Guys, is this a good deal? https://reverb.com/item/2840838-epiphone-g-400-les-paul-custom-sg-2000-antique-ivory-mik?_aid=pla&pla=1&gclid=Cj0KEQjw9b6-BRCq7YP34tvW_uUBEiQAkK3svbNADzSu8ICFv7WN63obueQdEl6ePPOjb9-EFvzLyoMaArQM8P8HAQ I really like the looks of the Custom G 400 and it's a pretty rare guitar but I don't have $700 to buy a brand-spanking-new Custom.
Any tips are appreciated

P. S. I play metal and hard rock (Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, etc.)

EDIT: also there is this: https://reverb.com/item/2537980-epiphone-sg-custom?_aid=pla&pla=1&gclid=Cj0KEQjw9b6-BRCq7YP34tvW_uUBEiQAkK3svQTYMnTIaSPe7rkMUU9BR3PzIVqNlss8mgAJyhDNmQsaAp2W8P8HAQ idk why it's black, I thought they only came in Ivory Antique finish (creme like color)

have you ever played a gibson (or epi) three pickup guitar? I haven't owned one, but the ones i have played left me with an odd aftertaste. I am not downing what you like, just saying that it may not live up to your fantasies.

Of all the SGs I've seen or played, one specific SG (white three-pickup Gibson Custom with, as i recall, gold hardware, ebony fretboard, MOP inlays, etc.) stood out, and it was probably the only SG I've ever seriously liked well enough to consider buying. I would definitely have augmented the switching on it to take better advantage of there being three pickups (as it came from Gibson, it wasn't any great shakes sonically). It had already been through the shop to have a tungsten weight hidden in the bottom of the guitar and it was absolutely perfectly balanced in a strap. Someone had swapped out the metal saddles for nylon ones (or maybe it had come that way) and whoever had done the nut was an expert.
