The Epiphone SG-Express electric guitar captures the look, sound and feel of the famous SG, but in a slightly smaller package that's perfect for travel use, younger players or those more comfortable playing a small electric guitar. The neck has the same basic dimensions as a full-size guitar but the scale length is only 22" as compared to 24-3/4" on a full-size SG. The result is an extremely comfortable Epiphone guitar that maintains good string tension when tuned to standard E.
Great Design Features!
While the SG-Express is an authentic SG, Epiphone has incorporated in some unique design features to ensure that the guitar performs well. First, while the body is still Mahogany the neck on the Express is Hard Maple as opposed to the traditional Mahogany neck. This gives the Epiphone guitar a little more high-end bite or brighter tone which effectively offsets the slightly looser string tension due to the shorter scale length. Additionally, the combination of the fully-adjustable fixed bridge with a string-through body design fits well on the smaller size body while adding sustain and making string changes a breeze. Finally, the neck is bolted in place securely using 4 recessed bolts set into a tapered heel making upper fret access easier and very comfortable.
With the slightly looser string tension, it's even more important to have great tuners. Epiphone designed the SG Express guitar with premium, 14:1 ratio die-cast tuners to give you excellent tuning accuracy and stability. As a bonus, a custom Express-sized padded gig bag is included with every guitar making it the perfect travel companion.
Peace of Mind!
As with all Epiphones, the SG Express includes Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and is backed by their famous 24/7/365 Customer Service.

it's very cool looking, and noticeably small compared to a full size SG. It's built well, with good action, but something is 'off' - it does not stay in tune. very aggravating and frustrating. i ended up returning it and bought the model c310 for my couch guitar. was another 80 bucks but so worth it.
This is the real deal,folks. a great beginner guitar for the smaller fingers OR conversation piece. I've gotten SO many compliments on the cool finish and big sound.Best of all, the price!
