Epiphone honors the historic SG with the G-400 PRO, which now features Alnico Classic PRO pickups and push/pull coil-tapping. 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. Scores of rock, hard rock and metal guitarists embraced the original SG and made it a classic. Now, the G-400 PRO gives you the sound and look of a real SG at an affordable price.
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.
Built for Classic SG Performance
The G-400 PRO is inspired by the late '60s era SGs, both a player's and collector's favorite, 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 guitar a balanced feel on stage and in the studio (unlike cheap imitations that tend to be neck-heavy). The Wilkinson Vintage Classic tuners are also light-weight which makes your G-400 PRO feel perfectly balanced 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 for incredible reach thanks to the SG's classic cutaway. And for that one-of-a-kind SG feel, the G-400 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.
Alnico Classic PRO Power
Epiphone always finds a way to make improvements on their classic designs and the G-400 PRO is no exception. Now featuring Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO 4-wire humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions, the G-400 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 at a touch. And now, the G-400 PRO features coil-tapping on both pickups via a push/pull control on the pickups' volume controls.
Epiphone Hardware You Can Trust
Epiphone leads the way in manufacturing great-sounding guitars for players of all levels and that goes for their great hardware, too. Epiphone provides quality, all-metal hardware on all its instruments including full-function volume and tone knobs using full-size 500K potentiometers matched with Epiphone's rugged, all-metal, 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance. The G-400 PRO features Epiphone's famous LockTone bridge and Stopbar tailpiece which yields incredible sustain along with Wilkinson Vintage Classic 14:1 tuners for lifetime security.
