I've played on a $100 charvel for 10 years and perhaps it's time to get something nicer. Gibson and Les Paul seem to be the best but those generally cost $500+.

Thanks for the detailed answer. I'm not in a band. But I enjoy playing guitar every day for a bit as a hobby. My current one is banged up and in need of repair. Was a good starter guitar.
The Epi LP Plus Top looks like the perfect fit for me.
Glad you found the advice useful! Even better news is that you should be able to find a used Epi LP Plus Top for between $250 and $350, probably with a hardshell case. If you're interested in used gear, that is :-)
