I had planned on getting a Vintage VS6 as my new guitar but then I saw something else... the Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400! I'd like to know the differences. I might try to see if a local Epiphone dealer can get me one. I would like to know what seems better though. Is the Epi worth the extra 100$? Thanks.

I play Classic Rock (AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd...), Punk (Sum 41, Blink 182, Gob...), & lately, a lot of Linkin Park but having their tone fully isn't a big issue.

^Well I normally dislike Epiphones, but this one being Gibson Certified... well I thought it would make all the difference.

I am not familiar with the Vintage line and I am eyeing a used Epiphone Cream G400 with 3 pups and all gold hardware for only $315.00 so I would go with the Epi myself. Does Vintage have a website? I would like to check them out.

I don't think so, but I haven't heard a bad thing about the company yet. Here is a link to all the Vintage VS6 info you need.

Thanks, That's what I found when I just did a search. They look great I would love to give one a try but I have never seen them in any shops around the Boston area. I assume they are made in the UK from reading the catalog.

Thanks, I didn't think I'd ever find one.

So I think its just up to the pups & tuners. What would be better? Epi or Vintage?

I doubt they are made in the UK. Made for the UK Market maybe. Probably comes out of the same plant that makes Epiphone though. As for quality, the only things I know about Epiphones for sure is the hardware tends to be rather cheap on them, with poor electronics as well.

That's a tuff one because I don't know much about Wilkinson pups that the Vinatge has and the Epiphone pups are hit or miss. I have played two identical Epis at shops that didn't perform alike. I would plan on upgrading either one later with better pups.

I planned up upgrading the pups on the Vintage with a Burstbucker Pro/57 Classic combo. So the VS6?

lol, i was thinkin they might come out of the same plants that epi's do too. They seem somewhat similar, i'm not sure about pickups but I would try out both and see which you like better since two guitars with similar specs might be totally different to you. And the hardware on epis is decent but yeah the electronics usually aren't the best but mine doesn't give me any problems.

I have only played a few 'vintage' guitars, and I didnt think much of them, I prefered the epi lp that I had tried.

Anyway, I prefer Epis over Vintage any day. Vintage stinks of cheapness, the Wilkinsons were weak, the beaten up finishes reak of desperation, even though one or two editions aren't exactly cheapomondo.

Well I LOVED the Vintage, but I have yet to try the Epiphone. What if I can just get a standard Epi G-400. Better then the VS6?
