Yeah that Schecter does Blues and Jazz amazingly well. It's also great for classic rock and really anything. It'll also play better than any LP in the price range.

That's not a Les Paul. Therefore, that does not answer the gentleman's question.
I personally do not like the look of the mahogany Les Paul. If you have seen one in person they look like an unfinished product. I like the Classic.

He is not asking "what kind of Schecter do you like?". He is not interested in Schecters

A Schecter would be a much better value for his money, I was just trying to help.

i'd say go with a BFG, but only if it's a black one(the other colours loook like crap) and the BFG is alot like a collector guitar, so in 20 years it'll probably be worth a lot

I say save a little more, or buy a used LP Studio.

I'd say save a lot more and buy a Standard or classic, as far as Gibson's go, you need to go that far before you really get a great axe. If not, then get an Elitist Epiphone, same price as those guitars you've listed, but FAR better!.
Current Rig:
Gibson Firebird Studio
Limited Edition Schecter 35th Anniversary C-1
Schecter Jeff Loomis Signature 7 FR
Ashdown Fallen Angel
Custom 7 Firebird from Ignition Custom Guitars (check them out)
ESP Phoenix
#17
+1 to that, standards are the way to go

tho to get the best you really need a custom shop one, damn expensive tho, standards are bad enough
#18
BFG's may look a little weird, but the one I played a few days ago was one of the smoothest guitars I've ever played go for a Bfg

Yeah, go with an Epi Elitist. They are great guitars, and are superior to the lower end Gibsons.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.
#20
I also say go save for a Standard or Classic. THAT, you will not regret at all. The studios are nice, I'd get one, but I got a Classic instead and its really nice, and I think it sounds better than a Studio, but thats just me.
#21
get an sg... i have a les paul and an sg... i like the sg better because its lighter the lp starts to hurt your back if you stand too long. Don't worry the sg is also good for what your going to play... i have/reccomned this one...

Stfu. Seriously. No one will ever like you. End it now.

On Topic: Hmm. Don't settle for anything lower in cost than a standard, or as an alternative definitely consider the Epiphone Elitist.

You really weren't. The guy was asking about LP's, and as a rule of thumb you only suggest a different type or brand of guitar if they're really making a huge mistake in making one, and Les Paul's are far from huge mistakes in this case.

Out of the guitars listed, I would go with the BFG. IMO its got a unique look and a pretty good sound.

However, in that price range, I'd do the same thing many others have suggested. Get an Epiphone Elitist.

Those guitars a fan'figgin'tastic for the price.

Honestly in that price range you will get a MUCH better Epiphone than a Gibson. You're really just paying for the name. However of you want a Gibby go for it.

It's going to be much better than any gibson in that price range but if I were you I would save another 400 or 500 and try to find a good deal on a gibson standard les paul as long as it's pre 2006 (non chambered) you get the real deal. That's what I'm going to start saving up for after I get my dean from hell It'll probably take me like 5 months but It'll be worth it.

That's your problem for buying online then.

There is a golden rule with Epiphones:

Epiphones can be amazing guitars... so long as you go to a store (possibly several stores), and try out a bunch (sometimes as many as 15 or so) before you settle on one. Epiphone's quality control is their biggest flaw, and only a small minority of Epis are actually worth buying - but then when you do find one of those, they're incredible (well, with a few upgrades of course...).

Buying an Epiphone online is simply not a viable option, ever. With only about 10% of Epis being the 'rare good ones', buying online, where you can't see the guitar before you buy it, plus the fact many online stores are still shipping out old stock from before Epiphone upgraded all of their guitars on the production line, is just like pissing on a big wad of cash then setting fire to it.


All that said, of the LP's there... none of them.

Either save up for a Standard or Classic (the bare minimum Gibson you should ever buy; everything else is a waste of money), or look into an SG instead.

He's correct. Go try out several Epiphones. They are hit and miss. I went through 7 boxes before I finally landed on mine.

I would look into an used Epiphone Elitist instead of a low end Gibson.

Or one of the many copies like Tokai.
