So i have been deciding between these two guitars for quite some time now as my second option guitar cause i sold my Squier Strat. (Epi 1966 G-400, and the Epi 1958 Explorer) and i had my mind pretty much set on the G-400 for the last month or so. well it was out of stock online and my local guitar center cant just get stuff in stock no matter what......so i was gunna wait til when it was in stock (today) to get it for the $299.99 dollar discount price tag. now its been bumped back up to $399.99 and they moved the instock date until August 20th...im like wtf. so i guess ill just have to wait or just get the Epip Explorer as my other guitar. o what shall i do..

the explorer is extremely nice, but the pickups are a bit microphonic. The SG is light weight and a bit faster. The Ex has a warmer sound. its up to you. there both good
Peavey XXX combo *upgraded screen resistors, Tung-Sol's, and 6L6's*
Schecter Syn Std. * modded, scalloped, and worn*
Schecter C-1 Elite *still sexy*
Ibanez AEL 12-string

i kinda want the SG a little more b/c i already have a LP which has similar sounds to the EX but i cant seem to get my hands on one

Can you afford the G400? If you can, get it. If not, get the Explorer! Problem solved!

the explorer is more than the SG ...i can afford both lol.

but will not be able to try out either one before putting some money down...b/c i would have to special order it into guitar center, or just buy it online

I own that sg,and it is badass,basically a gibson with different tuners,dif pickups(i believe),and its made in china.But unlike every other epi sg,IT HAS A FULL PCIKGUARD!!AWESOMENESS!!

wait and itl be worth it.
meh

I thought G-400's went for $349? They're both nice guitars, get which one you think would fit you better.

EDIT: Oh, it's the '66 G-400.
