th p/u's in the goth models are the same as the studio models. they are ok, but not great by any means. higher end epi's have decent p/u's but in the end it depends on your amp and what you are playing....you can put the most expensive p/u's in your guitar, but if you amp sucks then you are wasting your time and money

bad p/u's + nice amp > nice p/u's + bad amp

Get the cheaper one and change the pickups yourself to EMGs or Seymour Duncans or some sh*t.

the goth les paul has better pickups, but the SG G400 has better pickups than both of them!

and if you just buy the guitar you prefer look/feel of then change the pickups when you have enough money. both guitars will be fine, but to get better things is human nature
