i like to play indie rock, punk, expirimental, and a little bit of post hardcore heavier stuff. just a little.

epiphone g 400
epiphone casino
or the
fender telecaster standard
but im open to anything.

The les Paul would do punk and hardcore better then a telecaster IMO.

Go for the Tele. I cant imagine why you would want to sell your Les Paul but anyway...Most if not all Tele's are really versatile. At least my 72' custom is and for the most part, every tele I played at the shop was really really nice. Check them out. Plus im not into the whole Epi brand.
#4
Epiphone G-400
thats really the only choice
look at the vintage (A.K.A. faded) model of the G-400
its higher quality than the standard g-400
Gear:
Epiphone SG Vintage
Digitech RP 100A
Kustom Quad 100 DFX
Washburn D10S Deluxe (electric acoustic)
#5
telecaster would be best
My Gear
Gibson Sg
Dean Ml
Kustom Half Stack
Crate 15 watt
Dime Distortion
Dun;op Crybaby Wah

Hardcore maybe, but punk? heh. They're equal but different. I'd definently go with a Standard Tele but I'd hunt all of them within an hour or twos drive and try them before choosing "the one". In terms of quality of build all Fenders are rocks, but as far as sound and satisfaction I've found that I only connect with some of their instruments.

well, try out schecter's, especially the damien fr. but it's geared towards more metal sounds with the emg h4 and h4active though it will produce very clear crisp sounds they wont be very bright but when you hit the distortion the guitar screams. or a fender tornado another very nice guitar much more versatile than the schecter
#14
the les paul can handle punk hardcore very nicely indeed but it cant pull off indie rock.
caught between two loves.

H4's are not active, and the only way Schecter is even selling so many of their damiens is there EMG pickups, which are supposively modelled after the active 81 and manage to sound like absolute crap. But anyway, i agree that the fender is more versatile.

the g400 can do the job with better pickups, and theres a guy in a local band that plays hardcore with a casino so...
#20
yeah dont listen to the idiot who said schecter.
the fender tele is the best way to go. its the most versatile guitar ever. IMO.
the g 400's are ok, but not up to fender build quality or versatility.
and the casino is uncomfortable to me.
try them out though see what YOU LIKE BEST
#21
no there is an h4 active model. but your right the only reason they sell so many is because of there emg's
#22
Pick up a tokai or an agile.
And that would deserve a decent valve amp.
#23
is this all you have to do, disagree with what other people say, shcecter isnt a bad guitar especially if your just starting playing. plus my playing style could be different than yours. and then theres the sounds i like and the ones you like. i agree i woudnt buy the schecter but it's fun to go to a guitar center and play it and it seemed nice.
