Post please explain this to me
is it just me or do people hate the 400?

i mean on this reissue thing the 400 doesnt get a look in...people liek the 500 over the 400...i just dont get why...the 400 is rarer, japan only, sexy finished neck. no crappy reversed headstock....i mean

i just dont get it.....i love my 400 and wouldnt trade for a 500 ever...500s are much more common

People here don't like "regular" trems, which is a damn shame.

Ding!


I love the classy look of both the 400 and 500, but the hardtail and reverse headstock seal the deal on the 500.

I like the 400 better than the 500 MissMisstreater.

I like ordinary headstocks better than reverse ones. I still like reversed, but ordinary ones are better in my opinion.

Alder provides a brighter tone than other woods (such as mahogany), and as alder is not a particularly dense wood it provides a resonant, well-rounded tone with excellent sustain

basswood was typically used (along with Agathis) for favoured for less-expensive models. However, due to its better resonance at mid and high frequency, it is now more commonly in use with superstrats

I like both the 400 and the 500. Other than the finish they are quite a bit different. I don't care if the headstock is reversed or regular. I do prefer hardtails, but that wouldn't stop me from getting a 400. The finished neck doesn't bother me, but I have heard other people say thats one thing they don't like about it.

If a 400 came up for sale around the time I bought my 500 for a similar price I probably would have bought it.

The 600 and 900 don't seem to be the most popular models either. It doesn't bother me I love my 900.
