If you wanna play rock, the Les Paul is a good all rounded guitar for you. I dislike deans in general, so it might be a little biased. but i really do like epiphone les pauls, at least those that are standard and above. preferably custom, those look great. and that's coming from a fender guy.

Depends what your playing.

For slower blues and Lighter Rock, and even just Rock in general, the Les Paul is better. It can play Metal as well, More Versatile, but not the greatest for Death Metal and very fast stuff, because the neck is pretty thick, and theres bad upper fret access and only 22 frets.

For faster Hard Rock, and Metal, the dean would be better due to high output pickups, thinner necks, and locking trems. Better fret access, and on some models, 24 frets.

How can you compare Dean Razorback and Epiphone for Rock ? I mean comon Dean is fully metal gutiar, and Epiphone is Rock guitar. So that would mean Epiphone wins by default.

i agree. The Dimebuckers (SH13s) in the razorback give it a balls-to-the-wall metal sound, but the les paul has a fat, bluesy tone.
totally different leagues.

Actually, the Razorbacks have the Dean V profile neck which is far from thin.

It's apples and oranges TS.

Both guitars have their advantages.

Honestly, from a playability and sonic stand-point, and without taking looks in account, I'd say the Razorback pisses all over the Epiphone.

Good luck with the LFR trem though.

I would get a normal ML rather than a razorback.
