Legendary Rock Machine

The Epiphone G-400 Pro 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 that is known for its sustain and fat tone. Just ask Pete Townshend of the Who, Angus Young of AC/DC, 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, SlimTaper neck, and separate volume and tone controls for each of the high-output humbuckers, the Epiphone G-400 Pro delivers the bite, tone, and comfort you need for serious rockin'.

Epiphone G-400 Pro Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • A classic electric guitar
  • Fast-playing neck
  • Fat, smoking humbuckers
A classic electric guitar

The Epiphone G-400 Pro solidbody electric guitar has a fascinating backstory. 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 original Mahavishnu Orchestra. The Epiphone G-400 Pro continues the tradition - with amazing affordability.

Fast-playing neck

The Epiphone G-400 Pro has a SlimTaper mahogany neck. Early Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960 the neck underwent several modifications until it became what's known as the SlimTaper 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, then you'll love the Epiphone G-400 Pro.

Fat, smoking humbuckers

The Epiphone G-400 Pro 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? Forget all those thin out-of-phase guitar sounds that session players overused in the 1980s and (sad to say) right through much of the '90s. That's not for you. Your sound is all about the warmth, punch, and midrange complexity you can only get from a pair of humbuckers. The Epiphone G-400 Pro comes with a pair of Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers. You get uncompromising power whether you're playing rhythm or digging into a solo.

Absolutely Amazing!!

My dreams have come true! Absolutely amazing guitar. The fit and finish are flawless. Plays like a dream thanks to the Sweetwater 55 Point Evaluation. Great low action, frets are smooth, fantastic intonation. No buzzing. They saved me a good chunk of change just by not having to do a setup, it's that good right out of the box. A shout out to Sweetwater and Anthony my Sales Engineer. They really take care of you, it's not just hype. Can't say enough how great the guitar looks and sounds. I play it through an Orange Micro Dark and Orange 112 cab also purchased from Sweetwater. Combined, it's the best tone I've ever had, easily. Tony Iommi would be proud. Sabbath / Crunch / Doom tone for days. I'm a bedroom player and my quest has finally ended. Us lefty's don't get a fair shake with guitar choices but this is the one for me. If you're on the fence, don't hesitate. This guitar is a no brainer; and buy it from Sweetwater!

Great Value!

Number one, this is a beautiful guitar. It is very light weight but sturdy construction. The neck fits my hand prefectly and makes it easy for power chords. On top of that you have the option of single coil or humbuckers just by pulling up or pushing down the volume control for each coil. When I ordered this guitar I didn't expect to have this option for the price I was paying. I like the Wilkerson tuners as well. They give it a vintage look but are just as good as groovers as for staying in tune. To me with my experience Goover makes the best tuners you realy couldn't ask for any better. And considering the price point who needs a Gibson with this kind of quality your only paying for a name. If a SG is what your lusting for then look no further unless you just have to have that name. Really it can't be any better than this.

Excellent Pro Quality Guitar

This is a great guitar. Just because it doesnt say "Gibson" doesnt mean its not a quality instrument. The out of the box feel and setup was great. The guitar sounded splendid acoustically and had a nice solid feel to it. The stock pickups are very good. For me, they are too low output. They are vintage style and tone, and the windings suggest low-output. For me, I like higher output pickups. I will likely keep the neck pickup but I want more output from the bridge. I don't play with a lot of gain, and therefore I get most of my crunch from the pickup and amplifier volume. The bridge pickup in this G-400 is excellent, but it doesn't push my amp enough. I would need to increase the amp's gain (noisy in a vintage amp) or boost it with a pedal; neither of which I want to do. So, in the near future I will swap the pickup out for a Seymour Duncan JB. The pots and switch were solid and offered excellent feel and range. I don't feel the need to replace them at all. They are quiet and have a nice tension to them. The stock strings will get swapped with my personal choice. This guitar comes with push-pull pots for the pickups (to make them single coil). This is a really nice feature. As I mentioned, the pickups are low-output and to me, in single coil mode, sound thin on my amp setup. That is strictly my opinion on my amp with its low gain. Moving to a higher output pickup will thicken the crunch and make the single coil sound a little more beefy. Tuning and intonation were fine. I had no problems tuning the guitar, playing the heck out of it, leaving it for two days in my studio and returning to find the guitar still in tune. I will not be replacing the tuners or nut any time soon. The fretboard feels nice. The frets are level and from the factory the neck is straight. Overall this is a solid instrument that, from the factory, is excellent. Great tone, nice feel, solid construction. For me personally I will swap the bridge pickup. Other than that, I am leaving the guitar stock - it's that good. Tuning stability is great. Fit and finish are top notch. The wood grain on my particular guitar looks sweet. Good job Epiphone!

A Happy Lefty

Fantastic guitar, awesome tech reps, perfect setup. Came very nearly perfectly tuned out of the box, and the intonation was almost perfect on all but the E and B strings, ever so slightly. Had an S101 guitars brand version of the SG, this blows it out of the water, completely. Love the ability to switch to single coil pickups for riffs that don't need quite so much grit. Definitely looking for more things I "need" from sweetwater.
