Hello All, I've been lurking on your forum for the past 3 weeks and wanted to introduce myself and tell you my experience. I played guitar when I was younger and stopped playing for 20+ years. I recently decided to start playing again and visited my local guitar shop to purchase a relatively inexpensive guitar. Having always been a fan of Ibanez but tired of typical strat shaped guitars, I purchased the GART-60. After a month of playing it, I simply could not get it to sound 'right' to me. So I took it back to the shop. The sales staff there suggested I pick up a 2019 Epi SG-400 Faded. This particular shape has never interested me since I felt it looked a bit demonic. I picked it up though and instantly fell in love with the feel of the neck, weight and overall feel. After playing it for a few days to make sure everything was good, I adjusted the action to my liking and set up the rest of the guitar (intonation, relief, pick-up heights etc). I was completely impressed by the quality of this guitar. I only have one slightly high fret (4th fret on A string) and other than that, there isn't a single issue. I'll probably polish the fret down a bit in the future, but it doesn't bother me much since it is quite mild. What a wonderful guitar!
