Close to Les Paul tones at a bargain price, the Tokai Love Rock is worth a look. This is a Chinese made Tokai.
A real find, with quality humbucker tones, a solid build, and superb playability! The sound is deep and smooth, and when you crank it up a touch, the crunch and drive are pure rock and roll.
It even has its own brown hard case, which is unheard of for guitars in this price range. All in all, a superb outfit.
