A very nice offer on the LE G-400 Pro The next best price is with GuitarGuitar, which was the place I almost posted it for until I checked PMT (Obviously) I've still not finished my custom build, and was actually rather tempted to buy this. I'll have to leave it and get the project finished!

Lovely finish on this, it's right up my street as far as the SG models go.

Also no.. it doesn't come in two parts Unless you drop it

SG just doesnt look right with sunburst.
I know nothing about guitars but this is very shiny......so heat added.

The SG design is deffo top heavy. You have to keep hold of the neck or it swings down as the body is so light. It takes a bit of getting used to. I love mine. Zappa was a fan. That’s good enough for me. Though nothing beats a strat for balance and comfort IMO.

Had the SG years ago when first started learning guitar. Don’t know how much they usually are these days but £240 sounds a bargain considering it cost me £220 nearly 20 years ago.
Nice. Don't forget many shops will price match if you want to buy locally (Rich Tone in Sheffield for example).

Bargain price for an Epiphone. I think the plain top ones have been this price before but not the sunburst? Not an SG fan though personally but if you are this is a great deal. And it probably stays in tune too

Usually I'm not a fan until I spotted one of the HP models I've mentioned it a billion times by now, but I have proceeded to try and replicate the look with a custom build. Now I kind of just once any of them with some kind of flame top

These are ace. They were around £350-300ish before Xmas, then dropped to £249 (which I posted a deal for) but £239 is a steal!

Really impressed by the quality for the price, I caved at £299 for a red one and have no regrets (I wasn't massively keen on the honey burst personally, but you can't grumble at this price).

The 60s profile neck might be a bit thinner than what some expect from a Gibson type guitar but feels great to me.

Love Zappa but hate strats. Was gutted when Frank switched.
Very good price but looks way better in cherry red in my opinion.
Got my son got the Translucent Red deluxe in the BF sales. Stunning guitar - this is an amazing price if you are happy with the colour!
They usually look best in red, but I'm a sucker for honeyburst, and in this case it really shows the flame top at its best.
Great guitars.
Heat, just for the balls to name your company that.
Stupid question, but would this be a good guitar to learn on?

I only know of FZ using one strat - a yellow custom build Performance - in the 80s. Lots of cool mods of course. It sounded killer. But then his tone was always killer :-)

But sure TBH, some SG necks are very thick and that may not help you at all.

Edit: I can't find any dimensions for the neck other than a width at the nut of 1.68" / 43mm which is standard. Apparently Epiphone call all of their necks SlimTaper even when they are the size of a tree trunk so that doesn't help either!

A guitar with a RRP of ~£359 and it's a Deluxe Pro!

What would be a reasonable amp for a beginner for this guitar? Thanks

The cheapest and quietest one you can find. Literally no point worrying about tone or volume while starting out. Anything will do.

In fact, the lower the volume, the less embarrassment, which can be a good thing while learning for some people

Take a look at headphone amps like the Amplug, or mini/pocket amps like the BlackStar Fly3 (surprisingly loud for it's size)

I have a intermediate book by Justin, it's very very helpful. The theory is breaking my mind.

Look into PodFarm by Line6 - you can plug your guitar into your PC / Laptop and have 100's of different amp sounds. I used that when learning for 12months and loved it!

Now i have Fender HotRod Deluxe

In my opinion, having played guitar for over 20 years and when I first started playing it was on cheap POS guitars, Fender Squire, a cheap Epi LP.... then when I had the money I got a very, very nice Fender Tele, and since I've been able to afford nice decent guitars, they're just better. I'd recommend spending at least £400-500 on your first one, and you'll have it forever. I'd check out the Fender Player Series, I'd go for a Tele personally, but plenty of nice Strats for around the £400-500 mark. Then look at a nice Vox Pathfinder mini practise amp, I think these retail on Amazon for around £60, really solid little amp. And make sure you get a half decent guitar lead too. For £600 you'll have a decent set up you'll be more than happy with.
Totally agree....some sound advice

Buying a cheap guitar is a bit of a false economy..

Firstly if you decide guitars are not for you you're stuck with it .....just check on gumtree or fleabay to see how many hardly touched cheapo's are about
Secondly if you soon decide you want to upgrade you've the same problem

Look at something in the 300 - 500 range and you won't go wrong

....I've shifted a few half decent guitars on without hardly losing any money...even doubled my cash on one of them

Yeah not so sure a 'quirky' feeling sg type guitar is the best thing for someone starting out....but hey whatever gets you playing

* cherry red

Would echo what others have said about buying from a shop instead. In the last couple of months I've bought a bass from PMT online; the online team said they would set it up upon request but when it arrived, it clearly hadn't been out of the box. I then bought my tuner pedal, a bass amp, and then last week an ES-355 Pro from the Newcastle store instead, who were brilliant and happy to adjust the action on the ES-355 at the point of pickup.

I know nothing about electric guitars, but a 4% - £10.00 discount on a £250.00 item isn't my idea of what a "HOT DEAL" should be aiming for.

This is a slightly reduced item and deserves no more promotion than that.

My pleasure, happy to help. I just think in the long run, better to invest properly at the start to not be disappointed. You could spend £300, and then after a year want to get something better. So spend a little bit more at the start to prevent that. Plus, if you spend a bit more, you'll probably love it a bit more and appreicate it a bit more.
Really tempted by this even though I know it'll play like sh!t
i have also played guitar for over 20 years and there is nothing wrong with this deal. I am lucky enough to own a number of high end guitars but my favorite one to play and the one i keep on picking up is a charvel san dimas which i picked up for less than £400. Epiphone make decent guitars

this model has a set of decent pickups and the hardware is decent

Been playing over 25 years and used to look down at the Squiers and Epis and would never have considered anything under £500, however the more recent Squiers and Epis aren't like how they used to be.

I've got a Classic Vibes Strat which plays nicer than my Fender (it's a Mexican one to be fair but by no means shabby). This G400 Pro is equally nice to play.

I wouldn't rule these out. I suspect this particular model is being sold off cheaper because the only difference between the deluxe and non deluxe is cosmetic and there appears to be a new design on the Epiphone website. That said, for beginners I'd totally agree with going in to a shop (preferably with a friend who plays) and getting a setup etc.

I gave mine a little setup myself and whilst it didn't need huge adjustments it feels a lot better for it. I think at this price if you can try one first and then get a pro setup you'd end up with really nice instrument.

Good shout on the Vox!
I have seen Gibson ones for around the 500 quid mark...

.....which would be a better investment but double the price

Guitars can be strange beasts....always disliked the look of strats...never appealed to me at all even though I'm a big Tele fan....

but saw one on gumtree and it just spoke to me ...ended up driving 2 hours to look at it...was in a bit of a mess...a few dings..gunk on the fret board..rusty strings ...wouldn't stay in tune.
.....paid £280 quid ...got it home ..cleaned it up ..new strings...now one of my favourites !

Usb Audio interface but line 6 are probably the best for the value.

Behringer have one for like £30 but you wouldn't get the software.

Also, check Facebook or gumtree for second hand amps, usually someone somewhere is giving them out for £10/£15 :-)

A lot of second hand music gear (imo) is usually good enough, I've rarely bought brand new. All my amps have been second hand

Best amp I had to start with I'd Fender Mustang V2 - awesome amp and came with built in tuner. I got one for about £40 and it was beautiful! Can't recommend that amp enough
