A used Vintage Lemon Drop. It's basically a relic'ed Peter Green Les Paul.
My Arbor ap230 will be here Monday. The one I have heard had awesome sound and feel.
I have read other reviews give it good marks. Never heard any negitives. $250 can't go wrong.
Maybe a bit more than $400, but a Czech built Dean Evo Special is a heck of a LP style guitar.
Jay Turser's not sure if they're around anymore, but i bought my first Lp from them and i've had it for over 10 years and it's still going strong...no other guitar like it
