Hi, I have a friend who wants to buy a guitar. He likes Epiphone Les Pauls, but I told him to stay away because he is into metal. I did the same thing and bought a Les Paul and I wish I hadn't because of the lack of upper fret access and playability form fast metal. But he insists because he is a fan of Zakk Wylde. So, here is what he is looking for. Les Paul or something similar. Budget is $400-$500 in Canadian dollars.
Be cool.

I think it's sick to force kids to take part in hate mongering and sick for spoonman to think its right for any adult to throw anything at a child.

ESP LTD's are nice, but only the more expensive models, like the EC400 (minimum) or higher. All of ltds 50's has sh*tty tuning stability, and rather poor sound because of cheaper materials.

Tell him to save up and then start looking for guitars. Just a couple of hundred bucks more can do alot.

I did recommend Agile..I've been thinking of getting one, screw the upper fret access, they are so damn cheap and nice too! But he isn't allowed to purchase online.
Be cool.

Just tell him to get and Epiphone Les Paul standard plain top and change the pickups.

He'll learn to play, even with the lack of upper fret access.
