hey, I'm a left handed player and even if your not you know there aren't many options. On top of all that I'm like dirt poor right now. I was wondering how good a Epiphone Les Paul Special (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Epiphone-Les-Paul-Special-II-LeftHander-?sku=511383)
I can't stand the color though. Would be decent if I dropped some EMGs in it. I was thinking a 81 in the Bridge and a 60 in the Neck. Oh, yeah and while I'm here. Whats a good Overdrive pedal for heavy rock/metal. I have an Fender Blues Junior which is a little lacking in the overdrive department. My musical interests where well different when I got it. Remember reasonable price. I don't exactly have a lot of money right now. I'm open to suggestions on the guitar too. I just want something feasible for now.
Guitars:
Schecter Hellraiser Tempest Left Handed
Yamaha FG720SL Acoustic
Amp(s):
Fender Blues Junior (needs new tubes )
Guitar Rig 4, if that counts

Schecters are very lefty-friendly. Check out an Omen-6 Or something. Or the Epiphone is good if a Schecter doesn't suit your needs, although I'm sure it will if you look around.

This is UG, we love Schecters and Ibanez and Jacksons, we hate Deans and BCR's, we hate Marshall MG's, and everyone needs a new amp.

I was thinking of Schecter but the left handeds start at like $600

if you want an Epi LP, get the standard or custom lefty. The other models just dont cut it.

A good distortion pedal is the Boss ds1 which is very cheap.

I know it is but I don't want to put EMGs in my SG. So I just want to get a cheap (preferably mahogany) guitar to throw some EMGs in.

Yea, that ones looks really cool . I was also looking at this one http://www.worldmusicsupply.com/cart/pics.asp?Prod=M50-BLKSLH

I really like the body style on it.

The EC 50 does stay true to the body style I wanted and the color is better than the Epiphone so I may go with that one.

Get a Standard/Custom Les Paul like somebody else said. With EMGs in, it will cut metal pretty well. Mind you, it isn't a full Mahogany guitar, it has a Alder body top.
