I am buying my man a guitar. I am leaning towards the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Midnight edition. I think he'll like it. Is this a versatile guitar? It would be his main and only electric for playing in a band with, so I imagine it would need to be able to do rock, heavy rock, some kind of blues and also melodic, clean tunes.

Can you guys please help out a novice and give me some pointers? Is this the right guitar?? Woudl you guys like it as a present?

Oh I am really sorry, I just read that this is not for guitar questions! Sorrry!! I will re post somewhere else. Can you tell I am new? Sorry *blush*
