Epiphone VS ESP Battle of the guitars
Posted 25 April 2011 - 07:31 PM
I've played with a Viper-400 since then, and wasn't too impressed. The guitar was fine, it just felt meh.
thus, I have to vote for the Epi. Not that I'm an SG man anyway.

IMO the ESP headstock is ugly, & its 'melted' body looks like it's trying to be a Guild that is trying to be an SG.

The G400 has separate knobs for tone/volume. The Viper does not, but has a Push-pull coil tap on tone knob. I'd prefer the separate knobs.
I would go with the G400.
