    Stunningly detailed re-creation of the 3 pickup SG.

    Elegant and powerful, the classic three pickup SG lives on in new stunning detail — even down to the "Les Paul" script at the end of the rosewood fingerboard. This Limited Edition G-400 Custom with Maestro tremolo features three powerful Alnico Classic Humbucking pickups like the original but Epiphone has added even more flexibility with individual bridge, middle and neck volume controls to allow infinite blending combinations. Add to that gold hardware and the vintage Maestro tremolo and you've got a rock and roll machine that looks as good as it sounds.

    Features
    • Double cutaway solid mahogany body
    • Set mahogany neck
    • Slim-taper neck profile
    • Three alnico magnet humbuckers
    • 3 volume and 1 tone controls
    • 22 frets
    • Rosewood fretboard

    Order today and get ready to rock.

    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.

    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!

    Above average for the price, but...

    By TeleSGCombonator

    from New Jersey

    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.

    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.

    can't believe it

    By Drplaidtalkboxes

    from Waterloo Township, WI

    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.

    LOVE IT ?!

    By MetalMan13

    from Newfoundland

    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

    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!!

    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.
