This edition of the prized 1962 Gibson SG boasts the power and merciless sustain you expect to shake you all night long. It's constructed from a Mahogany neck set into a Mahogany body with twin Alnico Classic Humbucker pickups. With the addition of a faded finish you can have vintage looks without the vintage pricetag.
Every serious guitar player wants an SG, and here's a real one that sounds as good as it looks. Epiphone's G-400 has been one of the best-selling set-neck guitars in the world for years and perhaps the most famous version of the guitar that for seven years in the 1960's, actually replaced the Les Paul body shape! The G-400 from Epiphone is truly the SG that you think of when you think "SG".
Put on your short pants and prepare yourself to reach all 22 frets on this carved SG Mahogany body with a hand-fitted and glued-in Slim-Taper(TM) Mahogany neck and a smooth Rosewood fingerboard. At the heart of this SG's classic rock tone is a pair of high-output Alnico Classic (neck) and Alnico Classic Plus (bridge) Humbuckers, each with separate volume and tone controls that feature full-size 500K potentiometers matched with Epiphone's rugged all-metal 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-life and rock-solid performance. Add Epiphone's exclusive LockTone(TM) Tune-o-matic bridge and Stop-bar tailpiece and you've got even more devilish sustain! For ultimate tuning stability and accuracy the G-400 features superior Grover machine heads and is available in Ebony finish or the iconic Cherry finish. It also comes in a Left-handed model in Cherry finish.
