hey. until recently i was going to use £600 on a guitar and £400 on an amp, but now im gonna spend £400 on a guitar and £600 on the amp because ive heard that you should spend more on your amp than your guitar. im gonna get a Orange Rocker 30 amp. what guitar should i get under £400? i like les paul shapesand i would prefer humbuckers. any suggestions?

I would say a Vintage V100, and mod it. A cheap, good guitar, and with the mods it'll sound really good.

But hey, what do I know?

Tokai might be worth looking into.
If you can find a second hand japanese made one, you're on to a winner there.

Tokai Les Paul or an Epiphone SG. You could get a Gibson SG Special faded for £450

Import yourself one Agile AL-3000 or 3100. I did and i'm still darn proud of it.

If Humbuckers are preferred, and you like les pauls, i would go for a high end epiphone, maybe the black beauty.
Or if you like strats/telecasters i would get a fender.

If you can find one... a ESP KH-203.
LP body, but has EMG81 pickups. Floyd rose aswell i think

What styles do you play? Because if you like metal, maybe one of those new Epiphone Prophecy Les Pauls, they come with EMG 81/85 set or Gibson Dirty Fingers (it depends what model you buy) and have speed-tapered necks I believe. If not metal, try looking at Agile, Edwards or Tokai.

No point. Vintage are made in the same factory to the same quality and you can buy a Vintage in most UK stores for much less than it would cost to import an Agile.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Doh, I remember you saying you were interested in my Rocker 30 ages ago but then you didn't show interested, would have been much cheaper!

Anyway, Epi Les Paul Custom.
