The Sammick Avion has a great looking and traditional arch top design, popular with guitarists of all styles, and still brings in a style all of its own. The arch top adds weight, but the extra rigidity under the bridge improves string sustain and gives it an authentic quality. Grover tuners, covered humbuckers and a tune-o-matic bridge all bear resemblance to the features of a top quality Lea Paul - except the price, only £235 The Epiphone Les Paul Studio is the first in Epiphone?s range of Les Paul guitars to feature a set neck, giving it the classic profile and feel of a Les Paul, and contributing to its great tone. In addition to this, the Studio has open Alnico classic humbuckers, designed by Epiphone for ultimate tone and sustain. With a set of Grover tuners (the leading name in machine heads) and separate volume and tone controls for each pickup it?s clear that this is the best value and most authentic of the entry level Les Paul models. £249 The patented Aria PE Elite body design features a heel-less neck, giving easier access to the higher frets, and their patented bridge and tailpiece. This PE Elite has a fantastic wine red finish with cream binding, a set neck with heavy chamfering around the joint, 2 open humbuckers and the usual twin volume and tone conrols.The PE elite has a much thiner body than other guitars of this type, making them a fair bit lighter whichg may suit someone who wants the classic style but not the added weith of a set neck single cutaway. Although not strictly a Les Paul copy, the Aria PE ELite has all the attributes that make Les Pauls so playable and at only £175 cannot be overlooked if you are on a tight budget!
