Happiness is a warm SG
Huge thanks to Sweetwater and Jon Krempel for the sweet hook-up on this beauty. A thorough 55 point inspection and set-up, brought this guitar to my door with only a minor string tune-up necessary. Expert packing and care made me smile like the Cheshire Cat when I unwrapped it.
Everything about this guitar screams "tight as a drum". Couldn't get the tubes on my amps warmed up fast enough to go for my first rip on the SG Pro.
Words can't convey how beautiful it actually is. SG soul to the core!!! It's light weight is betrayed by it's heavy roar. What a diamond!!! I love going between my 2 Blackstar and vintage Ampeg rigs with it.
You're not going to find a better player at this price. Side by side with a Gibson SG Standard, this Epiphone SG holds its own and then some.
My much more expensive Gibson LP Studio Deluxe just got demoted to the number 2 slot in my Guitar chain, and that is not an exaggeration.
Play-ability is ridiculous. 22 frets are perfect for me. Grover tuners keep tune through some pretty aggressive strumming and string bends and the coil tapping makes me question how this mahogany body guitar out of the Epiphone Custom shop retails for such a steal. Alnico pick-ups explode with life and I am getting no hum, or hiss to speak of. No fret buzz as well. Pretty much all of the stuff I hear Epiphone getting knocked around for in reviews is non-existent in this guitar.
I'm so stoked with this beautiful guitar, and it's by far the least amount of money I have ever spent on an axe. Thank You Jon Krempel and Sweetwater once again for being the conduit to my happiness!!!
