Hello, I need help deciding between two guitars. I was looking into an SG shape, just because it's cool looking. I know that I can get An Epiphone SG at one of my local music shops, and try it before I buy it, but I am not so sure on my secondary option. Check it out here Agile Valkyrie. Now, If I am not able to try the second option first, If anybody has played it tell me your opinions. An Epiphone G-400 is considerably more expensive, and from the Epiphones I have played I am not impressed with the quality. I'm 15 years old, so I'm short on money, so take that into consideration. The music I play varies pretty widely, so all I want is versatility. I already have a Cort SP-3. I will be playing it through my Fender FM 212R. I will use it with my Boss DS-1 also.

Also, I dont want anybody to be all like "Go w/ epipone beecuz de made dat shape first so thay R better, I havent tried that guitar but i no epipone is beter" Trust me, my Cort can compete with a Fender, so we obviously know this is not always the case.

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

well i absolutely hate the epiphone g 400 so i would say, look more into the other on, or look into an ESP viper.

Thank you, checked it out on musiciansfreind. Seems a little too metal for me, but I will definately ask about it next time I visit the music store.

The Epi Goth G400 I had was pretty decent.

If you're looking for that body type, you should *definitely* look into a Samick Torino.

It's not as neck heavy as the SGs/G400s and the ones I've tried have played very nicely and sounded decent for the price.

Review of a TR3 by Guitar Player

Take it for what it's worth.

One thing to note, the "High-Tech" tops aren't actually made out of wood, which is kind of nice because you don't get any "maple coloring" of the tone.


And I, um, love you too?

The Agile one is ugly. That Samick one looks pretty cool. But I'd go Epiphone just because they're closer to the real deal. Epiphone pickups are pathetic though.


lol, I wonder if people even read the original thread sometimes.... But now that I read that review, I am gonna seriously consider the Samick. I might not be able to afford the T3, I'll settle for a T1, if I cant scrounge up $500.

Glad I could be of service.
