Product Description

Featuring Alnico Classic PRO pickups and push/pull coil-tapping, the Epiphone G400 PRO Electric Guitar pays tribute to classic SG design but with an added flair that makes it a true player's dream. The Epiphone G400 PRO guitar gives you the sound and look of a real SG without the vintage price tag and with the added tonal variety of single coil tones thanks to its coil tapping!

Epiphone G400 PRO Electric Guitar Features

  • Alnico Classic PRO 4-wire humbuckers for huge tone and great dynamic range
  • Push/pull coil tapping for each pickup via volume knobs for single coil tones
  • Lighter weight Wilkinson Vintage Classic tuners makes it perfectly balanced
  • SlimTaper 'D' profile mahogany neck with a 24.75 inch scale
  • 22 fret rosewood fingerboard with 12 inch radius
Built for Classic SG Performance
The Epiphone G400 PRO is inspired by the late '60s era SGs and uses the same dimensions and build techniques as vintage SGs made in the Kalamazoo, Michigan, factory during that classic era. The solid, tone-rich mahogany carved body gives the G400 PRO a balanced feel on stage and in the studio.

The SlimTaper 'D' profile mahogany neck has a 24.75 inch scale with 22 frets and a 12 inch radius fingerboard for incredible reach thanks to the SG's classic cutaway. And for that one-of-a-kind SG feel, the Epiphone G400 PRO has a rosewood fingerboard with a 1.68 inch nut. The truss rod cover is the classic Kalamazoo bell shape with SG PRO in white.

Alnico Classic PRO Power
Epiphone always finds a way to make improvements on their classic designs and the G400 PRO is no exception. Now featuring Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO 4-wire humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions, the G400 PRO offers a tonal palette that far exceeds any other guitar of its kind. The Alnico Classic PROs feature Alnico V magnets for terrific humbucker sustain with a huge dynamic range that can go from clean to crunch. The G400 PRO features coil-tapping on both pickups via a push/pull control on the pickups’ volume controls.

Epiphone Hardware You Can Trust
Epiphone provides quality, all-metal hardware on all its instruments including full-function volume and tone knobs using full-size 500K ohm potentiometers matched with Epiphone's rugged, all-metal, 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance. The G400 PRO features the famous LockTone bridge and Stopbar tailpiece which yields incredible sustain along with Wilkinson Vintage Classic 14:1 tuners for lifetime security.

The SG Story
When the SG, or 'Solid Guitar' was introduced in 1961 as a replacement for the Les Paul Standard, 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 became the go-to guitar for artists like The Who's Pete Townshend, Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC's Angus Young, Eric Clapton and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band.

Good, but not a Gibson
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
The G400 pro is a nice guitar for someone that doesn't want to fork out the Gibson prices. I like it, very light weight, coil taps, and the finish is great. Does not have the tone and the feel I prefer.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
For being a bargain SG, it is ok. Don't expect it to be out of this world.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It is LIGHT! I picked up an Epiphone Les Paul and this and the weight difference feels like 2-1. Controls are easier to switch to on the G400 then the L.P.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Getting the G400 pro I am going for an AC/DC sound. It will be harder to get that tone with this, so I might change out the pickups down the road.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The Cherry finish is definitely a great look on this guitar. Not having dot inlays on the neck is also a plus.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
For the price it is a good value for the added feature of the coil-taps. Still getting use to the guitar.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Action is not too bad. Some tweaking will be required.
