An all-mahogany body with Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers for Classic mid-60's SG tone.

The Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 Electric Guitar is a Gibson-authorized version of their great '66 SG with a solid mahogany body and slim-taper set mahogany neck. Some subtle-yet-significant differences make this one special. Instead of the small, lower horn-only pickguard, it has the larger pickguard so there aren't any pickup mounting rings around the high-output Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers (the '66 SG had P-90 pickups).

Separate volume and tone controls for each of the pickups give you complete control of your sound and allows for a miriad of tones. The LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece provide more sustain and make string changing easier. The deep double-cutaway body lets you reach all 22 frets with ease. Case sold separately.

    As reviewed by Greg Nowak on 6/8/2013

    This guitar is simply amazing, bought the alpine white and the finish was beautiful. The hardware is good for a budget conscious instrument. it has a healthy amount of heft to it though it is certainly no shoulder shock and would serve well to those who are short in stature though I myself, being 6'1" find it to a very comfortable fit. the neck is a lovely rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays, and the neck was fast as lightening. The only real complaint is that the head stock tends to achieve horizontal equilibrium with the bod though the rumor that it has insufferable neck dive is absolute bogus. The sound is really were this thing pays out, the G-400 was a solid hit to begin with, but Custom shops are simply impeccable. This instrument can play just about anything you want it to, though aesthetically it is suited for rock. Anything AC/DC, Cream, or Black Sabbath and your home, though it has the spank and twang (clean) to play country, jazz, or big band. The distortion is a powerhouse and can take you were you as far into the dark side as your palate desires. But rest assured this guitar is a versatile go anywhere play anything machine. Construction is rock solid and would easily withstand live use. The knobs, unlike many cheaper instruments, actually serve a function beyond an on-off switch. I did notice that the bridge tone knob was slightly askew but this had no served as no hindrance to the functionality of the knob itself. The bridge has the new mechanism that prevents it from falling off when changing strings. The tuners are Grover tombstone style tuners (except on the cherry and ebony models), and hold their tune very well. All said and done I'm a sucker for SGs and this has proved to be a fruitful investment, even impressing my Les Paul fanatic friend who hates SGs beyond reason. Are there better guitars out there, yes, but in that price range its only real competition is the classic vibe series by Squier (also worth looking into) but for what I play, this was really the only logical choice. I would recommend this guitar to anyone and would have no problem replacing it should it be stolen.

  • Great

    Fantastic guitar sounds great, the only problem was that it came with a few deep scratches on the pick guard but isn't a huge deal. Everything works great the coil tapping is flawless no complaints other then the pick guard.

  • Shopped around, then found this!

    As reviewed by Tyler on 10/3/2014

    I went back and forth on a couple different models about a year ago. one day I finally just walked into a GC and sat with a 2 I wanted to try. I tried this model and just fell in love! it's really a great guitar, with the coil split coming standard. I can play a ton of different styles with it and use it for all my writing. The only reason it isn't getting a 5 star from me is that when I'm playing an open chord if i remove my hand from the neck it tends to dive, which isn't hard to remedy if you keep your right forearm planted on the body when trying to get a crowd excited or getting your hair out of your eyes. My solution to this was actually quite simple: I got an old Crown Royal pouch (it comes with the bottle) filled it with some BBs from my air rifle, and found a snug position for it inside the electronics housing. it adds a little wight but keeps it pretty stable now.
