Hi, i'm interested in purchasing a LP but have not had a chance to go to the store to play any yet. Any suggestions as to which ones i should try first? I've heard good things about the reissues, but i don't know if i can afford it.

Shit...I would actually go PRS SC 245 or 250 (different Scale lengths), but thats me...if you want a Gibson, then the Standard is what you would want...but I say get a new amp...Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier for $1800 ish and then a good LP...maybe a Gibson Studio. And you're right around 3 Grand...
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

Well, when I got my LP special, I had tried out the LP customs, standards, and studios. The special sounded just as good as any of them, but just doesnt have all the superfluous cosmetic work. I'd look into get a LP special, and then getting a really nice amp.

I assume you're playing just open strings, so not to scratch your frets.

My suggestion is to go for a Standard LP.

Or do like i did, a Gibson LP Standard Special, and a used Mesa Boogie Mark IV.

Look into a new amp, it'll make the Les Paul sound way better.

As for which ones, try the Standards and Traditionals, I'd also say look on your local craigslist... you might be able to find some good deals on a used Les Paul. (And if you buy used you'll have money for a better amp.) =p

maybe at this point, i should just get a new amp and settle with my strat for a bit and then buy a new guitar

I would never buy an Gibson Les Paul, they're so god damn overprised. Get an Greco, Tokai, Burny, Fenix, Aria Pro II, Ibanez... and so on, there's many old lawsuit models that are as good as Gibson.
