so to add to my guitar collection, i bought this today.

well... not this... but the contents of it.



it's a Fender 'Deluxe' Gig Bag


but there's a surprise


it doesn't contain a Fender!!!




yep, it's an epi!

can you tell which one it is yet?

yes...

no...

maybe...

lemme give you a clue

yep, it's a G400 SG

sexy huh?

the ONLY thing that makes it look not-stock is this one thing.


the input jack has a slight crack around it so the previous owner (Rob) put a washer over it, and it looks great as non-professional repairs go!

now for a review.

bought second hand, so didn't expect perfection, but to be honest, i got pretty damn close.

played one of these before, a couple of my friends have them, and they play very well!

action was great, no issues there, no fret buzz, no bowing, arching or warping in the neck, intonation is great as well.

wasn't perfectly in tune but 30 seconds of plugging it into a tuner sorted that out.
though it does go out of tune quite quickly but thats because the strings aren't wrapped around the tuning pegs enough (once at best) so just gonna swap the strings for a set i have at home (currently at girlfriends so can't do it today) and it should stay in tune perfectly, especially as it has grover tuners!

only played it through my pocket pod, haven't had a chance to play it through my full rig (as listed in sig) yet. but will do as soon as i get home, but through the pocketpod & sennheiser headphones it's fantastic. just what i need for my current ACDC fascination!

so price to quality ratio = 100% 10/10 "spot on" whatever you wanna say, it was f'king awesome!

now you're wondering what i paid aren't you?

£75

yes, you read that right.

seventy five great british pounds sterling.

for a £290 guitar.

ree zult.

Wow! That's one great deal. I've always preferred Fender to Gibson/Epiphone but SGs are my one exception. I've always wanted a sot of sky bluey coloured one.
