Legendary Rock Machine

The Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 solidbody electric guitar is a faithful reproduction of the legendary Gibson SG. One of rock 'n' roll's mainstays since the beginning, the SG is a lean, mean music machine is known for its sustain and fat tone. Just ask Pete Townshend of the Who, Angus Young of ACDC or Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath - and don't forget the legendary SG Double Neck that Jimmy Page favored for Led Zeppelin's live performances of Stairway to Heaven! With its solid mahogany body, slim taper neck, and separate volume and tone controls for each of the high-output humbuckers, the Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 delivers the bite, tone and comfort you need for serious rockin'.

A Classic Electric Guitar

The Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 solidbody electric guitar has a fascinating back story. It's hard to believe that by 1961, Gibson decided to discontinue the original Les Paul guitar. Their motivation is unclear. Weak sales? The urge to try something new? In any case, the first SGs were actually called Les Pauls, but Les himself wasn't in favor of that for a variety of reasons. So, in a bold move, this solid guitar was renamed SG, which stood for, uh, solid guitar. A few years later, Gibson started making the original Les Pauls again, but the SG proved so popular that they kept making them. The reason is easy to understand. It's actually quite a cool looking instrument, delivering the classic humbucker sound for people who don't particularly want or need a Les Paul. The SG is also a much lighter-weight instrument, yet it doesn't cut corners. You still get the mahogany body and a pair of hot humbuckers that deliver all the warm, fat tone you could ever want. The SG is thought of as the archetypal rock guitar, but it's actually used across all genres of music; its double-necked incarnation is only guitar John McLaughlin ever used in live performance with the Mahavishnu Orchestra. The Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 continues the tradition - with amazing affordability.

Fast-playing Neck

The Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 has a slim-taper mahogany neck. Early Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960 the neck underwent several modifications until it became what's known as the slim-taper design. The SG took it one step farther, making the neck among the fastest ever designed. Hey, Frank Zappa played one and the guy had some wicked chops. If you like the combination of a fast mahogany neck and the warmth of a rosewood fingerboard, you'll love the Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400.

Fat, Smoking Humbuckers

The Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 packs humbucking power. When you really want to cook on a solo or deliver some thunderous power chords, you reach for a guitar that's got a pair of humbuckers, right? The Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 comes with a pair of 'em: an Alnico Classic in the neck position and an Alnico Classic Plus at the bridge. You get uncompromising power, whether you're playing rhythm or digging into a solo. And push/pull pots split each pickup into single-coil mode for classic spanky tones. Take it from the Sweetwater crew - the Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 is an extremely versatile guitar that's ready for any gig!
