SlapKid's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good plan!"

Epiphone 1966 G-400 Pro
China of course, beautiful lake placid blue color kind but greenish hue, mine has a white pearl pickguard wow.
Gloss everywhere, fairly thick, zero default.
Alnico pickups split-standard panel with push-pull on volumes.

22cases, vintage mcaniques BUT that take very good agreement.
Very well finished, handle very well, ditto frets that want?

Compared the SG400 worn brown, here you have 35 roros more: more rock and split-microphones, push-pull volumes, and stop tail is equipped with anti-drop rods. Moreover it is a very limited edition aesthetics.

USE

Always compared the 400 wb, the handle has the same profile, but the polish is much thicker so it is bigger in the leg.
The pelham blue is much heavier and cooler to the touch. The handle is slower than the wb, varnishes oblige.
The sound is different vacuum by the complete pickguard is cooler and slamming.

Actually worn brown is rather share in current production, not necessarily a good comparison.
This pelham blue is very nice to play the mcaniques lightweight and rather heavy body gives it a perfect balance.

Technically, the microphones are mountains on connector, and volumes are a play with connector and split, all the rest as soud. It is seen, so we did a signal interruption (my Gigi lp studio has three more). Also it's easy to speak, I had to reverse the phases microphones for good reels in split mode and it was a breeze without soldering iron or anything.

SONORITS

This is where the difference with 400WB sg is the sharpest, the microphones are much more aggressive rock and this is what is expected of a sg and no need to change all that they are rsistants to feedback.
Their tone is pretty cool, with a nice liss (the grain is fine), and they are also effective in clean (not serious drool) that distortion (they do well the amp). In simple mode is nice, especially the neck pickup that allows the game "pneumatic" that hits overdrive blues.
In short nothing do with smokey jazz pickups sister!

Only trslger BMOL totally unjustified given the price, single mode coil pickups together do not cancel background noise ...


NOTICE GLOBAL

Well made three months rather use frquent (Idale shape to play vautr on the couch!), And I love it.
For the ridiculous difference compared to the standard 400 no hsiter is downright offered (a pickguard costing 39, 18 ... and a pushpull are 2!) Especially as the microphones are very good in the sg mind.

At this level of realization, we can really ask the question: why take the amricaine?

Never mind the grumpy, given the quality and price offers I can not put the maximum score everywhere.

China of course, splendid color lake placid blue kind but greenish tint, mine has a white pearl pickguard wow.
Gloss over, quite thick, zero defects.
Alnico pickups and split, standard panel with push-pull on volumes.

22 frets, vintage tuning machines BUT that hold the guitar in tune well.
Very well finished, very good neck, ditto frets, what more can we ask for?

Compared to the SG400 worn brown, here for you 35 euros more: coil split and more powerful pickups, volume push-pull, stop and tail is equipped with anti-drop rods. In addition, this is a very limited edition design.

UTILIZATION

Always compared to 400 wb, the handle has the same profile, but the paint is much thicker so it is larger in the leg.
The pelham blue is much heavier and colder to the touch. The handle is slower than the wb, varnishes oblige.
The sound is different from the vacuum by the complete pickguard is cooler and slamming.

In fact, the brown is pretty worn separately in current production, not necessarily a good comparison.
This pelham blue is very nice to play, lightweight mechanical and heavy body rather give it a perfect balance.

Technically, the microphones are mounted connector, and volumes are a part with connector and split, everything else being welded. It is seen, therefore has an interrupt signal (Gigi my <a rel="nofollow" href="/lp-shaped-guitar/gibson/les-paul-series-les-paul-studio-ebony-w-gold-hardware/?utm_source=audiofanzine&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=netting&utm_content=product&utm_term=LP+Studio" target="_blank">lp studio</a> has three more). Moreover, it is easy to speak, I can reverse the phases mics for good coils in split mode and it was a breeze without soldering or anything.

SOUNDS

It is here that the difference with the sg 400wb is the clearest, the microphones are much more aggressive and rock is what you expect from a sg and no need to change as they are resistant to feedback.
Their tone is pretty cool, with a nice smoothness (the grain is fine), and they are also effective in clean (not drool not serious) than distal (they do well the amp). In simple mode is nice, especially the microphone that allows serious game "tire" which fly blues overdrive.
Anyway nothing to do with the microphones smokey-jazz of his sister!

Light Coats only very flat, totally unjustified given the price, single coil mode the microphones do not cancel all the noise ...

OVERALL OPINION

Well, it's been three months, rather frequent use (ideal shape to play sprawled on the couch!), And I adore.
Ridiculous for the difference compared to the 400 standard is no hesitation it's downright offered (a pickguard costing 39, a pushpull 18 ... and there are 2!) All the microphones are well in sg mind.

At this level of achievement, you can really ask the question: why take the U.S.?

Too bad for the grumpy, given the quality offered and the price I can not put the note max everywhere.
