400 penny sweets....Sorry that had to be said, you walked right into that one!

There is sale on at Thomann.com where they are selling an Epiphone Les Paul with EMG's 81's/85's for only 450 euro. Which is about 500 dollars. I know thats over the budget but I mean, dude! Come on! DUDE!

I would say a new amp, and then a new guitar. Just save your money up so that you can get what you REALLY want. You don't wanna buy a guitar then a year later wish you'd bought another.

Fender Strat
Epiphone 335 Dot

my fender stratocaster does the job for all that stuff...its actually rather versatile.
its a mex, you can get em for 400 pretty much anywhere on the internet.

well right now i want a guitar... even though an amp would be nice because my guitar now is pretty bad... like the playability of it. its got some bad fret buzz and i already adjusted the neck, stuff like that. so for guitars.... what do you think of epiphone SG g400?
#16
Id say save some money then get an LTD-400 but youll have to pay more than 400. theyre 900 but it worth the money youll spend. Thats what ive done as my second guitar with a Viper 400 instead of buying a 100 with cheap pickups and firewood.

esp/ltds are definately something to look into. Try a viper, or an M/M-II. If you want a floyd or a neck-thru (I recommend both) its gonna cost a little more, but definatly worth it considering the stuff you're gonna be playing on it.

but actually i have an Ibanez SZ520QM that i got for 380 but it seems more into the metal genre then my kind of music... the main thing tho is the appearance of the guitar.... i dont like the color.... so i can send it back if i want ( which i probably will because i dont want to regret getting the wrong guitar). but theres a small local shop nearby where they buy guitars really expensive. theyll buy my 175$ starcaster jumbo pack (amp, stand, gigcase, learning videos, chord, guitar,) all that stuff for 175$ and theyll take the guitar for 90$, so im guessing theyll take this guitar i got off the internet for maybe even more then i got it for

Lmao, that's what I have....sucks huh?

I just bought an Ibanez RG3EXQM1, looks great, plays great, and feels great. It was only $350.

You could try getting that, and buy a wah pedal or something with the remaining $50.
#27
Epiphone G-400 is a good choice. mine was around $350, i love it, it's my second guitar and i like most of the same music as you
#28
a nice set of knicker-bockers, thats what $400 can get you.

EDIT: a used schecer c-1 classic i mean

Get an esp ltd explorer, or v, or ax. Id go with the explorer, the points are pretty low and it just sounds amazing.
Plus, it only cost me about $270 so you can also get urself a distortion or something pedal for about 100 then ull be all good

Im canadian btw
