I am potentially choosing a les paul, either an epiphone les paul standard 60’s, modern figured or a gibson tribute.
Hoping to play selection classic rock, alt rock, hard rock and metal songs. with a Boss Katana Amp, potentially (if this helps)
Any suggestions welcome
I'll add my thoughts as well. I'm far from an advanced and knowledgeable player. I do fairly well though. Like the others said, there is no substitute for trying them all out. I ended up with what I would call a mid/upper end Epiphone Les Paul Standard. I have a few friends who are paid to play and have real Les Pauls. I know they wouldn't B.S. me. They told me that my Epiphone Les Paul plays and sounds as good as any Les Paul they have played. Did I get lucky and find a needle in a haystack? I don't think so. I played several before I decided on the one I have. Long story short...play them all and buy the one that speaks to you.
This trying to get my left hand and right hand to work together is driving me crazy!
