    1985 Gibson SG400X Custom Shop Guitar Ferrari Red Very RARE | eBay

    WTF? I know that I am by no means an expert with Gibson or Epiphone, but this looks like one strange beast to me. I thought that G400 was an Epi model and the headstock is kinda strange to me also with a Floyd Rose locking nut. Looking in the control cavity it seems to not be the original paint job either. Kinda looks like an SG mated with a Strat and had this bastard step child.

    It should have had a reverse headstock for string tension and been a neck through.

    A G400 is an Epi model. That is an SG Special 400. SG Guitar Forum | SG Special 400 The XPL headstock showed up from time to time on Les Pauls, SGs and whatnot from 85 until, IIRC, 87. It's a Kahler locking nut, not a Floyd and the Ferrari Red was an original color.

    That's the sort of thing that Tony Iommi would play if he was into '80s "hair metal" like Poison or Whitesnake... :naughty:
