The G-400 is one of Epiphone’s most sought after guitars – for obvious reasons. It’s modelled on one of Gibson’s most iconic designs, and indeed one of the most recognisable guitars of all time: the SG Standard in Vintage Cherry. A couple of tweaks ensure this one stands out from the crowd, however…

Body & Neck
As with many of Epiphone and Gibson’s classic models, it’s a Mahogany double-bill. Mahogany has been the tonewood of choice for SGs for decades. It offers a full-bodied warmth with plenty of low end, and of course that legendary sustain.

One of the standout features is the stunning flame maple top. This adds a contrasting luxury to an otherwise subtle design. The maple addition also adds a top-end sheen to the sound, perfectly suited to snarling lead playing. A slim taper neck profile with subtle body contouring keeps ergonomics in mind.

Electronics & Hardware
The G-400 is equipped with Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers in the both bridge and neck positions. These are hot enough for modern genres, but clean up and smooth out when you roll off the gain. Classic SG tone, but not quite as you know it; you also get push-pull coil splitting. Combined with a 3-way pickup selector and individual volume/tone controls, the G-400 Deluxe PRO conceals a surprisingly versatile tonal toolkit.

Gold hardware, Pearloid Trapezoid inlays and Wilkinson Vintage Classic tuners finish it all off with stunning finesse. While it retains elements of the original design, this is a truly standout instrument in the Epiphone range.

I bought one of these recently are they are fantastic value (though I wish I had been able to pick one up at this price). Lovely neck and pickups sounds great and very versatile with the coil-tapping. Was always holding out for a Gibson Les Paul, but couldn't resist one of these after trying one!

Same price at GUITARGUITAR but less colour choice.

Sounds like a decent spec electric guitar for the money.
250-300 everywhere? What's the big deal?

They had been sat at about £299 for quite a while, and noticed the drop to £249 which I think is pretty decent for what you get - I'd imagine quite a few retailers will follow suit since they will often price match each other anyway.
Beautiful guitar. Wish I had a spare £250!

yes this hasn't been below £299 anywhere over the last who knows when...good spot
I had one of these for a while, it was a really good guitar, i replaced it eventually with a Gibson SG which i play through a Vox valve amp, I wish i hadn't bothered, the G400 sounded and played as good as it's "big brother"
I have this paid £359!. Don't regret it though. Bargain at this price!

Wow! Honey burst was £259 at PMT when I posted this, that's a steal.
Can someone please explain to an 'old-timer', who hasn't bought or played a guitar for 20+ years, what coil-tapping is?
Thanks in advance.

Coil splitting basically allows you to "split" humbucking (typical on a Les Paul for example) pickups in two so they behave like single coil pickups (like you'd find on a Strat). Gives you flexibility and variety of how your guitar sounds.

I just learned that there is often confusion between the terms coil-splitting which is as above, and cool-tapping which allows switching between a higher and lower output on single coil pickups. Looks like people use those terms interchangeably and I hadn't realised this. But yeah, in this case the picckups can behave like humbuckers or single coil.

Many thanks.
Actually, it's a Les Paul I actually want - never had one (not even a cheap copy) - but I did have an SG copy that got nicked at a gig. Partly my fault I suppose as I'd put 'Gibson' on the head in self-adhesive lettering

Gutted!

I had actually never considered an SG style until I tried the G400 but really liked how it feels. I've always wanted a Gibson Les Paul but always seem to end up buying other things instead of holding out!

The Epiphone Les Paul models are worth a look at least, I think they've upped the quality in more recent times so I was surprised.
