I bought this guitar on sale, best choice I have ever made. Straight out of the box, you plug it in, tune it up, sounds great. This is THE guitar for people like me who can't spend much, but know a good tone when they hear one. You can play anything on this. I've found myself playing the Doom theme and Twenty One Pilots music in the same jam session. Quite versatile. The guitar itself is a work of art, always has been. the finish was flawless and it still is. Overall, if you're a beginner and like the look of the guitar, it won't be a waste buying it. You can't go wrong with THIS guitar for $250.

Hands down coming from a guy who played for 20 years this has to be one of the worst guitars you'll ever buy. It's extremely over priced considering what the going rate of one of these new is. I owned one for about four months and it was a dust magnet. Being a big black sabbath fan or not I had to get rid of this. the guitar pretty much falls apart by itself , the tuners will not stay in tune for more than 5 days of light use. Say an hour or so of play a day. This means you'll go through a lot of strings or go through a lot of batteries in your tuner. The fret work is atrocious. Out of the box unless you take one to a guitar tech and pay around the guitars asking price to get the frets leveled it will buzz crazy and a setup won't fix this issue. This means no low string action to rip those ultimate guitar tabbed solos. the parts are the cheapest they could use. If epiphone could have used a plastic neck or body they would have. The wiring on SG guitars I find to be out dated on say the sg-400 but this isn't horrible. The pickups even if you put them right up to the strings as height matters you'll still hate the sound of the guitar through the amp. So by the time you put a new set of pickups in (350-ish) , new this and that to address the issues..congratulations you either bought an SG-400 or Gibson sg standard or gibson sg special. Unlike the gibson you could have bought you just put a race car engine in a cheap import car. if you like the SG shape and want a quality sg I always tell people about the LTD viper guitars as they are close to the sg shape the made in Korea ones especially, perhaps a used korean/japanese Schecter, Jackson , dean, bc rich warlock or agile. I'll take anything over an sg special.

I bought this guitar for my brother. I spent a day with it before he got it and i fell in love with it. In fact the only negative thing i have to say is that the fret ends were a bit sharp, but not so bad that it hurt when sliding your hand up and down the neck. Out of the box the neck relief measured at 0.010", which is right where you want to be for a 12" radius neck. The action was already pretty good, but i lowered it at the bridge just a bit more for more comfortable soloing. I changed the strings and adjusted the intonation (only a few quick adjustments needed). After that she played so comfortably, i lost track of time. Pickups are decent, not bad at all for an import budget guitar. I got some good classic rock tones, and metal tones depending on which pedals i was using. definitely versatile (although i didn't get much of a bluesy tone, didn't spend too much time trying either though). You could buy an upgraded set and still not have spent too much. Tuning was very stable too! out of the box i tuned it up, played a bit, left it alone for a couple hours, and when i came back she was still in tune. Overall i was very happy with this guitar. If you're willing to put a little bit of work into it to set it up, or are willing to pay a professional to set it up, it's more than worth the price.

this is a good guitar for people who like to customise their guitar. i see this guitar as a blank canvis ready to become your work of art. it already starts you off by throwing in the killswitch giving you the ability to make a tremillo sound when you need it. it has an amising look, is a strong guitar when accedently dropped, and light to carry. this guitar has alot of charter when you use effect pedals too. i use this guitar for band practices and is the guitar i use to make my own music with. this guitar covers just about all genres of music from acoustic to death metal. personally i use it for grunge and punk. this guitar is great to start with and great for people who cant afford a 400$ guitar. this is my second guitar ( my first was a les paul jr) and works great with all guitar players. defenitly, check it out.

I bought this as my first guitar and it was exceptional in all areas. Great value for the price. It lasted me 3 years before I bought a higher end guitar. strongly suggest for someone starting out.
