The quality of this guitar is great. But remember to change the strings when you get it, or it will buzz when you play it. This guitar is *VERY* easily dented, so be very careful when carrying it around. Overall, this is a great, high-quality guitar.

I don't own this or any SG (yet) but i have played many and i've learned that if you use a suede strap, it fixes the problem of the neck sagging. really, the neck isn't thaaat heavy, just the body it so light
First off, I'm one of those guys who ALWAYS has to improve the pickups. I will usually buy Dimarzio or Seymour Duncans, or better yet; Gibson Classic 57's or Burstbuckers (in My EPI LP's). However, there is NO WAY I am swapping out these PUPS! I spent hours comparing my Gibson Studio LP to this G-400 in every tone and volume setting I could think of, and this baby sounds just as good, and even better in some settings. The craftsmanship is impeccable and I can hardly believe how much i paid for this. I did play the Gibson first, and did have enough money to buy that one, but this one was such a better deal. Did the Gibson SG sound and feel better? Yes, it did, but not by leaps and bounds, or maybe I'm just always going to have it in my mind that Gibsons are better. I'd say buy this guitar and don't waste any money replacing the PUPS, they are awesome. Trust me. As far as the rest of the guitar, it looks, feels, and palys like a dream. Epiphone really did it right this time.
I've owned six g400's in the last decade, and I've loved every one of them. You simply cannot beat the quality for the price. Yes, it is neck heavy - as is every other SG guitar, ever. You get used to it. The PUPs are a little under powered, but really not bad at all for this price guitar. Still, slap a set of your favorite PUPs in, string it up with some 11 gauge strings, plug into a loud amp, and you're in business my friend.
I bought an Epiphone SG off the shelf a few months ago and it is great. It stays in tune pretty well, just make sure you restring it well. The tone it puts out is very nice for a lead or rythm guitar player. I lowered the action on it, which is very easy and only requires a screwdriver. Overall, I really like the guitar. It feels solid, is easy to play, and isn't very expensive at all.
This was my first electric guitar and it does not disappoint in any way. The neck is thin, smooth, and easy to play with. The Grover tuners rarely go out of tune. The alpine white is more amazing in person and the sound is just amazing. I have heard a lot of other guitars and I would say everyone needs this one if you want something affordable, durable, and all around amazing.
This guitar is great. I took my newly teenage son to the store to select a guitar and play several as a gift. He loves this guitar. We purchased on line to avoid getting the demo from the store and the guitar arrived in 2 days in perfect form. This is the first guitar we have bought without his guitar teacher's prior OK and luckily the teacher thought this was a great guitar for the value. The return policy made checking it out in home a no brainer. The sound is perfect, it isn't too weighty, my 13 year old long-fingered son seems to be able to reach all of the frets with ease. Very pleased all around.
I got this just to spice up the same ol Guitars n amp thing....Its nice to grab a new toy...just to play with, I was floored when i took the lid off the box this came in....the finish, and inlays are phenomenal.....iIt came with barbedwire for strings.......so get strings on the day of purchase, other than that i love this guitar....my gf picked it out, and she made a great pick....Its gonna need setup....but the fingerboard, frets, inlays are all fantastic, wikipedia this guitar....it has a bound fingerboard (bound with rosewood)....(gibson binds the fingerboard on the "Gibson" sg with plastic), Its a remake of the "62" SG, Mahogany body and set mahogany neck, Grover tuners....well, you can read the specs here....for the price its REALLY hard to find a nicer guitar....country of origin might bug ya...but thats the only drawback i see.....your crazy not to buy this guitar, i'll list my other guitars...so ya know what im comparing it to,i have a hohner acoustic, "08" Gibson Les Paul Standard, a "09" Gibson Explorer, a Dean ML Buddy Blaze, a Jackson DKMG, A Schecter Hellraiser, And a Little Maestro "V" (With a Dimarzio Pickup)....and i have a Ibanez bass....i used to have a Gibson ES335, a Gibson "Chet Atkins" model....And an old Epiphone Randy Rhoads copy....so i know what good guitars feel like.....This SG is a steal....thanks for reading...
i got this about a year ago and i loved the feel of the neck. however, the headpiece is kind of heavy. if your standing, your guitar will dip down=[ and these pickups sucked. i got emgs for it though=D!
This is an excellant guitar for a beginner. Not only is it priced well, but it sounds incredible and gives you a boost in confidence while playing.
This guitar is awesome! i bought it a few months ago and ill never stop playing it. It has a sweet sound to it and you can play just about any type of music with it. This SG is a great buy because of the price and the quality. The alpine white finish makes it look even more Legit! even though its not the almighty gibson SG, This Epiphone is still a great guitar and is worth the look.
