I want a Les Paul Standard or higher such as Custom etc. but simply can't afford it. I don't want the Classic's green inlays and can't afford that model either. I don't want a Studio because Les Pauls look wrong without binding. But the good thing is I can afford it. I've thought about a Tokai or Epiphone Elitist but couldn't make up my mind. I really dislike the headstock shape on the Elitist. Just looks wrong. Now I find this. http://www.ishibashi.co.jp/webshop/guitar/epiphone/lp-custom_lq.htm Proper headstock shape and the inlay isn't different as on the Tokai Customs. Long neck tennon and all. Anyone know anything about these or played one?
