Go with the ESP LTD Eclipse, great guitar. There are many different versions of it, I'm sure you'll find one you'll like.

Go for Ibanez's ART series or the DN series...Killer guitars but not the best of pickups though. It's a tube amplifier rite? Well i can't say how it will sound with different guitars though...It's all about what sound you are looking for...

For that budget (well, maybe a bit more), you could get an Epiphone Les Paul Custom. For 400 you can get an Epi Les Paul, but I'd really save a bit more and get the custom intead.

Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster, Ibanez RG2570MZ, Epiphone SG G-400
Vox AC4TVH head + V112TV cab
Vox Satchurator, Vox Time Machine, Dunlop CryBaby, Boss MT-2, Boss CE-5, Boss TU-2, Boss ME-70
Line-6 POD X3 + FBV-Express, Pandora PX5D

I have this guitar, the EC-1000, and I really like it. New, it'll be a bit more than 400 euros, though. I imported mine from Canada a couple of years back (new), and everything worked out at ~ £500.

The best idea would be to go to a guitar shop and try out the suggestions, you don't want to waste 400 euros smile.gif Take your time deciding.

I'd suggest you to try the Hagstrom Ultra Swede if you can find a dealer, it's just under 400Euros. I have one and I love it. It's not exactly a les paul replica, its lighter (made of basswood), brighter and its neck is super slim.
The tone is still quite fat, but may be coil-tapped which is awesome for cleans.

Epiphone LP Custom is a safe bet, I like that guitar. It's not that defined and with that much low end as GIbson LP, but it's the closest thing next to it. If you are planning on upgrading to GIbson in long term, I would advise this one.
