I'm 39 and in the process of trying to learn to play guitar. I tried to learn in high school, but gave up. I'm going to do it this time! I currently have an American Strat and an American Tele that sound great. I mostly play though headphones via Amplitube to keep the noise down. I tried a $2,500 Gibson Les Paul Standard at Sam Ash and thought that it sounded nice and played well. I don't really want to spend $2,500 right now, so I was looking around at Epiphones. I saw that Musicians Friend has these. Sorry, it won't let me post links yet.

Anyone have one? The reviews seem good, but I can't find a local store that actually has one in stock to try. Would it be better to just wait and buy a Epiphone LP Standard?
