Depends on the kind of music but I like the Prophecy and the Black Beauty.
ESP Custom Shop 40th Anniversary Eclipse
ESP Standard Eclipse-II
Ibanez AF85VLS
yep depends on you. If you play any metal or hard rock then prophecy all the way, if you want regular les paul type rock then the custom.
That black beauty is fugly. The prophecy is unreal though, never heard of it before but it looks awesome.

Edit: G'n'R? In that case, custom would be my recommendation. although they seem to get mixed reviews...

I think i'll get the custom, so which amp should I get? Amp or guitar first? I don't have a humbucker guitar so.. i'm not sure.. but 99% of the time it's amp first for me.
for amp get a palomino

edit: or depending on your amp budget, maybe a vox or fender.

this is like comparing a flushing toilet to a hole in the ground
custom, black beauty or the non-EMG prophecy.

I have a Vox AD30VT, is that good for Guns N Roses or will I need a marshall?
i have the same VOX...for my opinion it's perfect for almost every stuff!
especially if you're not a pro...like me
and if i were you i'd choose the custom version...i haven't played it yet...but i have a feeling that from these that you mentioned custom would be the best...
get the prophecy with dirty fingers instead of EMG's.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
get the black ultra two...the best loking guitar ever but i dont know about the sound
u can always change the pickups

Epiphone les paul Standard (sunburst)

Crate Vintage Club 50

Ibanez TS9 (Turbo Version?)

Alvarez Jumbo Acoustic
the ultra 2 seems really interesting. it has some new tech which gives you awsome blues, jazz tones and can give you some good hard rock, metal tones. also dont bother with the prophecy and ex guitars because yeah you have 24 frets and stuff but fret access on a les paul is so bad it just isnt worth it
