OVERVIEW

Powerful tones combined with legendary playability!

This Limited Edition Epiphone G-400 Electric Guitar may nail the look and feel of the original '62 SG, but with its array of EMG pickups it delivers thoroughly modern tones. Fitted to the solid mahogany body is an EMG 81 pickup at the bridge and an EMG 85 at the neck, the exact array used by rockers like Zakk Wylde. Separate volume and tone controls for each of the high-output humbuckers give you complete control of your sound. The set, slim-taper mahogany neck has a rosewood freboard with pearloid trapezoid inlays. The deep double-cutaway lets you reach all 22 frets with ease.

FEATURES
  • Double-cutaway solid mahogany body
  • Set mahogany neck
  • Slim-taper neck profile
  • EMG 81 at bridge/EMG 85 at neck
  • 2 volume and 2 tone controls
  • 22 frets
  • Rosewood fretboard

I've had this guitar for almost a year now and I love it! There's a couple of minor things on the guitar (paint dripped on the fretboard in some places and a few other problems) but other than the few minor cosmetic problems it is awesome. When I say cosmetic problems I am defiantly not saying this guitar is ugly, far from it! The sound also works very well with my music and I can't really complain, the rhythm sounds muddy to me but I generally leave it on treble or in between and it sounds awesome especially with distortion! This is definitely my favorite guitar and I haven't played another yet that beats or even matches it!

I can't believe Epiphone was serious when they made these guitars. Although it is a beautiful guitar, and the pickups are hot, the balance is unacceptable. I bought this guitar a couple of months ago to back up my Gibson Les Paul Custom, but the neck is so heavy relative to the rest of the guitar, that I have to concentrate on stage to hold the neck up, which takes away from being able to play well. If you play sitting down with the guitar on your lap, you'll be happy with this one, but if you play standing up, forget it.

Fret Buzz

By Solo Songwriter

from Georgia

See all my reviews

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition G-400 Electric Guitar with EMG Pickups:

I wanted so badly to like this guitar that I spent three days making every possible adjustment to get rid of the fret buzz. All my efforts unfortunately failed and I sent it back with a heavy heart.Plugged in the EMGs sounded great, and the controls for volume and tone were excellent...with enough volume you could even forget about the fret buzz.My Alvarez electric that I bought for $50 off a buddy of mine has about as low an action as you can ask for and not the fraction of fret buzz this thing had. Truly a shame.

Better then I thought it was!

By MudCatMike

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition G-400 Electric Guitar with EMG Pickups:

I bought this for the pick-ups and I'm not really into the whole gibson style thing. I'm more of an Ibanez type guy. I own a Ibanez rg with a new sustainer system but with weak pickups it plays great and everything but with this guitar it took things a whole other level. The clean sound the emg's put out put my ibanez to shame as far as tone. When I played comfortably numb I sounded just like David Gilmour when I played Bodom beach terror it was just as clean. It was amazing. But I still missed my sustainer and whammy bar. Otherwise this was a great chose.

Alpine White and EMGs!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition G-400 Electric Guitar with EMG Pickups:

I bought this online after playing some G-400s at the store. This is the perfect metal sound I like with the EMGs. Good weight w/fast neck. Had EMGs before and they are awesome. Nice crunch with the PM and easy NH. Sustains forever, not muddy. It even has a small latch for the battery for easy access. I'm upgrading to the Gibson TP-6 tailpiece for fine tuning. The alpine white is definitely different and well worth it. This will be a favorite for long time. No problems.

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition G-400 Electric Guitar with EMG Pickups:

Well I own a couple guitars some better than others, I own a 1989 westone corsair, but this thing is a BEAST! Its easaly one of the highest output guitars I have with the active emg pickups, the only downside to this guitar is that it takes a little bit of adjusting to make the action playable a couple turns of the truss rod and lowering the bridge did the trick with very minor fret buzz! Overall this guitar kicks butt for the price but the finish really stands out! its like heaven with HORNS!

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition G-400 Electric Guitar with EMG Pickups:

I Have been playing guitar for about 4 years. And i have played in all different types of music (Hardcore, Metal, Rock, Screamo) and by experience this guitar worked in every way for all of the kinds of music. Also I have owned many of different brands of guitars, and the G-400 beats them all

Beautiful, rockin' guitar...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition G-400 Electric Guitar with EMG Pickups:

My friend sent me a link to this guitar, because I had just installed new EMGs in my old Epiphone G310, and I knew I had to have it. This by far beats any guitar I've played, better than most Gibson named. It's a beautiful Alpine White which is a color I've loved for a long time...the fretboard is smooth, action is perfect, the Grover tuners are tight, and the pickups howl. A couple things were a little sub-par: one of the tuneomatic bridge posts was threaded wrong and I had to replace that (actually, I went with replacing the whole thing with a "roller" saddle bridge which is awesome), and the pots for the volume and tone get scratchy very easy and the p-ups still make noise even when at zero (a pretty simple switchout if you're good with soldering). Other than that, this was a great impulse buy.

Fantastic Guitar

By Rockn2theBlues

from Peoria, Arizona

See all my reviews

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition G-400 Electric Guitar with EMG Pickups:

I've had this guitar for 4 months now and I like it better and better every time I play it. Overall this guitar is pretty light weight compared to others, like Strat?s. However, the neck is a little heavier than the body so you can't let go of the neck or the neck will drop as others have complained about. It's not a problem for me; I just make sure I don't let it fall into something. I'm always careful with my instruments anyway. This guitar not only looks great but the sound from the EMG's is just too good to explain. To me this far outweighs the neck being heavier than the body. No pun intended. The sustain you get from these pick ups without any pedals is just way too cool. When you use your pedals with it hang on tight because you're going for a ride.

the best guitar i've ever played

By alreadybeentaken7

from eastern kentucky

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition G-400 Electric Guitar with EMG Pickups:

this guitar is a complete steal at that price. it plays better than gibsons that cost twice the price! The pickups have to be the very best feature of this guitar, the 81 has all the output anyone should ever need. and the substain of 85 could ring for a whole minute with the amount of gain(no joke!) it plays as well as any other guitar i have owned or played and my sgs volume and tone pots didn't get scratchy.Definately a great guitar for the price

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition G-400 Electric Guitar with EMG Pickups:

Just the other day I was playing this guitar,and I realized that you don't have to have a Gibson to get a great sound.Just buy this guitar and you will play just like... Fred Mascherino. By the way if you don't know who he is look him up.
