A GREAT CHOICE

By Clint Gormley

from New Jersey

This guitar is possibly one of the best you could pick if your on a budget like I was. The tone you get out of this guitar is great. The pick ups aren't the best but they certainly aren't bad at all. The neck is a bit on the heavier side and may be uncomfortable at first if your not use to it. But it's easy to get use to and is just an all around great guitar.

Oh my god..

By Whydoyouwanttoknow Smith

from NY

This could possibly be one of the best crafted, best sounding, best playable guitar you could ever imaging. The alpine white finish is better in person. I've heard people say things about like the Epiphone "Black Beauty" that it's a black mirror, well this is a white one. The Neck is very playable and the Tune-O-matic Bridge helps a whole lot. Almost everything about this guitar is perfect with the exceptions of the tuners and the nut. The tuners, though being grovers, and starting out great, after a few months start to go a little wack. They sometimes turn slightly when playing which throws the guitar off. The nut being some sort of plastic, when bending the strings they get stuck in the slots and go out of tune. But that is NOOOOOOOO biggy. All you have to do is take a sharpened pencil (because the nut is black) and mark the inside of the slots. If you have the chance to get this I HIGHLY advise it. It's a great guitar, and an astonishing one for the price.

A Great Steal!!!!!!!

By x ownt x

from California

i bought this like 3 months ago and it is great. This limited edition SG is a great guitar for any kind of music and is very good quality. It stays in tune for a long time and pretty light to me. I recommend this for anyone whether youre on a budget or not.

Great instrument

By Jim

from PA

I purchased my Sg a few months ago, and I am in love with it. It's a great copy of the Gibson one and is great for any young fans. Has a good heavey sound for what I play, but the headstock is very heavy and takes some time to adjust to. Overall great guitar.

Absolutely Amazing

By IsltnViolet

from Detroit, Michigan

This guitar is great. For the price, the quality is astounding. The Gibson SG is known for being light weight and fast, and the Epiphone is no different. The Alpine White color is absolutely beautiful, and gets a vintage look with age. I would recommend this guitar for beginning players or for advanced players. I did switch out the stock pickups for Seymour Duncans. I would recommend replacing the stock pickups for anyone who wants to play a show, or if you just want a stronger punch. Overall the Epiphone G-400 is an amazing guitar. I love mine!

Great Guitar

By Danny Zero

from Pittston, Pennsylvania

Excellent all around instrument. Plays great live and stays in tune (thanks to Grover machine heads.) Although the humbuckers are stock, they give great warm tone on the rhythm setting and exceptional clarity on the lead setting. Neck through also gives it great sustain. It is also beautiful, and light if youre playing a show. Gives great tone in the studio as well, and accomodates many styles of play.

AWESOME GUITAR!!!!!!!!!

By Liam

from Windsor, CT

I got this guitar a couple days ago, it is definetly one of the best guitars that i've ever played. The neck is the perfect size for me. Like other people say, the neck is very weighty, and if you let go of the guitar, it sinks to the ground. The pickups dont sound that different to me, but then again, thats just me. I definetly think this is one of the best guitars i've ever played, and is the best guitar for the money. Definetly recommend this one.

SUPER GUITAR!!

By That Rockstar Guy

from CO

I've had this guitar for a little over a year now, and it is one of the most beautifully crafted guitars I've ever layed eyes on, not to mention it's raw power. This guitar literally changed my life when it brought out the clarity and definition in my guitar playing that I couldn't hear before on my other guitar. The pickups are nice and punchy but also smooth in both the Rhythm and Treble settings. The Rhythm pickup is perfect for any style including hard rock. But my personal favorite is the treble switch, which kicks into overdrive and brings out the pure raw intensity of my lead playing and helps my solo's standout. The deep recessed double cuttaways also make it esier to get to those higher frets. I've been playing rock for years and have played on various guitars, but this guitar just plays better than all of them. This is a great guitar for the price and can definetly hold is own on stage for years to come. 5 STARS!!

New Review: Its Beast

By Drew Bender

from MI

This guitar is a beast. The pick ups are amazing. I had this guitar for about alomost 2 years. I was very happy that I did. This guitar can go great for blues like Jimi Hendrix, to metal like Black Label Society and Metallica. The only bad thing is the strap falls off, so I recommend strap locks and another bad thing is the guitar always falls 2 the side when your standing. But besides that it's amazing. It's great for beginners and peole who have been playing years. It really is beautiful guitar. So what if it's not a Gibson it sounds amazing. Buy one if your intrested it's worth every penny.

By Toolfan94

from J-Ville ,Fl.

This is absoloutely one the most incredable guitars I've ever held in my hands, the pickups were fine, the neck was fast and smooth, the tuners excellent! (Grovers) Over all it's a great guitar.

It took a couple returns but finally I got a great guitar!

By Dave T

from Pittsburgh, PA

I've always had my eye on these Epiphone SG's. After Christmas I had a little extra cash left over and a few gift cards and decided to finally get one. Well, actually I had to get three. Allow me to explain. After bringing the first guitar home, I found that it had 7 dead frets. I took it to my Luthier and after having run diagnostics on it, he suggested taking it back to get a new one due to a poor neck. I did this. When i got my 2nd one, the neck was great and the frets played fine but after one week the toggle switch snapped off. I took this one back and against my will I exchanged it for a 3rd one. This one was excellent all the way around. The neck is very fast, the sustain is great for such a light guitar, and the looks are tremendous! My suggestions for potential buyers: "buy it, and immediately take it to your guitar tech to look it over, if he gives you the ok you'll be very happy!!

Awesome Epiphone

By Evan D

from Seattle Washington

This guitar is an awesome Epiphone. This was my first guitar and it has served me very well! The only thing you need to do is change out the strings when you buy it and you are set! Many people say it dents easily but i disagree for mine has bumped into lots of stuff and still looks brand new. So if you are looking for a good guitar to get started with, this guitar would be great.

Awesome, but easily dented

By Jenny Spires

from Somewhere

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.

AMAZING GUITAR

By Jordan L

from PA

I got this guitar back in october with my birthday money and all i have to say is wow. at first i had second thoughts because its an epiphone, but then i plugged it in and it was amazing. great tone, fast neck, and the stock pickups are great. the only problem i had was one of my tone knobs was making a weird noise wen i turned it and the label of the knob fell off but not a big deal. i would recomend this to any guitarist.

Sic Guitar....

By Rick

from Girard, Ohio

I got thiis guitar a couple days ago and i cannot put it down, its slim fast neck makes it easy to solo on and the pickups have a good clear tone you can hear ever note and chord played. it sounds great for stuff like Greenday, Scars On Broadway, Blink 182, System Of A Down and AC/DC and other stuff like that. It plays just as good if not better than most Gibsons , I would Highly Recomend it.

Great guitar on a budget

By John

from Boise, ID

I picked this guitar up a few years ago just so I could have a cheapo back-up guitar. I was immediately surprised by the guitars great sound and at how comfortable it was to play. It was almost par with the real gibsons. After a year or so though I began to run into some major problems such as electrical things and the guitar just plain started falling apart. I would recommend this guitar to a beginning player who is not quite sure if they want to invest in a more expensive guitar.
