I have one on the way too...Aria looks like the new MIJ hype....
Those of you in the know, what are the sleeper Japanese Les Paul copies? I have heard about Tokai, Greco, Burny, Edwards, and Bacchus, but I am wondering if there are equally good Japanese Les Pauls that can be found here in the States for a reasonable sum (say $500).

yes, as I stated from my limited experience
personally, unless an individual is extremely lucky, I don't see consistant deals at the $500 level for higher quality, I see those types of deals for the lower end stuff
I would rather spend twice, to three times as much, and receive an awesome guitar, instead of one that isn't half bad for $500
for my $$$$ . . .
You have the $$$$$.
Happy for ya.
I don't and many others here don't, either.
My level of playing doesn't require much, but I have a killer Burny for under your "twice or three times as much."
And my opinion? The OP should take your advice on a Burny RLG-50, mid 1980's model.
I caved this morn, after 2+ months, and bought an 1988 Mint Collection Greco cream custom.
Could not resist for the stupid price and it had DRY 82 pickups
But if he can swing it,

I don't think RLG-50's are $500 guitars anymore... especially on ebay.
No pix yet... it's an ES-335 though!
You're gonna love the DRY '82's.
