Overview

This back in black menace definitely sends a message even before you start playing it. The Epiphone Goth G-400 Electric Guitar is a twisted version of the Gibson '62 SG with solid mahogany body and slim-tapered set mahogany neck. The rosewood fingerboard has a VII inlay at the 12th fret and the headstock is highlighted with a Celtic cross. The deep SG styled double-cutaways let you reach all 22 frets with ease. Separate volume and tone controls for each of the open-coil high-output Alnico V humbuckers give you complete control of your sound. An innovative integrated killswitch/tone pot lets you create a sonic strobe effect. The Goth G-400 is bathed in a satin black finish and sports black-chrome hardware. The LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and LockTone stopbar tailpiece add more sustain and make string changing easier. Limited lifetime warranty.

This is an excellent buy. A great guitar for the price of of one far inferior. At first I was detered by the goth finish, but after playing one, I bought it almost instantly. The reaction is incredible, and the sustain is decent. The only real complaint I have is the weight of the neck and headstock is much greater than the body, so it's not one to be slung around your neck and not played, but after playing one, that really won't be a problem.

Solid guitar for the price

By Michael Wamback

from Venice CA

Comments about Epiphone Goth G-400 Electric Guitar:

Purchased the Goth SG by Epiphone (G-400) to compliment the Epiphone Goth Les Paul I own. I love the look of the Epiphone Goth series, with the flat black, the minimal decoration (nothing on the neck except XII on the 12th fret) and that awesome cross logo on the headstock. Personally, I like the set neck (as opposed to the bolt on) which the G-400 has. The G-400 is Epi's upper end SG. Was able to set the action fairly low out of the box. First impressions were that the guitar is well made and looks fabulous, as you would expect. Finish was nice and not imperfections that I could see. The reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 are some of the generic problems endemic to Epiphone SG's and LP's. The stock ABR-1 bridge is simply okay, but the saddles tend to be a bit loose when results in noticeable rattle (as opposed to buzz) when you lower the action tight. This is easily remedied by upgrading to a Gotoh or Tonepros bridge after market (metric/large post is a direct swap.) Also, not a fan of the electronics. The tone pots appear to be linear instead of audio taper. They really don't seem as effective at controlling tone as I would like. Pickups are bright, almost too bright for this guitar. I'll be upgrading to new pickups and pots to get the sound I know this guitar should make. Considering the price point of $300 though, with about $200 in upgrades the guitar will be as sweet as any Gibson costing considerably more. The Grover tuners are smooth and good quality. Overall construction of the guitar is very good, as with most Epi's these days. For a casual player, this is an awesome little guitar. The only reason I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is the lack of quality in the bridge and the feeling that the electronics could have been better. Still, a very solid buy and I'm very happy with mine. As soon as the new bridge, pickups and pots are installed, I know I'll be thrilled!

nice tone for the price

Comments about Epiphone Goth G-400 Electric Guitar:

I picked up a used one in a pawn shop a couple years ago. It's a 2004. Not quite the same as the newer one, but the tone is great(think Robbie Kreiger). The neck on mine is like the gibson '50's profile, But after I dressed the frets and lowered the action, it plays great. It's not a gibson, but for the price,I'd say it's close enough. I'm not into the whole gothic thing, But if you are, go for it. you won't be disappointed.

Excellent value!!!

Comments about Epiphone Goth G-400 Electric Guitar:

This is the second Epiphone that I have owned over the years and I have to say that I have been pleased by the quality and value of both. The Goth G-400 has a fast neck and low action, the only buzz I've found was low E string 19-20th fret, but easily remedied at the bridge. Keeps a tune very well. Fit and finish are excellent at this price and the flat black finish with black hardware just looks cool. My only complaint is that the stock pickups are a bit muddy; no big deal when cranking out heavily distorted Sabbath type riffs. However, I'm impressed enough with this guitar that spending money to upgrade the pickups is not an issue. Overall, an excellent value and well executed effort by Epiphone. If you can't afford a Gibson, this will fill in nicely.

I like what I see

By Lazarus Long

from Texas

Comments about Epiphone Goth G-400 Electric Guitar:

I have a G-400, and I've liked every G-400 that I've picked up. So I'm sure this one is the same as the rest, only with a few different cosmetics. I just wanted to comment on the ad for the guitar.You say there's a VII (7) at the 12th fret. Then you say that it has pearloid trapezoid inlays. This makes me wonder if you have any clue about what you're selling. Are these really Alnico V pickups? If you can't tell pearloid trapezoid inlays from no inlays at all, and you can't tell 12 from 7, then I begin to doubt if you know the rest of the specs.

So-So

By Chris Y.

from Woodbury, MN

Comments about Epiphone Goth G-400 Electric Guitar:

I purchased this guitar a couple months ago from Guitar Center. It was my second guitar, my first one a cheapo starter that had zero playability. In the store it sounded great and I loved the cherry red color I purchased it in. When I got it home it soon became apparent there would be problems. I took it in three times in three weeks. First, there was a truss rod issue (not that big a deal). Then, the nut fell off so I couldnt plug it in to my amp. The third time the intonation was off. I didn't even notice, but my guitar teacher did. Despite these problems, the action was AMAZING on mine. Also, it sounds just like AC/DC and hold up well to the damage I've done it.

it's great

By Jeff

from Bayport, NY

Comments about Epiphone Goth G-400 Electric Guitar:

well i gotta admit, for the price i payed(which wasnt too much) it i well worth every penny. This guitar is without a doubt durable, and ive had it for about for years now. if you've got a good amp, you can bring out the best in this guitar. it plays nice, the action is superb and the tone is wonderful. but, you are getting your money's worth, and if you play your guitars into the ground(like myself) you may want to make adjustements to it. i have to tighten the tuning heads frequently(everytime i change strings) and adjust the trussrod everyonce in awhile. i recommend this to beginners and intermediates. Buy It!

Awesome Guitar!!!!

By purplemakesperfect

from Vancouver, BC

Comments about Epiphone Goth G-400 Electric Guitar:

My dad bought this guitar preowned and then gave it to me for my birthday, and it is amazing!!! comments from some of my friends got me a little leery on epi's, but rest assured this guitar will not disappoint. the tone of this thing rivals high quality gibsons, at a fraction of the price. mine has a bunged-up fret at 13, but thats any easy fix, and is a flaw of the previous owner, and not the build. the look is also awesome, its drawn raves from my friends. get this guitar, it won't disappoint.

epiphone goth g400 SG

By Darkstorm-_Iasz

from Houston Tx

Comments about Epiphone Goth G-400 Electric Guitar:

Except for loose nuts on the tuners and pots, the guitar arrived in excellent condition. Fretwork, build, and overall qaulity is excellent. No truss rod adjustment was needed. Lowered action for personal preferance and adjusted pups pole peices and overall height which resulted in excellent crunchy very articulate voice with very good drive. I also veryh much like the seperate vol and tone for each pup as this gives greater tweakability then most guitars out there. I did replace the stock knobs with black speedknobs and added glow in dark fretboard markers. Very happy with my new Sg guitar. Its a pro grade instrument imo.
