Epiphone? Agile? Used lower end gibson? And which model of the brand you think is best in that range? I want something with above average les paul tone, with bite and the most sustain. I don't want to spend too much, i don't have any 24.75" scale guitars and sometimes i just love to play the shorter scale and the 25.5 gets old since i just don't feel nearly as fast as on shorter scales, but i mostly prefer the clearer tone of the longer scale. So i'm looking for a les paul with that complex rich tone https://bestelectricguitars.reviews/best-electric-guitars-under-500/ . I don't mind if its "B" stock, blemished, used, just in great condition. ANyway tell me what you think!
