I got this guitar about a month ago and was just blown away by the quality of it. People think that epiphones are bad when they are great guitars. After like a month i was so convinced that thos guitar was worth upgrading that i sold my fender strat and bought some Dimarzio pickups cause the ones that come with it are a bit muddy (if you're a beginner you wont even notice so don't change them) so great guitar for a begginer or for an experienced player. Good guitar to upgrade.... so worth it! What are you waiting... Buy it!

The epiphone vintage G-400 guitar is okay - not that bad, not that great. This guitar has a very lightweight body, and a very heavy neck which makes playing it very, very awkward. You have to push your right forearm on the back of the guitar so that the neckboard will be ballanced. This makes it harder to strum correctly. When you stand up, the neck tips over to the ground, and in some cases could damage the guitar. The sustain isn't great either. On the high notes, they'll probably last about 1-2 seconds. Also, it untunes very easily. I would just buy a guitar with a heavier body, and with a longer sustain. I remember when I got this guitar about 5 months ago, the reviews were great, but when i got the guitar, I became doubtful. Just save up and get the les paul. -- btw, it isn't better than the Gibson.

    Very solid guitar, great sustain. The lighter weight makes it easier to play live. As all say, it is neck heavy and not well-balanced.

    Comments about Epiphone Vintage G-400 Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar because my Teisco Del Rey guitar had a bad bow and was beyond fixing, so I picked up this nice sg in red. The tone is amazing, love the pickups, less squeals when you turn the amp up, and overall awesome guitar. My two complaints are, the neck is heavier than the body so when you're using a strap and not holding the neck it falls, and not a big deal but I don't like the orange on the pickup selector. Really good quality and has a pretty sick sound. My new go to guitar

      A Simply Stunning Guitar

      By Jared Serrano

      from Santa Rosa NM

      Comments about Epiphone Vintage G-400 Electric Guitar:

      This Epiphone G-400 is right on par with Gibson, if not better. Its build, its hardware, its electronics, all great! You cant beat this value! Its worn cherry finish is great and feels good to the tough. Its solid with a rock hard set neck and an added bonus with Grover tuners. The chrome humbuckers look great and sound better, especially on an overdrive pedal. The cleans are clean and the dirty can really get down and dirty. If Gibsons are not feasible for you and your budget, GET THE SG G-400!!!

      Absolutely Astonishing!

      By Jared Serrano

      from New Mexico

      Comments about Epiphone Vintage G-400 Electric Guitar:

      This guitar is extremely great quality! Besides the worn finish and not having coil tapping, its like the G-400 pro! It plays so smooth and looks fantastic! The neck is a bit heavy and has a tendency to dive bomb, but a good thick leather strap can cure that. Its really solid and feels great to play. The sound is like something a thousand dollars more.

      OMG! What a value!

      By David Townsend

      from Fort Wayne Indiana

      Comments about Epiphone Vintage G-400 Electric Guitar:

      After having my Epi Les Paul Studio for a year, I decided I wanted an SG. So today, I picked up this piece. I can't tell you how happy I am! I had to lower the bridge just a bit, but other than that, it's been a blast to play all day long! GREAT tone and sustain .... I just love it! I have always played "standing up", so I was concerned about the heavy neck and headstock that I kept reading about, but by the end of the day I'm use to it. This thing has a great feel to it, and for what ever reason (I haven't figured out yet), I can pick individual notes a lot cleaner with this than I can on my Les Paul. I'm a firm believer in the Epiphone quality! Next, a hollow body Epi, and I'll be complete! If you want a quality guitar to play and learn on, you can't go wrong with an Epiphone! I am an "average" player, and play solely for my self, jamming along to my favorite classic rock, and country songs .... Not sure how these would hold up for a performer on stage, but for the "jamming around the house (or garage) guy", I HIGHLY recommend THIS SG by Epi! P.S. ... The "Grover" tuners on this thing are AWESOME! I'll be buying a set for my Les Paul shortly!

      AWESOME GUITAR!

      By Jared Schwab

      from San Diego, CA

      Comments about Epiphone Vintage G-400 Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar yesterday used from a friend for $100. It was basically brand new other than a small dent on the back. Let me tell you, It was the best $100 bucks that I have ever spent. The red finish is so cool and the pickups cut out any fuzz from the amp. I have been playing for about 3 years now and i own a handful of beginner guitars(Epiphone Les Paul Jr. Ibanez, etc.) but I can tell you, this one is not one of those. This guitar is perfect for intermediate to pro guitarist who want a quality SG but don't want to pay a bunch of money for a SG. Mine has no fret buzz and the fret board inlays are fantastic! Perfect for Rock n Roll like AC/DC and Guns N Roses Go to Guitar Center right now and buy It!

      Not as bad as I thought

      By Derek Mills

      from California

      Comments about Epiphone Vintage G-400 Electric Guitar:

      This is a great guitar for the price, It's very good for, Punk and Metal. I love to solo on it but I hate to stand and play it, since the strap button is on the back if I don't hold the neck or hold down it down with my forearm it will slide down and hit the floor hard which never good on epiphone/gibsons. The neck also feels a bit hard to play compared to a Fender or an Ibanez. I guess I'm just not much of an SG guy but overall this is a good guitar if you want to play AC/DC, Metallica, and Green Day. But if your like me get something you are for sure that you want and love.

I have a fender g dec but cuz the amp sucks,Its not so compatible with fender amps.I always tune my guitar with my amp and it always stays in tune! I have this guitar cuz Angus & Malcolm Young are my guitar heroes and its identical to AC?DC's tone.
