Hi,
finally gone out and spent my money on a new guitar. I got an Epiphone G-400 Custom http://epiphone.com/default.asp?ProductID=27&CollectionID=3 :D

It looks amazing with all the gold hardware n stuff, got a really full sound and the pickups are suprisingly good - It beats my Jackson Performer in clean and distorted (especially clean) and its got a lot of variation.
I've found despite the fatter neck I can play just as fast if not faster than the Jackson cos of the action and the fingerboard is really smooth.

All in all, its the best £300 i've ever spend....But then i've never spend that much at once before...lol :? :D

that's a pretty nice guitar. the three fat pups side by side is kinda cool. I bet it plays real nice. congrats.

The bridges that I walk across are weak. Frustrations fill the void that I can’t solely bear.
And I have turned away and searched for answers I can’t understand...

I really like the 3 hum configuration. Probably pretty fun to play. And I really like Epiphone SG's

I don't follow my dreams, I just ask em' where they're going and catch up with them later.

My address? okay its 23 Ch...hmm maybe I shouldnt :D . But anyway, yeah the 3 pickups make it sound more filled out and chunky, rather than making it a proper heavy metal guitar or anything.

... clicked the link and OMG, a childhood memory! IIRC, Mike Nesmith of the Monkeys played the Gibby version of this. He wore a white suit to match and looked pretty cool.

Enjoy -- Greg

Tonny Iommi of Black Sabbath played a Gibson version of it in the Iron Man video...What a weird video...The drummer seemed to be wearing kiddies pyjamas lol :?

Nice looking guitar! I have thought of that one for myself.

I actually think Mike Nesmith was the only one that really knew how to play an instrument and thus was the first to leave the band. He felt offended by the spectacle and show rather than any real attempt by the other Monkees to be "real" musicians. In later years, the others did get better at their instruments, but the Monkees albums were chock full of studio musicians. Can you imagine the tour with Jimi Hendrix opening for the Monkees. What a debacle that was. Hendrix was actually booed off the stage in places.

It is a small world for metal fanatics. I welcome you fellow musicians, especially the metalheads!

Congrats, three humbuckers should give you a nice combination of sounds.
