    After years of acoustic, I have saved enough to finally buy an electric (I am a student and hence short on funds).

    My budget is around Rs. 25000 to Rs. 35000 ($550 to $780 )

    I have 3 options and am clueless about which to go for. They are as follows:

    Gibson Les Paul Vintage Mahogany Electric Guitar (pre-owned but sparingly used and in good condition)

    This is the only decent Les Paul that I can afford, that too preowned. But it would be a real Gibson Les Paul that i can ever buy. Model has been discontinued, but some people suggest that i should DEFINITELY get one if available asap.
    The reviews on the net are hugely positive.

    ESP LTD EC1000 Deluxe Series Electric Guitar
    This is Les Paul style, but within budget if buying new.
    The reviews are overwhelmingly positive here also.
    New Ibanez RG or S series within this price range: Model RG370DX looks good. Here again, huge popularity and recommendation.
    BUT, someone advised me against it because of a Floating tremolo, which will be difficult for beginners. Is that so?

    Genre : mainly rock & metal, learning the blues & hence a bit of that

    Thanks a lot
