Talk about off-topic! I don't really know anything about guitars. Whenever I learn something accidentally, I crank my bass up really high to knock it out of my brain. However, my son is really getting into guitar playing and he's looking for recommendations for a good quality, used Les Paul-style guitar with a whammy bar. Barring that, any good quality, used guitar with a whammy bar. He has another guitar that he loves (G&L LSAT, passed down from my uncle), but he doesn't want to add a whammy to that for sentimental reasons. So, what brands are known to be not too expensive, punching above their weight, quality and price wise? And, what's a reasonable price to pay for a used guitar? I'm thinking $300-$500? Is that too little? Too much?
