Ok I'm upgrading from from Ibanez Gio. I do not like the Ibanez it has Single Coils and do not sound good for AC/DC, Guns N Roses, Mettalica, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbeth, Godsmack, Disturbed, and so on. I'm on a $300 dollar budget.
The amp I have right now is a Kustom Dart 10. The amp is good I love the amp.

No seriously. With a budget of 400

You should've gotten the Artist ART100. It's great, but it sounds a little bad when you play chords or more than a couple strings.
There be no shelter here.
try to save up for the standard epi sg 400

I acutally Played two G-400s today the G-400 Goth and The G-400 Vintage.
The vintage was more in my price range but im not sure.
I can never tell the store owner only let me play for a few minutes, not even enough to really get a feel for either on to see if i like it.
