The pickups aren't as good on the Epiphone and neither is the finish, if you got the time save up for a gibson. The Epiphone is still good though. Is this gonna be your first guitar?
yes, the quality isn't great, but depending on which one you get, they can be decent guitars and not that much different fro mthe much more expensive gibsons
^ not quite... depending on which one you get, theyre actually nice guitars
definately better quality than squier
I would definetly suggest an Epiphone SG G-400.. i have one as my second electric.. upgrading from a squire.. couldn't be happier... do it
G-400's are great guitars.

And I know i'll get flamed for this but I liked the Gibson SG Faded guitar, so I think it's worth trying out.
