Acquire myself a standard or lacquer taste series Edwards Les Paul in excellent condition (used or new) under 1k?

You can search around Kurosawagakki, Guitar Japan and Ishibashi and ask about whether have the model you want. Also, search around on eBay because they do come up, at varying prices.

The lower models can be easily snatched at mentioned websites for under/around $1k, 98LTC/98LTS is when it gets difficult regarding that price range, and the relic/Super Circuit ones are generally over $1k AUD.

You may also find old models (discontinued), which are distinguished by a different headstock inlay, different (more Gibson-ish, 2/3 screws) truss rod cover, fret-edge binding and having ESP pick-ups instead of Duncans (all current production models use Duncans). I guess they are more valuable, but they are seldom more expensive than brand new production models.
