I'd say the Epi is because the trem on MIM strats sucks.
ESP Custom Shop 40th Anniversary Eclipse
ESP Standard Eclipse-II
Ibanez AF85VLS

the les paul is a better deal, but if you spend a little extra you can get a really nice mexican strat.

The Highway is out of my price range.

Can anyone give me details into why it's better. I'm not very experienced.

Will this be a good second guitar - I currently have a G310?

The whole Les Paul vs. Strat debate is rather a moot point. With any Les Paul and Strat within the same price range there going to be similar in quality and sound. The thing is they sound and feel alot different. So its really personal preference, go out and try them both.

save up and get the highway one when i played a mim i thought it sounded like crap and i hate the feel of les paul's so if you want one ask me highway one has all american parts but if your just going for them i would go with the mim strat with a texas pickup upgrade
