"Epiphone SG400"

Epiphone G-400Published on 09/19/07 at 15:00
I started playing in the late 1960's with various blues bands, and although I don't make a living from music, but I still play blues lead occasionally. These days I find my musical listening divided between old Blues and classical. I don't have much time for new rock bands; rock is the music of my generation and I can't be bothered with the weak imitations perpetrated by current children. They should invent a musical genre of their own. They are so devoid of ideas that most "new" music seems to be based on a Bonham drum beat.

I bought my Epiphone in London's Charing Cross Road - guitar heaven - for just under £250. Prices seemed to be quite variable in the various shops, and the option......

I started playing in the late 1960's with various blues bands, and although I don't make a living from music, but I still play blues lead occasionally.

They should invent a musical genre of their own. They are so devoid of ideas that most "new" music seems to be based on a Bonham drum beat.

I bought my Epiphone in London's Charing Cross Road - guitar heaven - for just under £250. Prices seemed to be quite variable in the various shops, and the option of Epiphone and Gibson pickups seemed to be the main determining factor. I chose the cheaper Epiphone option - my reasons follow later.

I love the finish of this guitar. It is vastly superior to a current Gibson SG. Epiphone still seem to care, while Gibson have become arrogant. The machine heads operate very smoothly, and the nut has an internal finish that allows you to tune down to a note almost as reliably as up.

I had to do quite a lot of adjustment to the neck when I got the guitar, particularly the truss rod. Relief actually went the wrong way! And the pickups were a disaster (but I knew that), but they were very quickly replaced by a pair of Seymour Duncans and I now have a sound far better than a standard Gibson.

My pickup choice was the SH2 Jazz at the neck and SH1 59 at the bridge. Between them they provide a huge range of tone, and never sound less than brilliant.

Construction is solid. Everything just fits together so well and it stays in perfect tune for days on end.

If you want a Gibson SG, think again. Buy the Epiphone, change the pickups and enjoy a vastly better guitar. Then buy a nice amp and a second guitar with the savings.

"Epiphone G-400"

Epiphone G-400Published on 04/14/06 at 15:00
I mostly play rockin all it's forms. I'm not in a band but I jam with a lot of different people.

I bought this guitar from music123.com for $350 because I needed a better guitar than the beginner guitar that I had.

It plays wonderfully. I can't really tell a difference between this guitar and the gibsons. It's really light which is good if your playing for long periods of time. It also sounds wonderful through an amp.

Since the guitar is so light the weight of the headstock causes the neck to point down whenever you let go of the neck, so that's pretty annoying. The major problem eith this guitar is the input jack is right on the front of the body and it's really weak right there. My......

The major problem eith this guitar is the input jack is right on the front of the body and it's really weak right there. My friend was playing it and he stepped on the cable and jarred the guitar and it cracked the guitar and it has become so bad now that I have to buy a new guitar.

It seems to be pretty good except for the problem I mentioned above.

I wouldn't risk buying this guitar if I were you. I would reccomend saving up a little extra money and buying a les paul. Les Pauls are a lot sturdier.

"Epiphone SG Mahogany"

Epiphone G-400Published on 10/05/04 at 15:00
I recieved this guitar at a place called guitar center in Arizona. I payed about four hundred (400) dollars for this item.

I like the SG because of the finger room at the bottom to reach the higher frets easier. I also like the trapazoid frets and that the guitar is really light.

i think that its a good guitar all in all and there isn't anything i can think of off the top of my head that i dont liek about it.

It is mad eof two peices adn is alot like the gibson form of it only epiphone.

I like the guitar.

"Epiphone G-400"

Epiphone G-400Published on 10/01/04 at 15:00
I bought this slice of heaven on ebay one night while cruising the net. I had been looking for a new guitar and had played one of these beauties, so when I saw it I just had to have it. It cost me $400 Australian.

Everything! Absolutely everything. The set in neck is a slam for rocking out those big solo's, fast or slow it does them all! The tuning on this guitar is excellent, I've never had a guitar that stayed in tune for so long(3-4 days!). The action on this guitar is excellent, it makes me forget that it isn't a real Gibson when I play it. The tonal quality of this guitar is excellent producing a wonderful phat sound, from distortion to clean it all works great. The Gibson......

The tonal quality of this guitar is excellent producing a wonderful phat sound, from distortion to clean it all works great. The Gibson humbuckers are the best but what can you expect? They are Gibson after all.

The guitar apart from all its shine is nigh on the heavy side, but this can be solved with a comfortable strap.

The quality seems good. I've had no trouble whatsoever with the pickup selector, and the frets seem to have a long life in them!

For the price this guitar is probably the best buy you will find anywhere, whether you're a rocker or a heavy meatal player or a punk player it all works great. It seems quite similar in sound to the Gibson but with i quarter the price its a must buy!!!
