It's often good to read some reviews on www.ultimate-guitar.com and www.harmony-central.com before deciding. Case in point, that AX-50 is the best case of looks-over-performance. The Jackson looks good to me on paper, try some out.

And low range Epiphones (priced lesser than the Epiphone Les Paul Studio) are said to be pretty much crap. Ask around. Greg Bennet would be a better choice...Avion AV6 and Torino TR3 are said to be better than their Epiphone counterparts of a much higher price level.
