It looks great, feels great and plays very well. Lovely sounds from both pickups. If I had one gripe about the SG-400 it would be that it is slightly neck heavy, if you let go of the guitar the neck will slide towards the ground!
At one point the neck pickup or the pickup selector switch may have become faulty but it was fixed for free at the store where I bought it!
