    hi out there..
    found this forum by browsing
    infos over my g 400 custom

    found it on ebay for 300,- euro
    in mint condition..
    made in quingdao 2006

    set up was done well so far
    but the screws for the input jack and
    one button were nt tight at all,
    but i fixed this with loctite(from bike repair stuff).

    the finish is done well also, but slightly too thick
    and small noses here and there.

    i like the set up so far for the start
    very bluesy, thick sounding guitar in my opinion.

    i will change though the neck pick up to an paf pro
    and will replace the cheap plastic nut by a bone one.
    but its a beauty..:)

    salute!

    I saw one of these at a reduced sale price yesterday and I'm thinking of snagging it.
    Your post could be an omen telling me "Grab it ! "

    Biddlin, a mate of mine has a fluorescent snot green switch tip on his Ibanez! The guitar is flourescent yellow, and he's using those damned flourescent
    strings!!!
