Epiphone Les Paul Baritone Guitar

Thinking of buying an Epiphone Les Paul Baritone Guitar
(appears to be the same model as the wooden one in back of picture). This is a craigslist purchase which I will see tomorrow. Any advice on what to look for/ask? More questions inside about price and amps and so on.

I am new to the electric guitar world, but use really low open tunings on my classical guitar and have wanted to get a guitar better designed for how low I go (most of my tunings are around Bb). Hard to get a sense of this Les Paul baritone because all the videos I have found of it are heavy metal improvisations/reviews (here's
the only one I've found).
Does $425 seem a reasonable price for this instrument, plus hard case? For comparison, new Danelectros
seem to be about the same price.
I really know nothing about amps. What would be an okay amp for someone playing a baritone guitar who wants the low notes to sound really good but is not playing heavy metal? Pretty good reverb is probably my most desired effect. Probably can't spend more than $150.
Also, any experience with baritone guitars staying in tune and string gauge?
