Feature:
The features of this instrument are really good also the toggle witch from Trebble to Rythym and combination is a great feature that fits well with many styles. The hardware and components are perfect, nothing is wrong with it. It included a gator case which is worth about 120 bucks. It also included a free cord. Click here for more feature!

Quality:
This guitar is great, but has notice two things. First, the pickup switch seems cheap; it wiggles from side to side as well as up and down. Second, under the bridge, the varnish didn’t get applied there, and might you feel and see bare wood. Other than that, this guitar is great.

Sound:
Incredible sound!, the pickups are great, it has a lot better sustain than others. Being an epiphone, it still delivers that thick, gritty, heavy metal sound you expect from a les paul. Ability to play a lot of southern rock and hard rock and it able fits them both. The rhythm is nice for more bluesy sounding

Value:
For the price you can’t go wrong. This guitar is definitely worth the price, but the Les Paul 100 is just as good for eight hundred dollars. The price of everything on this site is so low. Click here for latest price!

Ease of Use:
It was very easy to get great sounds. Just turn it on and you will fall in love with it. Treble or rhythm whatever fits you. It is perfect for your personal taste of metal/ modern rock. Tone controls help to modify to your liking. Extremely playable axe that is very forgiving and the raised bridge makes it a breeze for soloing.

Desirability:
This guitar looks really good. The top is the best. Although it needed to be waxed, it is a good look. The wood grain and color on the actual guitar is 1,000 times better than the website does justice to it.

Overall:
This is a great buy for anyone interested in getting a Les Paul, This is amazing guitar for its price sounds good. Its looks great, plays amazingly!, has a real down and clear tone and is well built.

Epiphone G400 SG Style Left Handed Electric Guitar

Epiphone G400 SG Style Left Handed Electric GuitarThe popular SG style featuring Alnico-V Humbuckers, and a beautiful Mahogany Body for lefties.

Feature:
Every part is defiantly used but there is not a bunch of features for this guitar. The pick ups were nice and the looks and the finish of the guitar were very good. The only things you can think of to add to this guitar are coil taps, a phase switch, and neck binding. But all of that would change the vintage vibe and raise the price so its probably best as it is. Check Price.

Quality:
This guitar is amazing!!! Best paint job for epiphone. The finish, etc were very good. Better in some respects than the Mexican made Fenders. The build quality of this guitar is astounding! The pictures you see of these do not do justice to the finish. It is absolutely gorgeous.

The rosewood on the fretboard even has a little figuring to it, and looks FAR better than Korean made Agile. There is a pinhead sized spot on the bottom of the body where there must have been a tiny air bubble. This is absolutely the best looking guitar for the money.

Sound:
The sound is great. It strange that this model felt and sounded better than the Tony Iommi signature model and yet costing about half of what the Tony Iommi model cost. The G400 model is made solid and is quite impressive sounding as well as nice looking.

The pick ups had a nice bite to them in drive mode and yet when you played both pick ups through your old Ibanez chorus it sounded nice and full without being muddy.

The SG has a different tone than other similar guitars, and it takes a little getting used to. The sweet spots are in different places than other guitars for the neck pickup, due to it being a little further back from the fretboard than a Les Paul or others.

Maybe that’s why some have complained about the pickups because this guitar sounds EXACTLY as it should. Even tried other pickups and they did not have the pick sensitivity or the vintage tone, or especially the low-end balls that the stock ones do.

Ease of Use:
This is a nice thin guitar that sits well in your lap. Epiphones necks be a little on the thick side (except the Casino/Sheraton/dot models) for your hands.

Value:
This is THE biggest bang for your buck. No doubt, a great value for it being a second guitar on stage or very good first guitar that won’t find its way to traded in for a long time. Check latest price.

Desirability:
This guitar looks amazing!!!

Overall:
Overall this is an amazing deal on a quality guitar that plays well and has a true vintage vibe and tone. The quality guitar to bring to the gigs if the weather is too cold or to hot and humid for Gibson Les Paul is exposed too.
