okay well ive been doing excessive research on a new guitar seeing as it will be the only one ill get in years. anyway when i was looking at potential guitars i stumbled on a firebird. its a epiphone vii in sunburst and gold hardware with the lyre tremolo bridge. but its selling for like nearly $700.
i was wondering if that was a good deal or if i should get a firebird v with the humbuckers and just switch out the pickups? its selling for $400 flat i believe. anyway hope you guys can help.

ooh another thing is, is this versatile enough other than being for blues and classic rock? thanks.

Before the Epiphone VII was discontinued, it was selling for $500 new...
