I recently bought this guitar used, but it is basically new (2 months old). The main complaint is the tuning. The nut binds the strings and I also think the neck is a little thick. However, other than these minor problems, this guitar is pretty nice for the price. Of course, as with most guitars (even the "uptown" Gibson models), the bridge and the saddles need to be set up right out of the gate. Overall, just throw some better strings on it, file the nut and/or apply some graphite, get a technician to set the bridge and saddles properly, and you've got a high-end guitar. After the small adjustments (and getting used to the Dobro-like neck) the guitar is able to stay in tune perfectly with the gold plated Grovers. The humbuckers are able to produce a tone of warmth and also some nice lead/treble sounds when the middle pickup is turned down a lot (almost exactly like a Gibson). The individual volume knobs are an awesome part of this setup, yet there is only one tone knob(not a really bad thing, though). This axe literally came from history books and it can shred and wail for heavy metal, while also mellowing out on a clean channel. A great guitar all-around with some relatively cheap/minor adjustments.

LOVE IT ?!

By MetalMan13

from Newfoundland

See all my reviews

I bought this guitar in the heat of a moment. I walked in to buy a epiphone les paul special ( piece of crap btw) and walked out with this. No regrets,this guitar was love at first sight. I really love the tone of the guitar its a warm, ballsy, Gibson tone. The only thing I didn't like at first was that the guitars weight is not evenly distributed, the headstock was always trying to touch the floor, but after a few days holding the neck at all times become first nature. This guitar is a masterpiece, absolutely worth the money, and if i lost mine it have to get a new one. 4.5/5

beautiful Instrument

By Logan-bo_hX

from Patterson, GA

I received this guitar in the mail today after much anticipation. It is a beautiful instrument and the photos cannot do the guitar justice. It plays exceptionally well and I am thoroughly satisfied with the tonal versitility made possible by the three humbuckers. Just don't work the Maestro too hard or you'll fall out of tune. Also be sure to get yourself a good strap-locking apparatus, or else fall pray to the notorious SG nosedive.

By sg400customan

from Salinas, CA

Overall this is a great guitar however there are a few problems I encountered with it, one thing is that if the strings don?t sit in the saddle right it causes a very annoying buzzing. And the maestro is designed after the ones in the sixties where it does not bend back. If you try to pull it towards the bridge (which most maestros do) it back it makes a cracking noise. Overall this is a great guitar and is good for all styles.

G-400 Custom

By Teleman-AOR8E

from Irvine California

This is a solid guitar. This is my second Epiphone SG and I regret getting the same guitar, but I will be selling this one someday, but don't let that fool you. The maestro is a very nice addition to this guitar. I use the bridge pick up mostly, but the neck and middle pick ups are great with some delay. This guitar is also very beautiful as i said I am only selling this guitar because it has a lot of value to it!!

Unbelievable

By Blake-vU-rh

from Greenville, KY

I fell in love when I opened the case, simply because it was beautiful. Then I picked it up and played it. The neck is fat so its not for the shredding fast player, but my goodness, it was unbelievably smooth, I am in love. The best guitar I have ever owned, that's not saying too much as I haven't owned many, but to anyone looking I definitely recommend this guitar!

The best SG I Have Ever Payed

By S. Plissken

from Fresno Ca

The action on this guitar, without any adjustment, right out of the box, is the best I have ever played. The triple pick up design was a little cumbersome at first, but within the hour it felt better than my Gibson SG. A wonderful guitar thanks Epiphone!

This thing looks awesome, plays great, sounds great, i cant put it down, compared to my dads old electra westone dynasty, this thing is so so so so so much better. it actully stays in tune quite well. I saw a custom in the music store without the trem bar, and was an off white, and that one was like $ more, im glad i got this one.

No Regrets

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I couldn't find this one in any stores so against the advice of a respected fellow musician (and my own fears) I bought a guitar I had never played. I have No Regrets. Visually this guitar is beautiful...not without one or two of the tiniest flaws (one tiny bubble in the finish on the side and the nut was a lil scuffed) but if you are a bit OCD like me you will find a few on every guitar and I can totally live with those. As for the sound: People always bash stock pick-ups. I have a BC Rich upgraded with a pair of EMGs (81/85) and I wasn't expecting anything nearly as good. These are definately not as chunky but they are great in their own right, providing me with another axe with a differing sound, one that is still agressive but a little more refined than the higher output of EMGs. Also the 3 pick-up design provides some interesting tonal variations. And on a final note, I love the fretwork on this guitar, much better than any of my other axes, makes me play better and faster. This is the first epiphone I have bought and I was never really all that interested in owning one (hoped to some day afford a Gibson instead) but I am very happy about owning this one. No Regrets.

the ultimate workhorse

By EpiPlayer

from Mechanicsburg, PA

This is my guitarist in my bands, and he let me use it for a gig, let me tell you, it destroys my gibson SG standard. The finish is amazing, nearly flawless, and the gold fits perfectly with it. The action on this guitar was flawless. I was able to play all my lead parts without any trouble on this guitar. The three pickups gave me a versitile sound, and if you set the bridge or neck pickups to zero, and you can use the pickup selector as a killswitch. Overall i am thuroghly pleased with this guitar and am thinking of buying one

This guitar rocks!!!

By SGmaestroman

from Gillette, WY

See all my reviews

First off, and the main reason I got it, it has some serious looks. I was amazed at the photo it gives in here and when I pulled it out of the case, I was stunned. The actual beauty gave a sort of WOW factor. The gold gleamed. I plugged it into an amp (fender solid state) and rocked away. I usually don't like epi stock pickups, but this one is staying. I usually like to have a distortion pickup in the bridge, but this pickup is exactly what the doctor ordered. It has a bright attack and when distorted, gives a full sound that is far from muddy and messy. It makes every single note present and accounted for. As for the tremolo. I thought it would be mainly for looks. I tested it out, waiting for the unavoidable detune. It never came. I use it now and will use it frequently. Overall, a great buy. It isn't one that I plan to put on the shelf for a while. Good job epi.

Above average for the price, but...

By TeleSGCombonator

from New Jersey

See all my reviews

First, for the goods. Low price, truly beautiful guitar and hardware. its just absolutely beautiful to look at. The tremolo adds a cool look and something fun to mess w/ and new sounds for the classic SGOn the downside, the neck is pretty rough. It required a full set up from a guitar tech, as other buyers have done. When using the tremolo, it doesn't stay in tune very well. The humbuckers buzz a lot. I love the separate volume pots on most guitars, but a 0 on the volume knob does not fully bypass the pickup; if you are looking for that RATM-like sound killing effect from switching pickups, you'll find it isnt perfected on this guitar.I do not recommend this guitar unless you are accustomed to wide necks and heavier guitars. I'm selling mine, because I enjoy fenders much more, but if you know you're looking for a cheap, playable SG, especially for the visual specs, this guitar will do you just fine.

I made a comment when i first got the guitar, since then I have taken off the trem. bar, it now stays in tuen for weeks at a time.(and I thought it stayed in tune well whith the trem. bar) This was my first guitar with this type of bridge, it took me a while to figure out that you have to remove the strings to remove the trem bar. I just wanted to say that this is the guitar that makes all your friends want to learn to play.

Awesome Axe

By Killin the Vibe

from St. Louis, MO

I saw this guitar in a magazine and fell in love with it. As of yesterday I am now it's proud owner. Once you lower the action, oil the fretboard and use some string grease you are good to go. Kneck takes a little getting used to and the guitar's a little on the heavy side, after a while though you don't really notice. Sound of this instrument is superb for the price. You really do get more for your money with epiphone.

I got the black version without the whammy, guess there all gone now, beautiful finish and sounds awesome, my other guitars are getting lonely, lowered the action and adjusted pickups and plays great. Glad I got smart and ordered before they ran out.

WOW

By Boo/SG

from Dallas, TX

This guitar is the nicest thing I own right now. I love everything about it. The finish is emaculate, I thought the antique white would be an off white, but its actually a very beautiful, bright white. The gold is so shiny its like a mirror, although the tremolo isn't just for looks. The humbuckers w/ ind. volume really are great for finding a sound that is just right for a particular style. I love the pearloid. The fretboard is fast and smooth. there's nothing I found wrong with this guitar. If you are interested in this guitar, go ahead and make this purchase, you wont be disappointed. peace.
