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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
