Well, lets just say i went through alot of trouble for this little baby. I first ordered a G-400 Pro in Ebony, and it arrived with Broken pots on both volume/coil tap positions. Then i ordered this guitar, and when i went to take it out of the box, the headstock literally fell in my hand, completely severed from the neck. So i wondering if maybe owning an Epi SG wasn't meant to be, so i checked out some other guitars at the Sam Ash store, but none attracted me like an out of the box new SG. So i ordered it one last time, and it turns out the third time was the charm. However the guitar was not setup very well, it was completely out of tune and the action was waaaayyy too high, and there was some kind of sticky residue near the top of the neck. After fixing those issues, the guitar looked, played and sounded great....FINALLY.
