This guitar is Epiphone's version of Gibson's SG design, which came out in 1960-61. The Epi has a thicker finish than the old Gibson, being a polyurethane coat instead of a nitrocellulose, and the neck has a different feel, as well as a different heel on the back. These are not bad things - the poly finish will be more durable, and the price point suggests that more kids will be playing these. Kids need a durable guitar, as they can be a bit clumsy with taking care of them. And the neck heel and feel seem a bit more robust as well, so this is a plus. The guitar plays easily enough, and with the tuneamatic bridge, it is very easy to setup with good action.


The G-400 sounds nice, like an older SG, but with a bit less bite and smoothness from the different pickup settings. Of course, I'm comparing these Epi pickups to original T-Top Gibson humbuckers, so the comparison is not exactly fair - those original Gibson pickups were sublime. But these Epiphone humbuckers do the job very convincingly and admirably. Nearly any genre - rock, blues, metal, even jazz - they all can be represented well with these pickups.


For the price, this guitar is a great deal. Anyone picking this for a first, second, or backup guitar will not be disappointed. 9 out of 10 overall.

I'll keep it simple because everything has been said about this best seller. I changed the pickups for u grader because of origin, the microphones are light and drafts, I put the GFS and I saw the best definition of sound.


handle very nice, great accessibility, as the short scale Gibson, great ergonomics, light guitar, well done, its very easy to obtain.


ideal for rock, blues great big, muscled in an amp.


I sold a Gibson SG, the more pleasure, and frankly, the Gibson is worth the price difference. However, it remains a good guitar I do not regret having purchased. (She is very beautiful and more)
