The Epiphone G-310 electric guitar in ebony bears all the hallmarks of the classic SG with its double-cutaway 'devil-horn' body shape, super-fast playing neck, and impressive tonal versatility with tonnes of power. If you've always an SG but are mindful of your budget, this is the model you've been waiting for.
The body is built from mahogany, which is the tonewood of choice for models that require a thumping energy with excellent sustain - qualities the G-310 has by the bucket-load. The slim body profile adheres to the classic SG shape, making it just as comfortable to wield. Finished in a distinctive and unapologetically cool ebony finish - with matching black pickguard - the G-310 looks as awesome as it sounds. Fitted to the body is a LockTone tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, a hardware pairing that works meticulously to create a seamless connection between the strings and body for optimum intonation and string tension.
Fitted to the body is a bolt-on mahogany neck, which has been shaped to the SlimTaper "D" profile. Paired with the neck is a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with dot position inlays. The 24.75" scale length, combined with the 12" fingerboard radius makes this setup a sheer delight to play. Each fret is readily accessible thanks to the body and neck profile partnership. At the top of the neck, the headstock bears premium die-cast tuners that carry out the task of maintaining tuning integrity to perfection.
The Epiphone G-310 is equipped with 650R and 700T humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions respectively. Control comes in the for of individual volume pots for each pickup, as well as individual tone pots, all of which have 500kOhm potentiometers to guarantee smooth adjustments are made, no matter how slowly or quickly the pots are rotated. Whether you're looking to play some ludicrously epic rock, or smoothly slide your way through some Derek Trucks-style blues, then this pair of humbuckers has your tonal needs covered.
The Epiphone G-310 provides the tone and the look that has inspired musicians for years, and will continue to for years to come.
