    Hi people.
    I've got £450 to spend on a les paul but I'm not too sure what to go for.
    I already own a 2008 les paul faded honeyburst and I love it.

    I've been looking at 2 guitars and don't know which one to go for.

    1 - Burny RLG-60 SL, or
    2 - Tokai UALS48 Premium.

    Could anyone help me decide which would be better or is there something else I should be looking for?

    Buy second hand on ebay, and you should get one of each for that much.

    Just had a look at the burny on ebay, man it's been battered a little bit!
    I wanted to buy new really or mint condition.

    You'd get a new MIC Burny for £450.00, they're supposed to be quite good!

    If you're after new I'd try the Burny and Tokai models and get the one that sings to you!:fingersx:

    for 450 quid you're only going to get something new if its a lower grade Chinese model. You'd be better off getting a used MIJ even if its got a few dings.

    Or as L6ON already said, save some more :thumb:

    I recently paid that for a 2003 MIJ Tokai GT with upgraded (Seymour Duncan) Pups and a hard case from GAK in Brighton. I was looking a buying one new from Richtones but couldn't put the GT down once I'd picked it up.
