I'm about to start getting a lot more use out of my guitar, and I wanted to try and get one that's easier to transport than my first guitar, a rather bulky electric hollowbody. I think it's a little less than 10 lbs. It was sort of a gift, and now that I can justify getting a new one of my choice I want to put some thought into it. All my favorite guitarists use LPs, but they're even heavier and a really good one is out of my price range (I'm looking for $400 or preferably lower. And lefty guitars are usually a little more expensive than the regular ones). I know a lot of the LP's tone has to do with the heavy wood so I'm not sure it's possible but does anyone know of a lightweight guitar that has the same sort of tone? Or failing that, just a cheap light guitar that can take a beating? (Edit: crossed the ibanez off my list, crappy wood). Thanks a lot.

Well if you want to get a nice Les Paul for a good price you should check out Agiles.
