hello everyone
havent posted in here before as i usually just stick to the pit
anyhow
im thinking of buying a semi hollow or hollow electric guitar
the only real requirements i have is that it has humbuckers (no single coils)
i was thinking les paul (an epi) or something?
ive got a budget of around 1000 (aus)
but i am happy to try out a guitar and get that guitar ordered from america with the aus dollar as high as it is that might be cheaper
so an good american retail sites that can be trusted would be appreciated
and also recomendations on guitars
o i play rock, blue, heavy metal (rage against the machine ) rhythm guitar and i do like a nice clean sound
so basically something with guts that sounds good dirty and clean
thanks a heap guys

Les pauls are not hollow or semi hollow.

That being said, if you do want a Les paul (an epi) then go with the Custom, because it's really one of the only epi's that I find is really good. Some of the standards are cool too, but I've only played 1 crappy custom, and every standard doesn't really do it for me, only a few.

Also, a sure bet on a semi-hollow is the Epi Sheraton II. I work for a Luthier, and he owns one and loves it. it's only like 600 bucks, (i got mine for 450 used) and considering he makes multiple thousands of dollar instruments, if he likes it, it's gotta be good. I also love it, if that helps.

Good luck, hope you find somethin good.
