I have a really junky guitar, like one of those ones that you get in a bundle (I think it's a lyon guitar) and I want to get a new one. I want one that sounds good and has some good features/effects/whatever you wanna call it in it. I don't want to spend more than around $500 though. Any ideas?

Epiphone les paul is probably best for all of those, or a fender strat but personally I don't care for fender's, but they are good guitars.

07 Fender American Deluxe Strat
07 Fender Custom Telecaster
09 Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster
09 Fulltone OCD V.4

Is there a reason that it's called a goth Les Paul? And how can i tell if it has a bridge and neck pickup volume?

Change the pickups to GFS(I did vintage 59 neck/ mean 90 neck, kind of a 335/casino hybrid, if you will, amazing vintage tone on anything)
Vintage 59:

Perfection.
When you get some extra cash, put a bigsby on.
It'll look like and sound like an extravagantly expensive guitar.

Please do not insinuate anything sexual from that.
