A true-to-the-specs mid-'60s SG for a screaming low price!
The Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 Electric Guitar is a Gibson-authorized version of their great '66 SG with a solid mahogany body and slim-tapered set mahogany neck. Some subtle-yet-significant differences make this one special. First, the body is has an exclusive ebony finish. And instead of the small, lower horn-only pickguard, it has the full-body pickguard so there aren't any pickup mounting rings around the high-output alnico humbuckers (the '66 SG had P-90 pickups). Separate volume and tone controls for each of the guitar pickups give you complete control of your sound. The LockTone stopbar tailpiece and Tune-O-Matic bridge provide great sustain and tone, and make string changing easier. The deep double cutaway lets you reach all 22 frets with ease. Limited lifetime warranty.

I love this guitar, I bought this from my friend for 100 and it was only slightly used. the neck is very responsive and the action has a great feel.
I must say that I am stunned at how good this guitar sounds. I'm a Les Paul man and while I don't see myself ever changing that fact I can recommend this nice little axe for those of you who aren't so "pro-paul". The pickups on this baby are the standard Epiphone-made alnico classics. The bridge pup produces a nice and rich rock n' roll sound with that sweet heavy metal growl and great harmonic response. flip the switch up to the neck pickup and it cranks out that smooth, soulful creamcheese tone perfect for sweeping arpeggios or tasty clean solos.The weight is nice and light for the younger player or anyone who wants to play a long show without putting there back out but still getting that Les Paul-ish tone.That said I still prefer my Paul to this axe but only because I love the weight and feel of the LPs and the sustain is a bit better on them. That said this axe is a great runner-up and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to rock on a budget.
I just got this guitar yesterday and I still can't believe it. For this price, this guitar is getting away with murder. The pictures don't do it justice. The ebony finish is beautiful and it plays like a dream. The pickups are amazing right out of the box and the tuners will stay in forever. The high E string was broken in shipping but strings are cheap and I didn't like the strings it comes with anyway so it was fine. I also lowered the action to fit my preference because Epiphones and Gibsons are usually set up a little too high for my liking. My friend who paid $200 more for an Epi Les Paul prefers my guitar to his now, mostly because you get the same sound with less weight. This guitar is a little neck-heavy but that's to be expected in an SG and it's not like you couldn't get used to it. Overall, I would recommend this guitar to anybody, whether it's the newest beginner or the oldest pro. It has something to please everyone.
This guitar is magnificent! I have it in Heritage Cherry and the finish is beautiful. It sounds good right out of the box. It is worth double what it is, you will not be disappointed. The only issue mine had was some buzzing when you play the b string, 2nd fret. *****!
I got this guitar about six months ago as a Christmas present and have enjoyed it every day since then! This guitar is unbelievable for the price! The body is so light, and the action is very low and smooth right out of the box. The pickups and tuners are good as well. While the guitar is playable right out of the box, you will definitely want to have it set up to achieve the best sound. After working on the guitar a little bit, you could definitely have a Gibson sounding and Gibson quality instrument, and at this price, you should definitely buy one today!! Way to go Epiphone!!
i have been playing a number of unique guitars latley but non have impreesed me as much as this SG, i love it. it has the nicest tone i've ever heard come out of a solid body guitar. highly recommended.
Just got the guitar in yesterday 2 hours before I had to go to work and I almost couldnt bring myself to put it down. This guitar has amazin sound, I got it plugged it in and it took me about 30 seconds to tune it, it was that close already, and away I went playing, clean she sounds awesome, and she has a really nice distorted sound, only guitar that I have played that I like more is my friends 60's Reissue Gibson Les Paul, and this guitar is almost as nice soundin as it, if ur lookin for something decently affordable that plays like a champ, this is it.
I bought this guitar 2 years ago and its the best guitar for the price i have bought. The finish is flawless and has a pretty smooth neck. the guitar played great with a little adjustment to the bridge( gotta have that low action) and the rone is epic. I preffer EMGS more so i swapped the .pups and threw on straplocks. I own 14 guitars( schechtors, gibson, fender, ibanez, esp) and this guitar was a permenant spot in my collection.
