It's a G400. They make limited editions with different colour schemes all the time.

Radiation23 11-25-2012 09:07 PM

oooh that explains it all, I thought it was a different model

SteveHOC 11-25-2012 09:16 PM

Yeah, it's just a G400 from with I've read on him. You could probably dress up a G400 like that for around $30, and probably get a black one for $200 used if you're so inclined.

no man, I'm just looking for a SG

I think I'm buying this one

Gotta love the triple humbucker.

I actually own an Sg400 that was customized with dimarzio pickups that has that black and white color scheme. Certainly gotta love the look it gives.

Radiation23 11-26-2012 02:20 AM

yeah, actually I'm looking for a fancy looking epiphone SG

^ if you can stretch your budget a little, or go used, buy the same tokai I have instead ;).

Radiation23 11-26-2012 05:34 AM

excuse my ignorance but whats the difference?

Doogy-Style 11-26-2012 05:43 AM

The Tokai is made in Japan, while I assume the Epi is chinese. So better quality check etc.

Also you have the "correct" headstock shape, and I guess better pick ups and hardware. No clue how the wood compare, both are made of mahogany though, as they should

That being said I have never played the epi so it might still be pretty good, the tokai is just overall a higher end guitar. Only problem of the tokai is that it might be hard to find, and you'll need a clearance or second hand to have a low price, as sthey retail for quite a lot.

Got lucky with mine, new old stock clearance, had 45% off.

ooooh, I'm going in blind with this. I had a epiphone zakk wylde and I loved it but I want a SG style so I thought I would be a good idea. thanks I'm going to check further on that tokai

SteveHOC 11-26-2012 09:15 PM

The SG Les Paul Custom is great looking. I had looked into one myself but was concerned with tremolo picking and that extra pickup. Mod it into a five-way pickup selector and you'll have me drooling.

Radiation23 11-26-2012 09:31 PM

with vibrato looks damn good

Radiation23 11-26-2012 09:34 PM

this headstock looks tight...what brand is it?

Radiation23 11-27-2012 10:43 PM

how much would you guys pay for an epiphone custom with vibrato?
