with 500 bucks, you can probably get a cheap ESP... maybe. Or just get a cheap guitar and put EMGs in it...


EDIT: get a cheap esp and put EMGs in it... that shouldn't cost you more than 500 bucks... maybe

that up there is 199 and is not made of cheap-o agaithis. Just put a pair of EMG 81's (or one 81 and 85) and there ya go... dang... wish i thought of this before.
I HAVE A BAND NAMED FALLING CONFESSIONS
AND I PLAY LEAD GUITAR
AND I P0WN!!!

gibson sg faded or LP faded are probably around that range. I got my ebony sg faded a few years ago and i love it! it's got good cutting lead tone and can dispense some serious rhythm tone. i play punk, classic rock, speed metal, etc and it is great for all of those

the cheap epiphone sg and lps (the specials) are the bad ones
the sg specs pretty good actually it's like a regullar with the sperate volume channels

Get a esp or a higher end epi les paul
