Overview

The Epiphone 1966 G-400 limited edition is a fantastic version of the iconic 1966 Gibson SG with a beautiful Silver Burst finish and Alnico Classic Humbuckers. Every serious player wants an SG and here's the real thing that sounds as good as it looks. The original SG not only rivaled guitars of its own era for sonic variety but also proved to be a sign of things to come. Hard rock, metal and scores of rockers embraced the original SG and made it a classic. Now, the 1966 G-400 gives you the sound and look of a real SG without the vintage price tag. Case sold separately.

The SG Story
When the SG or "Solid Guitar" was introduced in 1961 as a replacement for the Les Paul, it was called the "fretless wonder" for its low frets and fast action. The twin horn cutaway design was like nothing on the market and its light but balanced weight made it the perfect guitar for stage and studio work. Later ˜60s models introduced the SG with humbucker pickups, and since then, the SG has become the go-to guitar for artists like The Who's Pete Townshend, Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC's Angus Young, Eric Clapton and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band. It was a 1966 era Gibson SG that was George Harrisons main guitar for the album Revolver and for the promotional films for œPaperback Writer and œRain.

Built for Classic SG Performance
The 1966 G-400 has long been both a players and collectors favorite, and the 1966 G-400 uses the same dimensions and build techniques as the 1966 vintage SGs made in the Kalamazoo factory. The solid tone-rich mahogany carved body gives the guitar a balanced feel on stage and in the studio (unlike cheap imitations that tend to be neck-heavy). The SlimTaper œD profile mahogany neck has a 24.75 scale with 24 frets and a 12 radius for incredible reach thanks to the SGs classic cutaway. And for that one-of-a-kind SG feel, the 1966 G-400 has a rosewood fingerboard with a 1.68 nut.

Electronics
Epiphone always finds a way to make subtle but important improvements on their classic designs and the 1966 G-400 is no exception. The red hot, high output Alnico Classic (neck) and Alnico Classic Plus (bridge) humbuckers give the 1966 G-400 a tonal palette that far exceeds any other guitar of its kind. Modern manufacturing techniques ensure that the 1966 G-400s pickups and electronics will not diminish over time and will rock as long as you can.

Hardware
Epiphone leads the way in manufacturing in making great sounding guitars for players of all levels and that goes for great hardware, too. Epiphone provides quality all-metal hardware on all its instruments including full function volume and tone knobs using full-size 500K O potentiometers matched with Epiphones rugged all-metal 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance.

The 1966 G-400 features the famous LockTone bridge and Stopbar tailpiece which yields incredible sustain along with Grover 14:1 tuners for lifetime security.
