I'm trying to decide between buying an Epiphone Gothic SG Special or a Samick Fastback?? What do you think would be the best choice for rock? I'm also thinking about an Epiphone Les Paul Special II.

I have been playing a mexican made squier strat for a while. I just picked up a Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker. It has a p-90 single coil pick up instead of a humbucker. It has great action and sounds great too. Costs about $400. You might want to try this before you decide on an epiphone. I believe that Gibson carries a similar Flying V and SG. Go to Guitar Center or another major store and try out all of the guitars in your price range. Make sure you test them on an amp that is similar to yours.

Head down to your local music store, plug them in, and try each of them. Don't take anybody's word for it.

I tried them while I was down there. I'm going down to the store tomorrow to get the Goth SG, I liked its sound a bit more than the other. It will be even better when I get this for it!!!

My first guitar was a used SG with a broken trem that made the action rediculously high. Nonetheless, it sounded great. Just make sure the action is good.

I saw those prices. I bought my Les Paul from a local dealer, but he matched the price of Musician's Friend, I got a case thrown in and they ate the taxes. That way I was sure of EXACTLY which guitar I was getting and how well it played.

I kinda like the Gibson VooDoo models. I think the SG goes for about $800. (I know twice $400, but...)

Good luck!
