I have a POS squier strat now, so anything in this price range is open, Ive never had any experience with Epiphones or pretty much any other guitar besides ESP cause my friend has one. So any suggestions are good thx

I have an ESP EC-50 and it's a really good guitar for the money so if I were you I go to a music store that carries both of them and play them both so than you can see which one you like more

Definetly keep saving. You're half way to a good quality guitar.

going from a $100 Squier strat to a $200 ESP isn't gonna do much... except maybe the fact that they are humbuckers... you't still be stuck with a moderately crappy guitar... at least thats my opinion
#6
Thanks for the opinions the only thing is I dont ever get money, I dont have a job, the only reason i have this money is cause it was my birthday, I really dont wanna wait another year lol, my squier is all beat up and cant even stay in tune so i wanted to get something a little better.

I agree, save some more... You'll be much happier with a $400-500 guitar.
As for Epiphone, I've got a Studio LP and its great. Well built and very playable.
Looks and sounds just like a $1000 Gibson

The Viper isnt very good. Keep saving

i personally would rather go with the squier than one of those, especially because ive never heard of the brand! i personally would save for an epiphone, because i love them! they are owned by gibson and have most of the same models except cheaper and usually lighter. some can be as cheap as 250! keep saving

upgrade squier? i had a squier that i got for a birthday present and i decked it out. Its sounds beautiful now, i put a seymour jb jr in the bridge, and some seymour singles coils in the middle and neck, painted competition stripes on it, got new pots, new strings, and its wonderful, its my second best sounding guitar only beat out by my gibson sg.
#16
^you dont understand, my squier is beat to hell, i would never put any money into it

ahh i had a squire strat for my beginning guitar, then saved up for ages and bought an epi lp classic plus. I swear if it didnt have the logo on the headstock it'd be a gibson. SOunds magical. Dunno if i got lucky, but i reckon epi's are the way to go.
