I was hoping to purchase a new guitar (my last one just took a fall down some stairs) It was just a starter anyway. I was hoping on you opinions on either, the EPI Les Paul Goth, or the Jackson JS30RR Rhoads. Both are at the top of my price range i cant go anyhigher than about 300 USD. Which would you knowlegable guys wanna recommend and why? Oh i already have a new amp not a starter and i play mostly distorted stuff. COB, metallica, Godsmack, ect. Thanks in advace guys/girls of UG.

probably the Jackson, low end Epi's are probably the lowest you can go, but you are going to get a starter guitar for $300, no matter what. Save up more.

Epi, the JS series by Jackson aren't that great. At least the Epi is mahogany, change the pickups and it'll be good.

I dont know much about low end jacksons, but ill guess they wont be too great.

Mid - High end Jacksons own tho, theyre like my favorite guitars.

I got a JS30 (a Kelly though), and I think it's awesome. I play it through a Randal or Pavey amp, and it sound awesome. The Les Paul, not so much so in my opinion.

I have had very few experiences with high end-instrument though, and besides from having a Stratocaster at my disposal I am much more familiar in low-end circels.

Do a search for Jackson on Ebay. You can pick up something better than either the EPI or the JS if you have some patience and just look for them.

Frankly, $300 isn't much of an upgrade from "starter level" guitars.

sure it is

my first guitar was 100 CND
my second was 600 CND

which is some what equivalant to what hes paying, altough prices do drop ...
