  • Very Pleased

    As reviewed by Bryan Songy on 4/23/2014

    Let me start with 2 points: 1) I am not the most experienced guitar player. 2) I will not even consider detracting from this guitars rating based on 'neck dive'...IT IS A SG, thus it neck dives. Get a suede lined strap, or counter weighted strap, but get over it or get something else...period. That said. This is a great guitar for the money. For being chinese built, the quality control is pretty damned good. This is a neck through body and not a bolt-on, making the quality comparable to the lower priced gibsons. Its overall length is longer than the Junior models. love the push-pull volume knobs for coil-splitting add a huge range of tones. Hits highs that aren't quite the twang of a Tele or Strat, but sparklier than most all dual humbucking pick-up guitars. All mahogany construction (no basswood here folks) resonates well, even unplugged it tends to 'sing' (where anyone who has owned a cheaper basswood with its thick ass paint knows how flat the sound can be)The low action, the hardware, the everything of this guitar is very nice. I do not gig, so I cannot speak to that, but lots of constant hard playing and she holds her tune very well. I travel and bring another of my guitars with me for that, so I don't have this one damaged. After 2 weeks when I get home she is right in tune. My only complaint is the position of the volume knobs to the strings and how close together they are, but that is a personal issue and I knew what I was getting into (they have been the same since 1964 for crying out loud). If you want a great guitar, but like me can't drop the 'gibson money' this is where I would go (and have obviously).

  • Best guitar I've ever owned

    As reviewed by Justin on 1/22/2015

    If I could give this thing 20 stars I would! I've had mine for almost twenty years and played countless shows with it. It survived me being a teenager in punk and hardcore bands and eventually it succumbed to the abuse but not after many, many long shows and years of awesome sound. I would buy another one in a heartbeat without question. It is neck heavy but it's an SG, what do you want! Killer sustain, tons of bottom end for heavier stuff but versatile enough to play reggae as well. It was my go-to guitar. The only fault I ever found in this guitar was that the plastic piece on the toggle switch was brittle and cracked. I replaced it with a gibson piece and never had another issue with it. If you're thinking about buying this and don't want to sound like a strat or a tele do yourself a favor and... BUY THIS GUITAR!

  • I Love This Guitar

    As reviewed by DONALD MARLEY on 4/22/2014

    Wow! Incredible sustain, light weight but with great balance (due to the lighter Wilkinson tuning machines), great pickups (and especially versitile with coil taps), great all-fret access (with double cut-aways and set neck which is trimmer than bolts), perfect setup right out of the box (all I had to do was tweak the tuning a bit), and unlike most electrics it even sounds pretty good without plugging it in. Perfect? ... well almost. The one problem I had was that the sustain is so good that the harmonics in strings 5 and 6 ring when resonant notes in the other strings are played. This isn't a problem when playing 6-string chords or when playing strings 5 and 6, but playing a melody on strings 1 - 4 causes ringing in the open strings 5 and 6 unless they are muted. This can be done (with some practice) with your right thumb if you fingerpick, but is more difficult if you use a pick. The left thumb can damp string 6, but this can be cumbersome. ONE SOLUTION: What has worked for me so far is to take a rubber band (not a thin one), cut it open, wrap it once around string 6, pull it through to string 5 and again wrap once, then pull it further until the lengths are equal on each end. Pull the string 5 end over the top of the nut at string 4 and pull the string 6 end around the back of the neck. Tie the ends together behind the neck so that there is enough tension in the rubber band to dampen the harmonics in strings 5 and 6. If the loops around the strings are positioned too close to the nut then the harminics won't be damped. If the rubber band is too thick or too tight then the damping is too severe. If the loops are too near to fret # 1 then the rubber band gets in the way of playing note F on string 6 and B-flat/A# on string 5. About 1/2-way to fret #1 works perfect for me. Damping works when the string is open, but the string plays normally when fretted on any fret. When picking the open damped string I can hear the damping effect when the guitar is not plugged in, but when the sound is generated electrically by the pickups the tone of the damped open string still sounds good. The extended ringing of the harminics (beyond when the primary frequency fades out) is reduced enough to no longer bother me. Now it plays and sounds great. BTW, the cherry finish looks famtastic and plays well on the neck. [This review is for the Epiphone G-400 SG PRO (set neck) model.]
