Epiphone G-400 Pro SG

The G-400 Pro provides rock, hard rock and metal fans an affordable and versatile guitar in the familiar twin-horn SG shape.

This guitar is inspired by late '60s era SGs and follows the same dimensions and construction that were used in Kalamazoo, Michigan when they were building the now vintage SGs.

The body is made of carved solid mahogany which gives the guitar a balanced feel, unlike cheap knock offs which tend to have heavier necks. The headstock is equipped with lighter Wilkinson Vintage Classic tuners to further ensure balance. The headstock also features a Kalamazoo bell shaped truss rod cover with SG PRO written in white.

The neck is made of mahogany and has a SlimTaper D profile with a 24.75" scale. It has 22 medium jumbo frets with a 12" radius and the familiar cutaway convenience of SG body shapes. The fretboard is made of rosewood and is measured at 1.68" at the nut.

The G-400 Pro comes equipped with Epiphone Alnico Classic Pro 4-wire humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions. These pickups feature Alnico V magnets that mimics the humbucker sustain and range of classic SGs. Its coil-tapping feature lets you achieve further tonal variety by simple pushing and pulling the volume controls.

The guitar comes with 500K potentiometer volume and tone knobs controlled by a 3-way pickup selector switch. It has Epiphone's LockTone bridge and Stopbar tailpiece which helps improve sustain and keeps the guitar in tune.

Thanks for spotting that mix-up. I have corrected the fret information and replaced the G400 Pro image.
