So I'm looking at getting a new guitar but I'm not sure which I want.

I love Les Paul's they're prbly my fav guitars, but I also really want a Fender Tele.

The one is an Epiphone Custom Black with Bigsby for $680http://www.musikhaus-hermann.de/catalog/images/2%205825.jpg

The Fender is a American Deluxe Tele for $1220

If you want both guitars equally... the Tele's going to be much better quality. You wouldn't want a $1200 LP?

Nah I don't think I want a $1200 LP cus I'm gonna get an overpriced Epiphone, or a really crappy beat up Gibson for $1200

deoends on what music you play, if you play heavy stuff, probably the tele, if you play blues, or country, prob tele, you can play country on a les paul and visa versa, but if a les paul's your fave, get it, but if you have long gigs, they could hurt your back the next mornin

Word to the tele's. Fenders are pretty much the most responsive guitars out there, I would say. I know that's an opinion, but seriously, I love my strat, which is also an american standard. Your decision would also depend on what genre/sound you're going for.. Tele=twang Paul=low-mid-crunchiness
Hope that kinda helps

Not really true at all... but you're making it seem like what you really want is the Tele, so I won't argue with you.

Well No I'd be interested in a Les Paul for $1200 if it was good, but I can't find good ones at that price. But if you could point one or two out that would be great

You've got a lot of options in that price range. You could get an Epi Elitist (arguably on par with the Gibson Standards) for just under $1200:

Or you could get a Gibson studio for about the same price, which is arguably a lower- quality guitar because it doesn't have a maple top.

Finally, you could also get something like a higher- end Tokai off ebay or something-

Those are two completely different guitars. How can you even begin to compare them?
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

It depends on what you play. Would an LP or a Tele fit your sound better? They're quite different.
