"more better"
Nice from someone failing miserably at coming off like an expert.

The epiphone G-400 is a VERY NICE guitar for the price range.
Set neck, phillipine mahogany body, block inlays.
The stock pickups and potentiometers aren't perfect, but they're playable.
You could do alot worse.
Like anything ibanez.

Please do not insinuate anything sexual from that.

Very true I hate ibanez electrics...

But see as in both roads presented...

Guitar: Paul Reed Smith SE Custom Electric - $599.99

Amazing tones out of this guitar. Sounds real good with Boss pedals IMO.

Amp: Peavey Classic 30/112 Tube Combo Amp - $599.99

Great Amp. Played my hss out of one of these... and it sounded so sweet.

Geez, my grammer may not be perfect but there are better guitars then g-400 at that price. The epi sgs are 350-420 dollars depending on the model. With that you could get an Agile or a nice mex strat/tele.

Have you ever seen an agile stripped down?
They're like 10 pieces of wood.
The metal parts seem to be of poor quality.
Pickups are weak and thin, and not the good kind of thin.

The G-400 is 400 dollars, that's their LOWEST SG-style worth getting, trust me.
About the price of a mexican stratocaster, yes.
However, the player who wants a gibson SG isn't going to settle for a mexican stratocaster, it's a completely different taste.
The strat is alder.
Single coil pickups
One volume, two tone
Tremolo bridge
Bolt on neck
Whereas
The G-400 is mahogany
Two Humbuckers
Individual volume an tone controls
Stop tailpiece and tune o matic bridge
Set neck

The G-400 is a better playing guitar, better fret access, slim taper set neck, Mohagany. It's the same as the gibson, save for headstock, tuners(though epi tuners are more stable in my experience), electronics and knob placement.

well yeah, they're grovers (are they Rotomatics?).
Also, the AL-3000 and up are either 2/3 piece mahogany, depending on the model.
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)

Audient iD22 interface
Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40

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.

Not sure. They're not USA grovers, and they're metric in size, so I'm not sure.

i totally agree. i never have any tuning problems with my epiphone. even tho it only has twenty two frets. playing down there is way more comfortable for me than any strat.

Well, the stratocaster has 21 frets.
Gibsons have 22 as well.
The tony iommi G 400 has 24 frets, though.
