I'm thinkin' about getting this Epi Les Paul. Its in my price range (up to $500) and looks pretty good.

I just wanted to know if anyone had any experiences with this guitar, positive or negative, or any other alternatives in the price range to keep an eye out for.

I haven't tried that one before, it looks pretty cool. But if you want an Alternative, I'd recommend the Epiphone Les Paul Custom, again, this guitar will make you happy, if you want a good Les Paul for a lower price.

'98 Fender USA Deluxe Tele

A bunch of funky pedals

I'd recommend a Hagstrom Swede over an Epiphone, honestly. supposedly better guitars in general. The basic Swede reissue would run you about $500 as well

Standard Plus = Full mahogany.
Custom = Mahogany/alder sandwich.

The Standard Plus is going to sound alot more Gibson-y.

I actually do like the sound of Alder more, but most people looking at Epis want the Gibson sound.

Customs are full mahogany now

Customs are the way to go if you can afford it

But the guitar you are looking at looks alright
