Designed to give you an affordable SG that has the backing of the original manufacturers, Gibson, we are given the Epiphone G400 Pro electric guitar. An update on a previous model, this instrument now features Alnico Classic Pro humbucker with all-new coil-tapping.
The Epiphone G-400 Pro utilises the same dimensions as used in the late 1960s at the legendary Kalamazoo factory. This helps to produce a well-balanced guitar, which is incredibly important when you're performing. The body is made from mahogany and the excellent shaping around the body lets you play away with pure comfort.
A set mahogany neck featuring the well-known SlimTaper "D" profile is fitted with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, keeping things true to the original specification this guitar is based on. Classic SG looks are further conveyed with the trapezoid inlays all the way up the fretboard. Wilkinson provide the tuners which have a true vintage look to them while ensuring good stability.
Two Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers are fitted to the Epiphone G-400 Pro with the added capability of coil-tapping. This means you can get some great single-coil tones from this SG model by just using the push-pull volume pots.

This was my first real guitar; I played it exclusively for over 18 months (I got another guitar to add to my collection) and it still plays great over 3 years later. I have had one 'fault', which was fixed free of charge by the branch I bought it in.
It feels great and looks great, plays good too.
At the time I was going to get a cheaper guitar but I was convinced by a friend (and staff) to opt for this. The set neck makes playing and soloing so much more efficient.
The only gripe I have is that it is neck heavy, if you let go of the neck when playing standing the guitar will lose 'balance' and point down instead of up – that’s my only notable problem!
