I know very little about guitars. I play casually for fun, songs like clocks, mad world, house of the rising sun, whatever really. Ive had this ion electric guitar for probably 8-10 years, and my cousin owned it previously. Recently i was thinking about upgrading to something a bit better, but i dont need anything professional. the best guitar i could find in my price range used is the epiphone les paul 100, its 200$. Is this a decent upgrade? the "ion" brand only made one guitar i think, its like a knock off stratocaster, but alot of people on the internet say its actually not a bad guitar. The les paul the guy says is brand new, which would be nice since my ion is really old and hasnt had string changes in years. i also dont know how to change any parts or anything, so im just looking at the base guitars. the les paul doesnt come with an amp, but i still have my ion amp and i also have a fender electric bass amp. If i get the epiphone i plan to sell the ion, what should i do?
