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.

        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.

          I bought this guitar as a step up of my unbranded electric guitar and its was great move. I get this vintage acdc/black Sabbath tone and I don't need to bust the bank

          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.

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

            I am a novice and this is my second guitar. A step up from my LP Spec II. I fell in love with this guitar right away. Yes, there is a heavy neck, it's a solid body- like others have said. I solved that issue, and it was a minor one at that, with a custom 2" leather strap. It feels great on my shoulder and in my hands!! I am so very happy with the sound and the versatility. I may not have to buy another guitar for several years. With the coil splitting I can get a load of different sounds out of it. I am VERY happy with the sustain and the feel, and find myself playing it for several hours on end. Thank you Epiphone for making such a great affordable 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.
