Overview

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 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. The LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece provide more sustain and make string changing easier. The deep double-cutaway lets you reach all 22 frets with ease.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

This is a real steal from Epiphone, this instrument is built to the exact standards of a Gibson guitar, with the exceptions of lower end pickups that you should replace with whatever suits your sound, and the finish and woodwork is not as high quality as the Gibson model, so basically you save yourself about nine hundred dollars to get an instrument of about parallel quality.

this guitar is an ok guitar. playing many different musical styles i need 2 move up down and back again along the neck and frets. this guitar is very neck heavy and i have broken its headstock off because of it dropping head first. pickups are kinda muddy and bland, like they have no special life to them. the finish is a very blood like red and the grovers are really nice. i wouldve given this guitar a better rating if wasnt so neck heavy.

ABSOLUTELEY AMAZING!!!

By MetalHead717

from Louisiana

This guitar is amazing! I was looking at the Gibson SG Standards, but I heard that I could get something just as good for a lot cheaper- great example, THIS! It is absolutely beautiful and plays great. It is a little heavy, but I play mostly sitting anyway. Epiphone really combined cost with quality in this guitar. Great guitar for a great price!

Awesome

By sg 400 custom

from Pacifica, CA

This is such a great guitar. I got it as a Christmas present and I love it. I play in a rock band and this guitar has not failed to perform perfectly yet!!! I love how it lets you reach the lower frets easily. This is just as good as or better that a Gibson. No matter what anyone says.

Love at first sight

By midsummernite82

from Knoxville, TN

I have always loved the look and sound of an SG, and this one is no exception. It feels as good as any upscale Gibson I have played, with an almost equally good sound to boot. The guitar seems to come alive when fired up through my Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier. Great clean, great overdriven, and for the money just an all around great guitar.

ACDC Fans buy this guitar

By GnRMetallica

from New York

i bought this guitar a few years ago & the style of the pickups is great. its great for the standard acdc guitar playing but its a fifth of the cost of a gibson. im not going to say that its as good as a gibson but you are getting much more than a fifth of the quality. great guitar i recomend it for any1 who likes hard rock & classic rock. it sounds good with metal but it does not sound as good as a metal guitar. if you play specificly metal & thats it then dont buy this guitar but if you want a durable guitar that can play all types of music at a reasonable cost then this is the guitar for you

Great guitar, but its not for everyone

By Gitaxman15

from Lansing, IL

I bought this guitar and couldn't put it down. It was beautiful, the neck felt good and most importantly, it had the sound I was looking for. The only con would have to be that it needs to be setup when purchased but that is expected. However, one thing I did read in a lot of reviews that it has a muddy tone, but I don't think it does. Given, it has a REALLY warm tone at the neck pickup for blues-oriented sounds and the bridge gets some good gain. All in all, its a good choice but its not for everyone

Bulls-eye!!

By EZ Rocker

from Longview, WA

As a former owner of a Gibson SG Standard, (never should've gotten rid of that darn guitar), I bought this guitar when I switched from bass to guitar in the band I play in, and didn't have enough cash to get another Gibson like the one I had. I used to be one of those Gibson owners who "look down" on Epiphones, like they are the unwanted step brothers of their Gibson counterparts. I couldn't have been more wrong. This guitar sounds and plays every bit as good as the standard, and at less than half the price! I was very pleasantly surprised. All I did with mine was have the intonation set, which should probably be done with any new guitar after playing it for a month or so, and I've been playing the F out of mine ever since. Not a bad idea to give it a "once over" and make sure everything is nice and tight. There were a few things that I found loose, including the input jack. One thing I didn't care for, was that the protective plastic cover over the pick guard has the bridge mounted on top of it, which makes it really tricky to get all the plastic coating off of it. All in all, this guitar is WELL worth the cash, and I honestly couldn't tell you the difference between this and my old standard if I were blindfolded. Not saying there arent cheap, poorly made Epiphones out there, just that this one, (made in the custom shop), isn't one of them. Get over your "Gibson pride" and get yourself one.

Almost like a real sg!

By Childrenofbodommonkey7593

from Staten Island, NY

Awesome guitar. Plays almost exactly like a real sg. The only thing is that the pickups kinda suck. You should pickup some better pickups if you are buyin this guitar. Overall its a sic guitar that any serious guitarist should own.

Rock solid guitar

By Stanley

from Chicago, IL

This guitar needed to be setup to avoid fret buzz. After setup it became a great guitar for the money. The OD sound is awesome. The only negative is the cleans with the stock pickups are a little lacking.
