Love at first note

By EpiphoneG400

from Brookfield, CT

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.

Superb For The Money

By Chris-F6cDg

from Philadelphia

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.

What we've all been waiting for

By Timma

from Barnstable, MA

See all my reviews

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.

The Best Sg Epiphone can offer!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

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.

Best bang for your buck

By Baker-mPyhk

from WV

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.

Holy Macheral

By Me-fgpTE

from CA

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.

Love this guitar

By pooptime45

from Fairway, KS

See all my reviews

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.

Well made but needs some work.


from Texas

See all my reviews

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.

Best Guitar I Have

By Anonymous-6WjA0

from West Jefferson, OH

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.


Awesome Axe

By Eddie

from Ventura

I've had this guitar for 12 years now and still love it. This guitar nails the Derek Trucks sound and is so easy to play. Love the pick ups. When I am at a loss for inspiration I will switch from my Strat or tele to my sg and find a new groove, love it! I did the intonation and set up myself . Great tone.

It's a beauty

By Fromer11

from Portland, Oregon

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.


The SG you've been waiting for

By Brian-w-eG3

from Chicopee, MA

I got this guitar a few days ago and let me tell you that it is worth every cent. From the cherry finish to the shinny Maestro Tremolo, this guitar makes you feel like a real rocker. I own a g-350 and there is no comparison. This SG brings the look, feel, and sound of all the great classic rockers. It is also great for the metal players as well. I definitely recommend buying one, you won't regret it.



By JLuu

from Bethlehem, PA

First of all it took me forever to find this guitar where it was in stock. All my patience was well worth it. I think I got the only one available at this time. This guitar is beautiful. It has great sound and features. The trem on it makes it a better buy than a standard g-400. I would definitely recommend this guitar!


Pickups Sound


from Puerto Rico

SG's are very interesting guitar, in my opinion I love them more than les pauls, There are a lot of advantages in this guitar. There are a lot of les Pauls taste but in SG's are a few of taste and variety. Thank God this SG Beauty have more attention building them with a Vibrola. Congratulations to Epi folks making true deram guitars in a better price.


an sg that cant be beat

By angus young owns life

from middlebury ct

From what i've heard, this guitar is great. The pickups are a step up from the standard g-400. It's got a beautiful cherry red finish where the wood grain is actualy somewhat visible, making this guitar look like a rockin classic straight off the rack, yet the wood-grain semi finish makes it look like a cherished axe that your dad played as a kid in a garage band. Plus its got a maestro, and who doesnt like that? It gives you so much control over your sound, and is a great quality effect. Your getting much more expensive parts for the same price as a stock epi g-400. and its got that nifty truss rod cover just above the nut prominently displaying the letters SG, so you'll never forget that your wielding the ultimate ltd edition axe, born from a Les Paul, and it's ready to stand up along with those about to rock!


It cries, it sings, it snarls, it kicks.

By Timmah1231

from Short Hills, NJ

See all my reviews

After sitting in the box for three months, Christmas came and with it came my Epiphone 1965 SG. Right out of the box, the action was perfect and the beautiful red wood grain made me shiver. Even through a 15-watt Fender amp, this guitar sings. It can have a sharp, barky scream on Treble, and a bluesy, chill-out tone on rhythm. It took a few days to get adjusted to the feel and weight (coming from a Squier Stratocaster), but now I feel as if it's been my guitar for years. I don't use tremolo that much, but the Maestro hardware had me doing plenty of tricks for quite a while. A solid value on the Solid Guitar. 'Nuff said. Keep it clean!


I prety much love it

By Great-lWR_f

from US

I have been playing in a grage band for awhile now, and I love how this guitar feels and sounds. Everyone in the band noticed it too how it sounded and they thought it was much better too. The vibrato is very nice too.... This is one affordable beautiful guitar and I'm sorry if you didn't buy one in time.


Great Axe

By Ofdwolf

from Callaway, MD

I bought it for the looks and wasn't disappointed it is a beautiful guitar. I wasn't expecting much from the sound and planned on replacing the electronic but I was extremely suprized when I plugged it in for the for the first time. It sounds better than my faded SG. It plays a nice clean tone and is awesome with overdrive.


Hard to put this guitar down

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I recently purchased this guitar and couldn't be happier. I owned the same exact gibson model back in the 70's, and find it hard to find anything wrong with the Epihone version. The one minor detail that I wish Epihone had included was binding on the neck. But after playing this guitar for a little while, you don't even notice it.I've been alternately using it through a Fender Hot Rod Deville, and a Marshall JCM 800 stack. The sound is awesome, clean or with distortion.

This guitar is great for doing ac/dc covers. The master tremolo is good but it creates tuning trouble. Overall this guitar sounds amazing for all styles of music.
