look no further. gibson sonex. make sure you get one with a coil tap though, tone possibilities are endless with it. played it last night for some pre-production demos we're working on, sounds really dirty but can clean up real nice. Obviously this depends on the amp you're playing out of as well. I'll give you some samples if you want. But it's basically a poor man's les paul (but completely unique in it's own right). This replaced my sg for a hot minute, but I'm so accustomed to playing the SG that it's tough to permanantly change (also weighs a lot). But yeah, they go for under $500, saw one go for 300 not too long ago, they're not too well known about, but look what happened to the marauder, which skyrocketed in price.....def don't look to this as an investment guitar, but if you want a SOLID workhorse, this is your guitar.
