ok i was wondering if it would be better to get an epiphone g-400 and put emg's in later or get a epiphone prophecy custom sg which already has emg's in it. please dont post comments like "neither" or "they both suck" because im just a beginning guitarist and want a cheaper instrument

well if you're just a beginning guitarist then you don't need to be worried about a new instrument atm. be worried about advancing yourself enough until your instrument is absolutely the only thing holding you back before you decide to switch.

I'd get the Prophecy, saves you the hassle of installing them.
bands/artists I've seen: Protest the Hero, LIGHTS, Andrew Bird, Flight of the Conchords, Incubus, Nine Inch Nails, Between the Buried and Me, Guthrie Govan, Cynic, The Devin Townsend Project, Scale the Summit, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Darkest Hour

The Prophecy also has 24 frets and an awesome finish.

Personally I'd get the Prophecy if I had the monies.

I'd go with the Prophecy. It has better specs too, like ebony fretboard, 24 frets, satin neck, etc.

make sure you really want emgs before you get it...

The prophecy is an incredible guitar. I played one and fell in love with it. The EMGs are even good clean, I was simply amazed by it. The neck is extremely comfortable and the build is very solid feeling. It can obviously also scream.

It's not really a "budget" guitar, seeing how it's 800 USD, but it's worth the money. I would have gotten one if I had the change, and I don't even play metal (which is steryotypical for emgs)

although without a tube amp, emg's aren't going to be living up to their full potential.

I don't know about the Prophecy SG, but the Prophecy Les Paul I played had a thinner neck (shredder thin, actually) compared to the normal Epi neck. What I just said should be taken with a grain of salt though since the (normal) SG neck is thinner than the (normal) LP neck...
