Yeah, it's just a G400 from with I've read on him. You could probably dress up a G400 like that for around $30, and probably get a black one for $200 used if you're so inclined.

Gotta love the triple humbucker.

I actually own an Sg400 that was customized with dimarzio pickups that has that black and white color scheme. Certainly gotta love the look it gives.

The Tokai is made in Japan, while I assume the Epi is chinese. So better quality check etc.

Also you have the "correct" headstock shape, and I guess better pick ups and hardware. No clue how the wood compare, both are made of mahogany though, as they should

That being said I have never played the epi so it might still be pretty good, the tokai is just overall a higher end guitar. Only problem of the tokai is that it might be hard to find, and you'll need a clearance or second hand to have a low price, as sthey retail for quite a lot.

Got lucky with mine, new old stock clearance, had 45% off.

The SG Les Paul Custom is great looking. I had looked into one myself but was concerned with tremolo picking and that extra pickup. Mod it into a five-way pickup selector and you'll have me drooling.
