Authentic 1965 vibe and sound with a limited edition G-400!
There's nothing cooler than wielding a limited-edition axe like the Epiphone Limited Edition 1965 G-400 with Maestro Tremolo. Now you don't have to be a rock star to own one. Each month of 2005 will see the release of a different, unique guitar that will only be made in limited numbers. While based on legendary past models, each instrument will be customized with special finishes, hardware, pickups, and other choice trimmings to make them genuine collectibles.
This Epi Limited Edition version of the very stylin' '65 SG captures the vibe with authority. It's got an authentic Maestro Tremolo fitted below the tailpiece, a fast and sleek set mahogany neck, and a thin, lightweight mahogany body just like the original. It's got smokin' hot Alnico V pickups with separate volume and tone controls and those famous deep cutaways that let you reach the upper frets with ease. It also has a rosewood fretboard with pearloid anvil inlays, chrome hardware, pearloid handle trem bar, and a 3-way pickup selector.

This guitar is amazing. I first saw it in the catalog and knew that I had to have it. On Christmas day I got the guitar. On christmas my cousin also got an SG. His is a Gibson SG Standard though. We play together all the time, and I hate to say it but this guitar looks, plays, and sounds better then the 2K Gibson model.
Bought this (now discontinued) guitar. Up against the VERY over-rated Gibson SG's, this guitar was far and away the winner. No kidding and I will stand by it. Been playing over 30 years and used to own a '69 Gibson SG and this guitar does it all and more. No use using the Maestro, however. Even back then, they were useless. Will knock your guitar right out of tune. But - if you are lucky enough to find one - get it!!. So many sweet spots and the harmonics jump out at you. No need to change pickups as this guitar has plenty of tone to spare unless you are a brainless metalhead who only goes for crunch like 99.9% of the guitar center patrons. Beautiful guitar.
I got this guitar and I couldn?t be happier with it. Well-built, beautiful finish and great tremolo. Pick-ups are ok, better then I expected but still nowhere near Gibson 57' classics. I highly suggest this guitar for anyone. What a deal.
I was waiting for a guitar like this and It's definitely worth the money. It sounds like Gibson, and looks like one too (except for headstock and tremelo engraving). I just got it 2 hours ago and I cant put it down. It's so easy to reach the top frets now unlike my old SG special. Unfortunately it doesn't come with a full body pickguard but it is beautiful. Im planning on buying a marshall MGFX and a Guv'Nor II pedal to get the full sound of this baby. Epiphone should definitley make more of these and should also make an Angus Young Signature model, that would be awsome. If you want a great sounding and looking guitar, and don't have a grand or more to get a Gibson, then get this one, you will be extremely satisfied.
I've had this guitar for around a week and I can't put it down I put better strings on it and put some angus young p/ups on and this guitar just screams. I've already played a few gigs with it and if anything happen to it you better believe I would find another.
Playing 30 years, have owned every guitar you can imagine, originals and copies. I am so impressed with this instrument, that I'm writing something down for once. Excellent build, action was perfect out of the bos, which never happens, sound great, looks great. Worth far more than the price compared to the 2k Gibson models, phooey on them, buy this and save.
This guitar has perfect combinations. I have too admit, my fender splattercasters pickups seem kind of lifeless and stale compared to this ones. But they are two different guitars for two different thing. This has that classic gibson sound from clean, crunch, and that ultimate blues sound. The pickup switch is good and the tremolo arm rocks. The only bad things was some parts looked kinda gluey (I've seen this on my epiphone acoustic) and the neck is kinda wide for my taste. Oh yeah and fingerprints kinda screw it up, but that can be cleaned.
This axe is more of a work of art than anything. Very sturdy and well made, I just haven't found the nitch on those weak pickups. Very quiet with no distortion and very noisy otherwise. You just want to get a good sound out of it since the guitar is so well made.
I got this guitar a few weeks ago, a day before it was discontinued. It is much better than my squier strat. It sounds nice even through a little 15 watt fender amp. It is one of the nicest guitars I've seen. Anyone who managed to get this limited edition custom shop before it was out of stock has in my opinion, one of the best epiphones money can buy. If you like Gibson SG's but dont have the money or you just dont think you are ready for one, get a G-400 and you won't regret it.
I just got this guitar about two weeks ago and it is amazing. The overall quality of the worksmanship is really good. I will admit the pickups arnt the best, but other then that this guitar is great with a sweet rich finish.
