A classic SG profile with a modern twist, this guitar looks impeccable with its unique finish and retro styling. Packing powerful electronics and premium hardware at a more than reasonable cost, this guitar will be right at home in any collection.
Mahogany 'Horns' Body
The iconic 'horns' design of the SG is present here with a AAA Flame Maple Veneer Top and a Solid Mahogany body underneath the lustrous paint job to ensure warmth of tone and incredible sustain. Known for being a versatile workhorse the SG is comfortable with an assortment of styles, so whether you're playing metal, hard rock or even jazz this guitar can handle it all.
Asymmetrical Slim Taper Neck
Continuing with a more modern theme this guitar has an Asymmetrical Slim Taper neck which means on the bass side of the neck the profile is thicker whereas the treble side is thinner to promote fast playing. A contoured neck heel is also present allowing you to reach the upper register with ease, great for searing lead work. The neck is composed of Mahogany to match the body, ensuring fantastic resonance throughout the entire guitar. The 24-fret fretboard is comprised of Ebony which feels lavish under your fingers, marked by Pearl Trapezoid Inlays.
Two ProBucker Pickups deliver crisp and articulate tones, perfect for rock and the styles around it. There's no mud here, these pickups translate your playing in a clear fashion with a nice high output. The bridge pickup excels in the midrange whilst the neck gives plenty of body, with detailed low end and a bit of percussive treble tone. CTS Electronics with a 50s style wiring harness ensure that vintage tone abounds here, with a three way pickup selector plus two volume and tone knobs giving you plenty of scope for sonic sculpting. There's also coil-splitting and phase switch options accessible via push/pull knobs so a plethora of tone sculpting options are available for you to feast your ears on.
The SG Modern Figured has a LockTone ABR Tune-o-Matic bridge with a Stopbar tailpiece to ensure fantastic intonation and an easily adjustable action. Working in conjunction with the Grover Locking Rotomatic tuners with Tulip Buttons and an 18:1 ratio, you get tuning stability that won't let you down no matter how hard you strum.
The Epiphone SG Modern Figured Electric Guitar in Trans Black Fade takes everything that was great about the original SG and amplifies it, making a modern classic out of a versatile workhorse guitar. Powerful electronics ensure that the tone-hounds out there will find something to love about this guitar, whilst the stunning finish will lure guitarists in, sure to turn heads whether you're rocking our on stage or laying down guitar lines in the studio.
