I don't like Epiphone SGs, personally.

And those are two totally different sounding and feeling guitars. More info?

wrong forum, but,
one, what genres do you play? yeah, it matters.
two, its not really a matter of looks as much as how it feels. the guitar may look awesome, but your hands may hate you for it.

What the hell does "better sleaker guitar" mean?

Ok.
What's your budget?
What's your style (genre, inspirations etc)?
What is your current set-up?

I have both and the G-400 sounds 10x better for hard rock and metal.
To me it also sounds better for clean/blues/rock. But it's personal.

Take the price difference out of your mind because my
G-400 plays better and sounds better than my strat.

Try them out and see. Fit and feel are a big deal.
Also the quality varies per guitar for both of them.
You will want a prof setup with 10's for either one.

Huge difference between the two. The SG has a shorter scale and humbuckers have a big tone difference than single coils. I have an EPi SG and it's a very nice guitar. I personally prefer the shorter scale and humbuckers.

Get the strat, and throw in some new pick ups and you'll be good. The JB Jr are great for that humbucker sound.
