i have a classic, which is based on a 60's les paul. I have very similar tastes in music as you do, and it works great for all the bands you mentioned. Theyre also very good looking

Meh, the classics are really just 60's neck standards with cheaper pickups and lime green inlays (no offense anybody, they're a better deal than the other LP's)

TS, any les paul will do this stuff.

If you have no budget, go for the custom shop, maybe a 1958 standard?

Or a LP supreme.

The best value IMO is the Faded Standard, same specs as the standard, only 700 bucks cheaper.

1960 reissue les paul.


I've owned a Gibson Les Paul Classic since '97 and prefer the neck and pickups over the standard and it is far superior to the cheaper Les Pauls. No problem getting the sound you are looking for either. I recommend it as well.

Get a custom shop 58 or a supreme as mentioned above.

les pauls are great for what you want and possibly the best option.

any les paul will do as usual the more you spend the better the guitar will more than likely be. try a standard, custom or supreme they're the best options.

or if you have no budget get a complete unique custom
