OVERVIEW

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-taper set mahogany neck. Some subtle-yet-significant differences make this one special. Instead of the small, lower horn-only pickguard, it has the larger pickguard so there aren't any pickup mounting rings around the high-output Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers (the '66 SG had P-90 pickups).

Separate volume and tone controls for each of the pickups give you complete control of your sound and allows for a miriad of tones. The LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece provide more sustain and make string changing easier. The deep double-cutaway body lets you reach all 22 frets with ease. Case sold separately.

An all-mahogany body with Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers for Classic mid-60's SG tone.

FEATURES
  • Resonant solid mahogany body
  • super fast Slim-taper set-in mahogany neck
  • Versatile Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers with coil-split
  • Fully adjustable tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece
  • Wilkinson white Keystone style tuners
  • Case sold separately

When this Epiphone "Limited Edition" (1966) G-400 Pro guitar arrived it blew my mind right out of the box! The intonation and setup is near perfect ! Sounds great! The slim taper neck is a dream to play. Every bit as good as the original 1966 Gibson SG I used to own. The green tulip Wilkinson tuners are really NICE and neck inlays and overall craftsmanship is EXCELLENT ! This guitar has the "dual volume knob" coil taps which I really like. You pull the volume knob UP to get a single coil sound and push it DOWN to get the humbucker sound. This is a very good feature to get a variety of sounds with the Classic Alnico pickups. I have been playing this for a couple days now and it holds tuning very well. I've been playing this through a new Fender Mustang 1 amp and I can tell already that this guitar will be one of my main guitars for recording. This is one of the finest Epiphones I have ever owned and I'm so glad I bought it from Musicians Friend at a reduced price of [$].

Ordered the G-400 pro. Ordering was easy, delivery was fast. Finish was beautiful. I was more than pleased with the Pickups. Nice SG growl but the highs still cut through. No Fret Buzz anywhere on the neck. Good Volume Everything was great quality except for one careless defect. The housing for the peg on the G string that connects through the headstock to the machine heads in the back was not inserted properly into the headstock was not inserted properly. Instead of sitting flush against the headstock, it sticks up about 3/8" and is on a slight angle. It looks like it just wasn't pressed in properly. I kinda chuckled when I read a previous review where someone said that inspector 24 needs to have their eyes checked. This guitar was also inspected by #24. There is no way that anyone could miss this. One careless mistake while being built and an inspector that isn't doing the bare minimum of their job requirement turned this beautiful instrument into a warranty and return problem for me. It's too bad because this is a nice guitar.

            Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 PRO Electric Guitar:

            Looks beautiful, sounds amazing, and has that classic look. For the money you wont find anything quite so well rounded in terms of looks, feel, and sound. It even comes with the patented SG neckdive feature.

            The sound from this thing is wonderful for every tone from milky tube circuit breakup to hyper-saturated lead tones. Tends to sound a bit muddy on the clean channel, but the treble pickup's brightness helps add some life to the guitar's cleans.

            Only issue I've had so far is with the pickup selector switch. Sometimes when I select the treble pickup there is a distinct volume drop which can be remedied by toggling the selector a few times. Doesn't really bother me as it would be a simple fix.

            Used this guitar for a gig or two and lent it to a buddy of mine who gave it some more mileage. She's back in my hands now and still sounds and feels solid. Just a little less pretty now.

            Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 PRO Electric Guitar:

            Epiphone is a GIBSON subsidiary so the SG-400 PRO is basically built under close spec to the original with a few other electronic goodies added such as the tapping feature. Also the the tuners are very good as well. So you get a very good SG for a fraction of the price.
