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 Pau Ferro fingerboard with a 1.68 inch nut. The truss rod cover is the classic Kalamazoo bell shape with SG PRO in white.

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.
