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.

When this Epiphone "Limited Edition" (1966) G-400 Pro guitar arrived it blew my mind right out of the box! The intonation and setup is near perfect ! Sounds great! The slim taper neck is a dream to play. Every bit as good as the original 1966 Gibson SG I used to own. The green tulip Wilkinson tuners are really NICE and neck inlays and overall craftsmanship is EXCELLENT ! This guitar has the "dual volume knob" coil taps which I really like. You pull the volume knob UP to get a single coil sound and push it DOWN to get the humbucker sound. This is a very good feature to get a variety of sounds with the Classic Alnico pickups. I have been playing this for a couple days now and it holds tuning very well. I've been playing this through a new Fender Mustang 1 amp and I can tell already that this guitar will be one of my main guitars for recording. This is one of the finest Epiphones I have ever owned and I'm so glad I bought it from Musicians Friend at a reduced price of [$].

Ordered the G-400 pro. Ordering was easy, delivery was fast. Finish was beautiful. I was more than pleased with the Pickups. Nice SG growl but the highs still cut through. No Fret Buzz anywhere on the neck. Good Volume Everything was great quality except for one careless defect. The housing for the peg on the G string that connects through the headstock to the machine heads in the back was not inserted properly into the headstock was not inserted properly. Instead of sitting flush against the headstock, it sticks up about 3/8" and is on a slight angle. It looks like it just wasn't pressed in properly. I kinda chuckled when I read a previous review where someone said that inspector 24 needs to have their eyes checked. This guitar was also inspected by #24. There is no way that anyone could miss this. One careless mistake while being built and an inspector that isn't doing the bare minimum of their job requirement turned this beautiful instrument into a warranty and return problem for me. It's too bad because this is a nice guitar.

          Shopped between a couple of models....finally found this one in store, and got to play it. Hands down had to have it. If I didn't love my Epi Les Paul standard plus top so much,I would easily trade it for this one. Was nice out of the box,but will have my luthier give it a once over. New strings and minor tweaks. Well worth the money and couple of days waiting on shipping. GC customer service and the guys at GC Greenville keep knocking it out of the park.

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

            I recently got this as an early christmas gift and it completely made my year. This beauty arived in 3 layers of boxes and bubble wrap so there were no scratches or blemishes of any kind. The hardware is a beautiful chrome and the paint job is phenomenal. The split coil pickups are amazing amd this things sound is so good that it sounded great in my crapy Crate MX15R amp. The body is super comfortable and the neck is a blast to play.My only complaint is that it doesnt come with a gig-bag to protect it, but that isnt much of a problem.

            Love the sustain and feel of the neck and fingerboard. If this guitar had neck binding like the Epiphone Les Paul and ES-330 models, it would be the most amazing guitar for the price on the market.
