I went to my local msic store today and tried out an SG and Les Paul both Epiphone, and i loved the Les paul by far, alot denser and great feel and fluency, but the thing is is that they were charging $900-$1200 AU for it, and i thought you could get them in the $500 range, is there any place that i can get an Epiphone Les Paul in that range?

Edit: Though there were ones in there for $400 but had only i volume and tone toggle, is there much difference between that one and the higher priced one

He's aussie... the cheapest I've seen a standard is about 670 I think... I'm not sure that I personally would want to pay for it that cheaply (I'm always suspicious), but if you're interested, you can find one example here:

thanks guys, there are proper ones on ebay australia that are $500 from a warehouse in New South Wales, brand new, and they're the same ones as the $900 ones, do you think i should get one from one of the warehouses selling them cheaper?

Most of you guys are responding to him in USD, while he's talking about AU
but holy crap, 900 AU for that? Thats like ~800 USD, while the Les Paul Standard is ~$400 USD~$450AU

With epis you want to buy the one you play. The epi quality control is pretty spotty. The really good one at the store doesnt mean the one you get from a warehouse will play as good. It might or might not more likely not. The money saved wont do any good if you dont like how it plays, or one with a screwy fret board.

Thats suspicious (excuse my **** spelling) also when your not going to play it i wouldnt go for it i would rather pay 900 for something i play and like and pay 500 for something ill only get to play when i pay for it
