a humbucker make sure u get one.

if not then check out a Fat strat too.
