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 'em: a 490R in the neck position and a 498T at the bridge. You get uncompromising power whether you're playing rhythm or digging into a solo.

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.

MrStitch Lefty SG

The best lefty guitar i have ever played! I own many old Gibsons and Fenders! that have small size necks. The G-400 SG Pro has big and mean monster frets! Plus Tone controls that let you that will let you play clean and and Big to change the sound from Strat to Gibson with a easy pull up tone knob.

Wonderful guitar for a son...

My son is a lefty, and finding good instruments he can use is difficult at best. Sweetwater had the exact guitar I was looking for and at a great price. I an extremely happy with the transaction, customer service, and the salesman I worked with. I am sure to do business with them again.

...Upgraded hardware, classy looks, versatile pickups, and coil tapping make it one hell of a value for gigging players who hate the hassle of multiple instruments....
