EPIPHONE SG G400

This Epiphone G-400 is truly one of the best values in the guitar industry. 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".

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 of a Mahogany neck set to a Mahogany body with twin Alnico Classic Humbucker pickups.

Built for Classic SG Performance: 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™ 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™ 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.

Backed By The Folks Who Invented SG Tone: The Epiphone G-400 guitar comes with the famous Epiphone Lifetime Limited Warranty, featuring Gibson 24/7/360 Customer Service and Support and warrants the instrument against defects in materials or workmanship. Play one today at your favorite Authorized Epiphone Dealer.
