stay away from epiphones! for the same price as that g400 you could get a decent ibanez, schecter, or esp.

for reals. don't get an epiphone.

as for an amp, i think you should save up 200 more dollars and get one of those spider half stacks. i know everyone is gonna quote me and be like "OMG NO THAT SO BAD AMP" but i really think it'll be worth it. you're gonna need a half stack eventually.

i just started playing myself, i went with the ibanez rg120 and peavey vypyr 15w total cost $348 (with 2 yr warranty on the amp). I went with the vypyr for the effects, i used to dj so im all about effects and tweeking sounds. went with the ibanez because of the fat frets and thin neck, makes it a hell of a lot easier on me since my left hand is about as useful as a football bat and was cramping up constantly on my wife's acoustic. but it all comes down to what style of music are you looking to play really and what feels most comfortable in your hand. as for the amp, whats not to big for your place and whats not to small for your place and what you want out of your amp really.

Do you want a lot of sounds? As in not a lot of versatility?

Get a modeler that isn't a Spider. And one of the aforementioned guitars. Also look at Agile.

epiphones are good guitars. they are definitely not the guitar equivalent to a spider III. but even if you think they are terrible guitars, lets put it this way:

if you put an amazing, $5,000 cutsom guitar thought a sh*tty line 6, it's going to sound like sh*t.

if you put a "terrible" guitar like an epiphone through a half decent amp, like a Champ or a blackheart, you'll still sound good.

but tha main thing is if your sh*tty at guitar, it'll come out in your playing. if you're a good guitarist, it doesn't matter.

best example there is
