When i start working this summer, i'm looking to upgrade from my trusty (or not so trusty) Epiphone Les Paul studio to something a little better in quality. Definately in the below 900$ price range, and good for playing on a Fender Tube amp in mostly Punk and blues styles. Any help appreciated, thanks very much!

Look at schecter, or the esp ltd models. you will be alot better off with one of those two instead of an epiphone
