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.

Great tone at a great price.

By Dan Howerton

from Fayetteville, AR

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

I have owned this model for 2 weeks, and I am digging the tone. The first one I purchased (Cherry) had a crack in the headstock that I didn't notice until I got home. The store swapped it for an Alpine White model. As soon as it was set up correctly, it sounded fantastic. You will get the same great humbucker tones as on other Epi SG's, but the coil-splitting makes this a true workhorse. When using coil splitting it doesn't quite sound like a Fender, but you could play surf music on it if you wanted to. The original Cherry finish that I bought was gorgeous, but I like the Alpine White as well (David St. Hubbins look). I would give it a 5, but the cracked headstock gives me some question about wood quality or handling.

Epiphone 1966 G-400 PRO

By Greg Nowak

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.

more fun than I paid for

By Mark Hemanson

from Lake Forest,Ca

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

Overall, I really like this Guitar. When I first got it, I do as I always do, send it to a GC tech and have the set up done. The strings that come in on it kinda suck, I tried Gibson tens like I have on my LP, but wasn't thrilled with the tone, started thinking maybe I made a bad purchase, then Dave at GC in Lake Forest Ca. suggested the DR blues, and everything was great from there. The coil tapping does what its supposed too, but, it will not give you a Fender sound, so don't think you get the best of both worlds. Also, the Alinco pick ups don't give you the AC/DC sound ( but lets be real, the Angus Young, PU itself is half the price of this guitar. I have had this thing for 9 months, I play a ton of blues and 70's rock. For this, fantastic, the neck is fast. Solos sound great, and a little playing with the tone knob really rounds things out. I have it in cherry, like there is any other color, and would not hesitate to gig with it, if something happened, I would immediately buy another.

      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.

        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!!

        The Ultimate Stoner Rock Guitar

        By Disciple of the Riff

        from Washington, DC

        Pros

        • Looks Fantastic

        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.

            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.

            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.
