UTILIZATION

This guitar is Epiphone's version of Gibson's SG design, which came out in 1960-61. The Epi has a thicker finish than the old Gibson, being a polyurethane coat instead of a nitrocellulose, and the neck has a different feel, as well as a different heel on the back. These are not bad things - the poly finish will be more durable, and the price point suggests that more kids will be playing these. Kids need a durable guitar, as they can be a bit clumsy with taking care of them. And the neck heel and feel seem a bit more robust as well, so this is a plus. The guitar plays easily enough, and with the tuneamatic bridge, it is very easy to setup with good action.

SOUNDS

The G-400 sounds nice, like an older SG, but with a bit less bite and smoothness from the different pickup settings. Of course, I'm comparing these Epi pickups to original T-Top Gibson humbuckers, so the comparison is not exactly fair - those original Gibson pickups were sublime. But these Epiphone humbuckers do the job very convincingly and admirably. Nearly any genre - rock, blues, metal, even jazz - they all can be represented well with these pickups.

OVERALL OPINION

For the price, this guitar is a great deal. Anyone picking this for a first, second, or backup guitar will not be disappointed. 9 out of 10 overall.
