You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I don't reccomend it at all. First off, the body is made out of Laminated Alder/Maple and pretty much is crap everything. It also has brutal fret accesibility, and a bolt on neck. SGs also look like crap without a pickguard, and has brutal color options, and dot inlays...but that's just looks if you're into that.

Musicians's Friend has a sale for a G-400 Deluxe, only 299.99$, I think in April only.
It's even cheaper than the regular G-400. If you can't afford that, go for the G-310, or go used.

G-310=epic massive phail. don't sound good, aren't reliable, and just aren't worth it.
Therefore, G-310=
Used is a good Idea though, also look into agile valkyries.

Please, don't buy that guitar. The SG special is utter crap.
He's a freak of nature, but we love him so.
