I am currently the owner of a very nice (dont judge) custom Epiphone LP Special II. I love the guitar, but Im thinking further into the future. When it comes to my play style, i play primarily blues lead and rhythm. I was just curious what others would reccomend as a next step up.

Im currently yearning for either a Stratocaster or n Epiphone Dot.

Any suggestions?
I can do it!

And so can you!

Can't go wrong with a strat. HSS if you want a little more punch.



I love the sound, but i play mainly rhythm, are strats good for rhythm. I know Dots are.

well, since your using a les paul

i think the next step up is a epiphone les paul standard
or if youd rather hold onto a guitar longer before getting yet another, id reccomend a les paul custom, id started on the same guitar and no matter what guitar i played nothing seemed as easy as another les paul, and i recently bought one of the epi customs, and they are amazing, and will hold out for a really long time, and they are almost gibson quality [talking about the expensive ones, not the cheap worn ones that are like 800 a piece]

Yeah, they clean up for rhythm.

I almost feel like teles are better for rhythm. But that's just me.

What really matters is how it feels in your hand, and on your body. I like Tele's, but I can't really...get the feel of one when I stand up and play it. Strats just feel good in my hands. Definitely play them both side by side and see.
