So i worked all summer because my dad said if i did work i could buy a new guitar. I even showed him what i was going to get_). I tell my dad im going to buy a Epi Les Paul Custom from a guy whom is giving me it and a Gator case or whatever for $590. Which is a good deal, but he is now saying no. And im pissed off because he wont let me use MY money to buy what i want. Got any suggestions towards maybe finding a solution in which i get to buy my guitar?

Buy a truck load of porn instead then when your dad asks about it tell him that he forced you to it by not letting you get the guitar.

Because he can get a GREAT Gibson for $600, right?

Epiphones aren't horrible godforsaken instruments. People lump Squier and Epiphone into the same group quite often, but Epi's are better quality than Squiers.

To be honest, though, if you save up a bit more you could buy a Fender Tele/Strat, which would do much more for you in terms of tone range.

If i went ahead and bought he would kill me, but first he would break the guitar in front of me. And Lrn2play, I want a Les Paul but im not a millionaire so i cant quite afford a Gibson.
#20
suck it up and deal? do you already have a guitar? if so, you dont absolutely need a new one this minute. youre fourteen. i promise, if you save it now, in two years when youre ready to buy a car, youll be glad you still have that extra $590.

I got an original 1971 Gibson Explorer for $700 in perfect condition and a hardshell case. But also I dont get what anyone see's in Les Pauls, they are unconfortable to play, most are on the heavy side and they suck when you play up the neck.

I agree on the LP's. I played a few at a GC and couldn't understand the huge deal behind them. Sure, lots of musical icons have played them, but they're simply not for me. Too heavy in my opinion. I play guitar to enjoy a light happy time, if I want a heavy instrument I'll pick up my bass. That thing's a beast.

I doubt if he'd be able to find an Explorer in as good condition as you found for as cheap as you found. Most places I see Gibson guitars, they're always in the $1500-$2500 price range. Most Fenders I see are in the $500-$1100 price range.

i own a Gibson Les Paul Custom made in 2007 and a LTD KH-602 guitar.

the LTD is pretty light, and the Les Paul is a bit heavier. They are both equally comfortable to play, LTD as a little better when you go up the neck and the Les Paul is like 5 pounds heavier... to me not a big deal. You get great sustain and tone from those extra 5 lbs of wood and usually they're made with 2 different kinds of wood so you've got a cool hybrid tone

i also like the very accessibal pick-up switcher, i can use it like a killswitch (like randy rhoads did )
