A looker version of the classic SG!
The SG is a classic rocker, and the new Epiphone G-400 Deluxe Electric Guitar version adds gold hardware and a flamed maple top to create a guitar that has a superstar look on stage. All the other G-400 features remain, including the Alnico V humbuckers, tune-o-matic bridge, an all-mahogany back for maximum sustain and gutsy tone. Its ultrafast, slim-tapered set neck allows blistering leads. Awesome Transparent Red finish. Limited lifetime warranty.

This guitar is unbelievable. The gold hardware really is a thing of beauty in person. The humbuckers sound like a million bucks and this is an all around great guitar
I've been a machinist and woodworker for over 20 years and I can tell you that the fit and finish of this guitar is exceptional. The photos simply do not do it justice. I'm a beginning guitarist so am not as qualified as others to comment on the tone of this guitar, but it sounds very nice to me. It produces a nice variety of tones by altering between the pickups and tone controls so I've been able to produce the tones I wanted easily. None of the product descriptions say it but it has genuine Grover tuners too. To sum it up, this is a beautiful "Limited Edition Custom Shop" Epiphone and I highly recommend it. Buy one before they're all gone!
Bought this guitar as a blem, looks like something touched the finish by the top of the horn while still wet. No biggie, its hard to see and I saved quite a bit. Gold hardware is beautiful, and it plays fast, much different then my fenders and jacksons. These do need setup after buying, had some string buzzing and a couple of sour frets, but now sounds great. The trans red finish looks cool. If you love AC/DC then this is the guitar for you! No need to pay more for a Epi SG!
I bought this guitar in the trans blue finish a couple months ago and it is amazing. The pickups are a little weaker than those of a gibson but get the job done. I am very satisfied with it.
I hooked this thing up to my Vox Valvetronix AD15VT and it's awesome, didn't play very well out of the box though. Do a set-up and you should be fine. This is THE GUITAR to buy within this price range. The back of the headstock says Epiphone Custom Shop Limited Edition. It looks and feels great in your hands. Buy this guitar today...
I just recently got this guitar and it is one of the best things that ever happened to me. The tone is amazing except I might replace the pickups. But all together it is a awesome guitar.
I bought this guitar a few weeks ago,and after taking it home,I noticed that there was some fret buzz along the upper registers of the neck.After doing a quick truss rod and string height adjustment,I found that I have a guitar that is worthy of the Epiphone name.I cannot put this guitar down at all.It sounds that good.The grover tuners ensure that this'll stay in tune,and the Block inlays,along with the Cherry Red finish,give it a touch of class.This guitar is equally adept for both blues & classic rock,which is what I play in my band.Although,it does pretty well in the Metal category also.I would definately put this up against a Gibson.It is a keeper,along with my sunburst Fender Standard 2006 Strat.Thank You Epiphone for putting out a quality instrument that won't put a major dent in your wallet.
I bought a 2002 G-400 for my first real guitar, and it was the right thing to do. The tone is great, very malleable to any kind of sound. After a couple months of playing it, I hot-rodded the pickups with S-Duncans and replaced the bridge, and it sounds better than any Gibson SG. The only thing is that it isn't as flashy as the Gibson version, the G400 lacks bindings and any elaborate pearl inlays. Personally, I like the stripped down version. I can't say enough good things about this guitar. I'm replacing the bridge pickup with a fatter jazz one for a jazz guitar class I'm taking next year. It's that versatile.
