Tokai LPs from the 80s regularily fetch $1000 and up on ebay. They were sued by Gibson b/c theyre just as good for half the price. These are Korean made which is better quality than Chinese made Epiphones, the body is all mahogany vs. the Epi alder/mahogany sandwich and its a real LP shape which the Agile is far from, it even has a Gibson shaped headstock which the Epi doesnt. They arent allowed by law to be sold in USA in a deal with Gibson which is why Americans have to buy them from Canada. For $500 you cant buy a better paul period.
An ebony Epiphone Les Paul Standard is usually $380. If you get it, however, change the pickups! I tried it out at a store and the sound wasn't what I thought it would be.
You can easily get a genuine Gibson Les Paul Special for 400ish on ebay, you can also get a studio for about 700ish. The ticket is being patient, and looking for mislisted guitars.
