les paul? its my first guitar, i am not going to go drop 2k on a les paul.

i got this with the case tax included for 550. thats enough for a first guitar.

if i stick with it i already know what guitars i want next.

gibson explorer
fender telecaster
gibson les paul ( i will afford it someday, maybe not a custom but a nice standard or studio)

550 enough for a first guitar hahaha. You should be so lucky. I got my first guitar, a squire strat, for like $100. All that, and the little part where you plug the cord into the guitar to the amp, the wires inside keep coming unsoldered so sometimes I would plug it in and there would be no sound out of the amp and my dad would have to solder them again Ahhh the joy's.

Maybe Edge would like to have that happen during a concert... then he'd really throw his guitar down lol.

$550 for a used Gibson w/case sounds like a great deal.

Did you have a friend who plays and knows something about acoustics shop with you? Gibson acoustics have a reputation for inconsistency but the good ones are definetly keepers and are so cool looking.
