Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? only had it for a week but it seems to hold up well. nothing has broken, no wear, and most of all it still sounds great! General Your general opinion of this product. I feel this guitar is very well made, will withstand anything i try on it, and is all around a great guitar. Ive played many Gibsons as well as some epis, and theyre all really great guitars. they really know what theyre doing in the factories. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The pickups on the faded g400 are great. heavy fat tones then a flip of the switch and you have bright and snappy tones. these same pickups are on my epi les paul ultra2 and i loved them on that, so when i saw they were on this i knew it was going to sounds great. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I love the faded look it has to it. makes it look awesome and leaves no finger prints anywhere! the neck is super slippery and it makes it nice and fast for solos.
It's a good guitar for the price. It's a player.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I think this guitar is well made for the most part. But hey for the price, it does meet my expectations. General Your general opinion of this product. Overall, I think this guitar is a good deal for the It's pretty much a no-frills unit, but that's OK, as the description does not lead one to have high expectations as compared to that of a Gibson SG. It is a solid unit by Epi. Given that, I'm happy with this guitar. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Tone is what you would expect. It has some snap, but is also good for someone who likes to play blues. No complaints here. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Finish....it holds true to what Epiphone advertises. Again, no frills, but I like it.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? To make this so inexpensive im sure the mass production has a lot to do with the low price. They are about half hand made, half machine. I had a lengthy conversation with a Epiphone Rep at a Music Convention here in Denver. They have really stepped up their over seas quality control and have a new factory for the Epi Les Paul & SG lines. Cheap labor unfortunately plays a big factor aswell. But the finished product is outstanding for the low cost. General Your general opinion of this product. I've owned this for about 2 years now purchased right here at AmericanMusical and I swear it sounds better and better everytime I play it. So overall, I am very impressed. It has physically held up quite well as I have definitely put it through the ringer. This thing can take a beating and stay in tune. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Bright, thick, warm, crunchy... whatever you want. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Its simple which is just fine with me. I actually like it because it looks better once you beat it up a little. Im not much for polishing so the finish is a non factor. Im all about playability and sound.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It is well made as best as I can assess and It feels like it will live forever. General Your general opinion of this product. This is as close to a Gibson SG as I could get. I have no regrets. It plays smoothly and is a great beginner guitar. I have a friend teaching me and he loves the guitar. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I like the sound from the 60's...Clapton, Allmans etc. and it does well with the amp limitation and my skill level. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Excellent. Love the faded vintage look.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Epiphone uses really good parts, and doesn't cut corners like other companies tend to do. The Grover tuners keep it in tune, and that is a wonderful thing! At this price point, it's amazing the quality of the instrument that you are getting. Trust me, you won't be disappointed! General Your general opinion of this product. This is a great guitar! I received this as a gift for my birthday, and I couldn't be happier! This is my first SG, and I'm in love with it. I've had such a nice experience with Epiphone, that I will continue to be loyal to the brand in the future. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I love the tone. I had it in my mind that I would need to upgrade the pickups. However, now I realize, I don't really need to. The neck pickup will give you Slash sounding blues tones, and the neck is hot enough to cover Dimebag Darrell like tones. Need I say more? Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I chose the Worn Brown finish, and I love it! It has a Satin finish, so it is really easy to clean, and maintain. Gibson told me that all you need to do to clean it is usa a slightly damp 100% cotton cloth. No finger prints like on glossy finishes. It was a perfect choice for me!
