Ive been looking around for a Epiphone G400 but i cant figure out why a G400 Vintage and G400 Faded cost so much less than a G400? Can someone explain this? Also, whats the difference between a G400 Vintage and G400 Faded? Thanks
i dont know specifically, but I would guess the pickups are one reason for difference? I know Epiphone comes out with a lot of custom and variations of the G-400 that really the only differences are either colors or pickups. Mine is custom alpine white with EMG's. I really wanted the color more than EMG's, but I love it!
It's the finish... much less labor intensive.
what should i get: G400 Vintage G400 Faded or just a regular G400?
If the cheaper ones have the same pickups go with them, and dont forget, you can always upgrade the pups
Get the vintage, cheaper, has binding, seem to have better acoustics to me.
The only difference as far as i have been able to tell is the finish. The satin finish i guess costs less to put on than the glossy finish.
I love the look of the faded finish.
I found that the faded finish is more comfortable to hold than the glossy finish.
