I cannot decide which one to purchase!

Any advice would be appreciated.

I play mostly indie/rock

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I've heard great things about Tokai guitars. I have no personal experience with either one though.
Epi Elitist LP Plus
Marshall Class 5
Vox AC30 CC2

I don't think people rave so much about the low end Tokai's.

I was going to vouch Agile, but you're in the UK. Look at some reviews for the Tokai and compare it to the Epi. If you can try them both out.

To second this, I've found that the $500 Vintage VS6 SG I played was way better than the Epi G400(which is $600 here), and was nearly on par with the $1600 Gibson SG(no idea what model, SG was all it said on the truss rod cover), and it felt just as good as the Gibson too. I've no experiences with Tokais, but I've heard they're good, and honestly, unless you don't mind a pickup swap I wouldn't touch that G-400, the wood/feel/look is fine, but I've never played a guitar with muddier pickups...but each to their own, have you tried the G-400?

Nah, I prefer to tune lower. My tunings usually go into weird Hebrew symbols.

What crook store in Canada sells G-400's for $600 bucks? Stay away from there dude.

They actually go for $300-350 new.

Long And McQuade. Sad part is the only other store in Newfoundland where I live that sells anything that's lefty and not an Ibanez(can't stand Ibby necks, and I'm not huge on the feel or the looks either...DONT'JUDGEMEPLZ) sells Gibbys for even MORE(There's a $800 Epi Explorer there...o_o). o_o Well thank you for telling me, the crappy one without the pickup covers(G-310) sells for $400 there.

I think you should go to the store itself to try the guitars you're looking at then order them off musiciansfriend.com or something. That's a horrible price to be stuck with :/

MF has lefty G-400s for $360
