I was at Guitar Center today and was playing some SG's. I played both the 1966 G-400 and a Gibson SG Special.

Between those two guitars which one is better?

They both felt the same to me, but I didn't get to hear each one through a good amp, they were both unplugged. The only amps open were Spider III's, so I didn't bother finding an amp to play it through.

They are different in price, but are they different in quality? Would the Gibson be more worth it?

They are both quite nice. Was it the faded Gibson?

The sound isn't my current concern, it is just the build quality.

The Gibson stayed in tune pretty well, I could play a clean octave power chord even after it was on the shelf the whole time.

The Epiphone was already out of tune and I couldn't find an amp with a working tuner, so I just stopped using it.

I am ending the thread, I decided on a 1966 G-400.

I found out that graphite/pencil in the nut/bridge solves tuning problems by a long shot, so that won't be a matter any more. The 1966 G-400 looks SO much cooler anyway.

I still need my new amp first, once I finally get the chance to sell that horable MG I will have to start putting money in for my JCM 900.

Sounds good. I like the 1966 G-400 a lot myself too

I have an SG Special in Wine Red (Check The Who @ Woodstock to see Townshend's) and I freakin love it. It was more of a fluke buy over the internet when I originally got it (Was a n00b guitarist) but turns out I made the right choice. Beautiful tone. Looks sexy. Plays great.

When the faded SG's first came out I didnt think they were worth the 500 they were going for then. They felt kindof cheap to me. If you like it go for it, I chose a MIM strat instead.
