A classic SG now with Alnico Classic PRO pickups and coil-tapping! Epiphone honors the historic SG, one of the most original designs in rock, with the G-400 PRO, which now features Alnico Classic PRO pickups and push/pull coil-tapping. The original SG not only rivaled guitars of its own era for sonic variety but also proved to be a sign of things to come. Scores of rock, hard rock and metal guitarists embraced the original SG and made it a classic. Now, the G-400 PRO gives you the sound and look of a real SG without the vintage price tag and with the added tonal variety that you've come to expect from Epiphone.

The SG Story: When the SG, or "Solid Guitar," was introduced in 1961 as a replacement for the Les Paul Standard, it was called the "fretless wonder" for its low frets and fast action. The twin horn cutaway design was like nothing on the market and its light but balanced weight made it the perfect guitar for stage and studio work. Later '60s models introduced the SG with humbucker pickups, and since then, the SG has became the go-to guitar for artists like The Who's Pete Townshend, Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC's Angus Young, Eric Clapton and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band.

Built for Classic SG Performance: The G-400 PRO is inspired by the late '60s era SGs, both a player's and collector's favorite, and uses the same dimensions and build techniques as vintage SGs made in the Kalamazoo, Michigan, factory during that classic era. The solid, tone-rich mahogany carved body gives the guitar a balanced feel on stage and in the studio (unlike cheap imitations that tend to be neck-heavy). The new Wilkinson Vintage Classic tuners are also lighter weight which makes your G-400 PRO feel perfectly balanced on stage and in the studio. The SlimTaper "D" profile mahogany neck has a 24.75" scale with 24 frets and a 12" radius for incredible reach thanks to the SG's classic cutaway. And for that one-of-a-kind SG feel, the G-400 has a rosewood fingerboard with a 1.68" nut. The truss rod cover is the classic Kalamazoo bell shape with SG PRO in white.

Alnico Classic PRO Power: Epiphone always finds a way to make improvements on our classic designs and the G-400 PRO is no exception. Now featuring Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO 4-wire humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions, the G-400 PRO offers a tonal palette that far exceeds any other guitar of its kind. The Alnico Classic PROs feature Alnico V magnets for terrific humbucker sustain with a huge dynamic range that can go from clean to crunch at a touch. And now, the G-400 PRO features coil-tapping on both pickups via a push/pull control on the pickups' volume controls.

Epiphone Hardware You Can Trust: Epiphone leads the way in manufacturing great-sounding guitars for players of all levels and that goes for our great hardware, too. Epiphone provides quality, all-metal hardware on all its instruments including full-function volume and tone knobs using full-size 500K potentiometers matched with Epiphone's rugged, all-metal, 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance. The G-400 PRO features our famous LockTone bridge and Stopbar tailpiece which yields incredible sustain along with Wilkinson Vintage Classic 14:1 tuners for lifetime security. The G-400 PRO comes in classic Cherry (CH) or Ebony (EB) finish. Left-handed models are available in Cherry (CH).

I was in the market for a new electric guitar, and I was down to this SG and the Les Paul. The SG was not as heavy and not as deep as the Les Paul. I eventually chose the Les Paul, but, this would be my second choice. The next guitar I buy will buy this guitar. Awesome job Epiphone! Keep up the good work.

This guitar is amazing. I have owned it now for a couple months and it took my playing to the next level. Its comfortable to practice all day long and the scale length is perfect. I have an american strat and a jackson soloist but i prefer to play this guitar over the more expensive american made guitars. You will not regret buying this guitar.

Got it, oiled the fretboard, re-strung it, adjusted pickup height and rocked for two hours straight. The frets needed a slight dressing at this price range but very minor. Tuners are solid and guitar stays in tune. Pickups sound excellent and playability is great. Sustain and resonance are fantastic. Best $500 guitar on the market....great job Epiphone.
