I recently purchased an Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 Pro in Ebony from my local Guitar Center. I had been gassing for one of these for some time, and when one showed up and I was able to try it out, I pulled the trigger. Firstly, this guitar has a surprisingly comfortable (to me) neck with excellent fret work. Very easy to play up and down. The body is comfortable in the lap and, on a strap, the balance is very good. The really amazing thing, however is the way it sounds. Whether using the humbuckers normally or split, the sound is amazing; much more articulate and snappy than you would expect from most Epiphones and easily on par with the Epi Pros I have that cost a lot more. I must say if you are looking for a very enjoyable guitar on a modest budget, check out these G-400 Pros. I think you will be pleasantly surprised, if not immediately enamored. And, if it impresses you the way it has me, jump in there and channel your inner Angus.
