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 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.

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 PRO Electric Guitar:

This is a great, great SG! Looks beautiful and very well made. The original pups and electronics work and sound great. But, I bought this guitar to modify and it took them well. I stuck in a set of Seymour Duncan Slash pickups and replaced all the pots and caps with CTS and Orange Drop. Now I have one mean/sweet SG that sounds and plays great! Better than a Gibson special or faded or any other, other than a Standard.

      Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 PRO Electric Guitar:

      This is a great guitar. I picked up one used for the purposes of modding it, and it takes to mods VERY well. Solid build, decent frets etc. The only change I would consider really needed is to upgrade the nut (Tusq etc) Other than that, the pickups, tuners, bridge etc are all good and work fine.

      If you like SGs this is a good one with a thin, fast neck and great classic rock sound from the Alnico Classic Pro pickups.

          I am a novice, but I have owned lots of guitars and SGs over the years and this is a fine guitar. Feels good, sets up great, sounds full and like an SG should.

                I use this guitar for blues and rock. This guitar will make you feel like Angus Young or Tony Iommi when you play it. This is the next best thing to a real SG by Gibson.

                  this was my first guitar, and the only problems i had with it was the pickups rusted, and the threads on the input jack shredded and the input jack fell inside the guitar. I put a guitar fetish input jack in there and it works fine now.

                    The guitar is good. Decent fit and finish, electronics are well above expectations. I am glad I chose this over the Gibson SG. The Epiphone has more consistent and better in my opinion than the Gibson equivalent .
