I was thinking in the event that I start gigging and that my guitar is fUxor3d, I should have a back-up. My current rig is an Epi Les Paul Standard plugged into a Peavey VK112.

I've come up with a few ideas as a start. Either a Squire Jagmaster or Tele custom of the same brand (it's has two covered 'buckers as well). But I was wondering if there was anything that could sound sort of close to the same.

My band plays some modern rock, and occaisionally blues and some classic.

I was wondering if UG had any other suggestions though.

Thanks guys.

WrstEDIT: Forgot the budget. Try and keep it under 250

Well, since you have a budget, I was going to say get a G400, but I perfer the Tele custom over the jagmaster

If you already have a Epi LP Standard, I think it would be a complete waste of your funds to get a Epi LP Custom.

If he had the money to do that, I'm sure he would have asked for recommendations for a guitar better than his Epiphone. Besides, he already has a good amp, a better guitar probably won't drastically improve his tone.


I'd buy the Jagmaster over the Tele custom. The Jagmaster will probably sound more like your Les Paul because it's scale length is closer to the Les Paul than the Telecaster's scale length is.
