I bought an Epi les paul less than a month ago at guitar center, and ive been playing it, and i must say im not a fan of the thickness of the neck and the single cut away, (though i love the look i love the classic rock vibe that it exudes) so i was thinking of getting some ibanez rg of some kind with a wammy bar, and 24 jumbo frets and the other good stuff that comes with it, so basicly its like a classic corvette with an engine with 100,000+ miles on it (LP), or some like awsome pimped out souped up car (ibanez), i also play every kinda music, from classical to metal, from classic and hard rock to funk and jazz so yah i also have a vox valvetronix ad30vt,

thanks in advace

Eh...

I suppose if you don't like the Epi's neck then there's no point in keeping it...but before getting an RG, you really should try a bunch of different guitars in the same price range. No use buying a guitar sight unseen on the grounds of needing a more comfortable neck.

You've read it a thousand times because it's true: play 'em all. Play them all until you find something that "sings" to you. Good luck!

lp's are funny. They are all the same on paper but they all feel different..
Dont buy a guitar because of looks. Why get used to something when
you can jump so far ahead on the learning curve with a guitar that feels
like its made for you...

I find this funny, I just sold a RG 2550 prestige to get my Epi LP std plus. I could not be happier... Well, unless my LP was a Elitist.

Its all preference. This is just my opinion but my LP feels more higher quality then my Ibanez did. There was nothing wrong with it, I guess it just wasn't for me.

Good luck finding your guitar.

well if i were you and i like the les paul but not the neck i would get an agile with the slim neck... or a hagstrum
#11
a corvette will always be better. so keep the les paul, haha. if you dont like it then you dont like it. maybe find a les paul with a smaller neck...

If you like LPs, but prefer a thinner neck, take a look at Jay Tursers. They are a thinner LP, both in neck and body, but with about the same fretboard width and radius.

As everyone here has already said, play many guitars until you find the one for you.

For years I avoided LP's. Just a few months ago I sat down to play one and I ended up trading in my Schecter for the Limited Edition Epiphone Les Paul and I absolutely love it.

Good luck. Don't rush it.

Maybe think about an ESP/LTD Eclipse (LP copy). Slim necks with large frets and hot pickups like other typical ESP/Ibanez metal-happy guitars, but the styling of the LP that you like.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
