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.

Features
  • Resonant solid mahogany body
  • super fast Slim-taper set-in mahogany neck
  • Versatile Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers with coil-split
  • Fully adjustable tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece
  • Wilkinson white Keystone style tuners
  • Case sold separately

    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 .

    Just purchased this guitar, love the look of this SG. I knew I would be replacing the pick ups. personal preference, I prefer a hotter high output pick up in all my guitars. This guitar plays and sounds great. I highly recommend it for pros or beginners...

      Great sound out of the box. I looked over with a microscope first thing and it was almost perfect. It was missing one tiny screw on the pick guard but Guitar Center supplied a whole bag of them immediately. It is now perfect.

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

        I purchased this guitar about a year ago b/c it was recommended by one of the sales guys at GC. Well, many thanks to that guy!!! I'm a beginner, but have played about 4-5 different electrics. This one is seriously the best. It's so easy to play. I'm a female so the light weight of the guitar is perfect as opposed to my Epiphone Goth Les Paul, which is way too heavy.

        This guitar is easy to tune and holds it very well. My only complaint is that the neck drops when you release grip. Quite a hissy when you play standing. But I can deal with that.

        Oh! One more thing. Mine came with the black fretboard which I haven't seen on any others. It looks awesome!

        I love this silver burst SG. There isn't a flaw anywhere on the guitar. It is beautiful and the sound is excellent. Ive always wanted an SG and this guitar fits the bill. Solid guitar for the price and the GC service was terrific.

        The Ultimate Stoner Rock Guitar

        By 

        from Washington, DC

        Pros

        • Coil Split
        • Looks Fantastic
        • Plays Like Butter
        • Tone And Sustain For Days

        Cons

        • Low Quality Pots
        • Neck dive

        Best Uses

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

          Saved up a couple of paychecks and finally picked myself up this guitar in silverburst, and let me just say, it is the ultimate stoner/doom/fuzzed out 70s heavy bluesy psychedelic rock MACHINE. The black magic that comes out of this guitar could summon Josh Homme, J. Mascis and Satan himself and then hand each of them a beer. It's perfect largely because it has that classic SG cutting bite to the tone that, while a little harsh on the cleans, makes the fuzz jump out and scream in the leads and stay nice and chunky in the rhythms. And come on, you're not eyeing an SG to play cleans. My only real complaints are the neck dive (but it's an SG, they all do it, plus it can be remedied by a more angled playing position), and the pots. The push-pulls for the coil splits are difficult to do on the fly, especially with sweaty hands, and the knobs are slick and a little too close together. I'll be replacing them with push-push pots topped with speed knobs. Other than that, it's great.

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

          I went back and forth on a couple different models about a year ago. one day I finally just walked into a GC and sat with a 2 I wanted to try. I tried this model and just fell in love! it's really a great guitar, with the coil split coming standard. I can play a ton of different styles with it and use it for all my writing. The only reason it isn't getting a 5 star from me is that when I'm playing an open chord if i remove my hand from the neck it tends to dive, which isn't hard to remedy if you keep your right forearm planted on the body when trying to get a crowd excited or getting your hair out of your eyes. My solution to this was actually quite simple: I got an old Crown Royal pouch (it comes with the bottle) filled it with some BBs from my air rifle, and found a snug position for it inside the electronics housing. it adds a little wight but keeps it pretty stable now.

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

          Fantastic guitar sounds great, the only problem was that it came with a few deep scratches on the pick guard but isn't a huge deal. Everything works great the coil tapping is flawless no complaints other then the pick guard.

          Epiphone 1966 G-400 PRO

          By 

          from Appleton, Wi

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

          This guitar is simply amazing, bought the alpine white and the finish was beautiful. The hardware is good for a budget conscious instrument. it has a healthy amount of heft to it though it is certainly no shoulder shock and would serve well to those who are short in stature though I myself, being 6'1" find it to a very comfortable fit. the neck is a lovely rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays, and the neck was fast as lightening. The only real complaint is that the head stock tends to achieve horizontal equilibrium with the bod though the rumor that it has insufferable neck dive is absolute bogus. The sound is really were this thing pays out, the G-400 was a solid hit to begin with, but Custom shops are simply impeccable. This instrument can play just about anything you want it to, though aesthetically it is suited for rock. Anything AC/DC, Cream, or Black Sabbath and your home, though it has the spank and twang (clean) to play country, jazz, or big band. The distortion is a powerhouse and can take you were you as far into the dark side as your palate desires. But rest assured this guitar is a versatile go anywhere play anything machine. Construction is rock solid and would easily withstand live use. The knobs, unlike many cheaper instruments, actually serve a function beyond an on-off switch. I did notice that the bridge tone knob was slightly askew but this had no served as no hindrance to the functionality of the knob itself. The bridge has the new mechanism that prevents it from falling off when changing strings. The tuners are Grover tombstone style tuners (except on the cherry and ebony models), and hold their tune very well. All said and done I'm a sucker for SGs and this has proved to be a fruitful investment, even impressing my Les Paul fanatic friend who hates SGs beyond reason. Are there better guitars out there, yes, but in that price range its only real competition is the classic vibe series by Squier (also worth looking into) but for what I play, this was really the only logical choice. I would recommend this guitar to anyone and would have no problem replacing it should it be stolen.
