What are the differences between the Epiphone G-400 and the Epiphone G-400 Gothic apart from the colour scheme?

Also would a G-400 with a pickup upgrade (apparently the stock G400 ones are terrible) be a good idea?
My Gear:
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Peavey Vypyr 30
DW Collector's 3 pc drums
Mapex Black panther snare
Sabian AAX/Zildjian K cymbals.

No, there is no difference between the Goth G-400 and the G-400 SG. All the 'Goth' series are the same as the regular versions, e.g. the Goth LP Studio is the same as the regular LP Studio, the 'Goth' Explorer is the same as a regular Explorer, etc. It's just the finish that changes.

Yes, changing the pickups would be a good idea since the stock Epi pickups are very bland (they're not actually that bad, they're just very boringly average jack-of-all-trades pickups), but wait until you actually have the guitar in your hands first and you've actually heard it in person before you think about changing anything.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Please don't tell me you actually still depend on fret markers to know what you're doing.

Wrong- last I checked they have ebony fretboards.

EDIT: Oh- they are, in fact, rosewood now...
