Epiphone SG G-400 PRO CH

Electric Guitar

Sure, Angus of AC/DC probably even takes his to bed, and also the young Eric Clapton - at that time with Cream - as well as Mick Taylor with the Rolling Stones, who used an SG and created a good many classics. Not quite as tight in the bass as its sister Paula, but very lively and also aggressive. Blues sounds can also be elicited - especially with the pickup in the neck. On these points, the G400 comes very close to the much more expensive original. Add to all that the appearance: Mahogany in cherry red, and that's about it!

By the way, this is perfect for those who want an additional instrument for playing slide guitar - Duane Allmann knew this all too well

First Electric

Simon C, 25.10.2017
I've dabbled with acoustics over the years but finally went for it. Always wanted an SG since I was a kid, but still couldn't justify a Gibson. Having seen a lot of reviews suggesting that nowadays the Epiphone quality was up there with the original (same company), I went for it. Thomann provided a great service availability/price/shipping etc.

The guitar is beautiful, the lacquer finish is fabulous, take it out into the sunlight and it glows and lets the wood grain show through. Chrome-wear all looks great and appears to be of a decent quality. As a novice I think the guitar plays really nicely. It seems well set up with a good low action - I tried taking it lower out of curiosity, didn't work, they got it right in the factory. All frets play well. I chose the Pro because I liked the idea of the "coil tapping", I was a little concerned about the reputation of richer sounding humbuckers. I prefer to finger pick and like the brighter Strat sound, Knopfler/Gilmore etc, I know but I wanted an SG! The coil tapping creates loads of options and lets me tick that box.

To sum up, very happy with the finish/ playability/sound and a great price. I marked down quality slightly because I find some of the black plastic trim and screws a little "cheap" - but then I've never had a close look at a Gibson.

Only problem now is playing it without getting fingerprints all over the glorious cherry lacquer ! And well done Thomann, thanks.

Updated model is quite good

Atanas T, 14.12.2018
So I recently bought this stunning looking guitar while it was marketed with the old no binding, rosewood fingerboard, and maple venire on both the front and the back of the guitar (gave it a kinda streaky look). And I was quote surprised to find mine had binding on it so a quick Google search later revealed that Epi have simply updated the g-400 pro.

However I am not at all disappointed with the update, the binding is done really well, looks amazing, and will protect your fretboard from fret sprout, so it's better than the old one in this regard.

As to the Pau Ferro fingerboard, its decent, I have to note that on my SG it looks slightly darker, and doesn't have that orange-ish tint that the photos of it may lead you to believe. Pau Ferro feels nice, it's quite a dense hardwood and it makes for perfect substitution of rosewood.

The guitar sounds amazingly, the bridge pickup is bright, has a nice full sound and when you put some overdrive on, it let's out such a nice rock tone. Seriously a friend of mine has a Epi LP custom pro that doesnt sound as good, with the overdrive on. The neck pickup is middle of the pack sounds good for some lead but it kinda lacks a tad bit more sharpness, however when you coil tap the neck and select the middle position you can get a really good strategy sound, even some strat 'quack' out of it with the right settings. Really versatile sound.

The neck feel and playability is good, however I can see people having mixed feeling about it: the neck is thin, however it's slightly wider than per say the Angus Young SG (we are talking about a 3mm difference here) which combined with the slim taper D neck profile(which on it's own it's quite comfortable) makes it feel kinda wierd, it has some slightly more spacing between the strings which makes playing chords and lead easier, however the wider mech and the D shape makes it slightly awkward to play with your thumb over the fretboard, so rhythm playing might be just right or kinda weird depending if you play with your thumb over or not. Lead however is just perfect, neck is thin and really nice to pinch, more string spacing helps with lead playing for me at least. The only way it could improve is if the neck was satin finished.

Pros:
- the guitar sounds amazing, the bridge pickup is bright, and has a really full, pleasant sound.
- the finish is perfect, no imperfections and you can even make out some nice patterns of the gorgeous mahogany underneath.
-Playability is quite good too. Nice reach to the upper frets and a nice slim neck.
-Electronics are genuine, pots feel smooth and the switch is clicky.

Cons:
-neck can be weird for some people
-has slight neck dive, more of a neck drift(typical SG problem)
- the nut on the jack slot has a tendency to screw itself out.

I would recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a new rock 'n roll axe, it's nice build quality and great sound. The only thing stopping me from giving it full on recommendations is the neck, you really gotta feel it to know if you'd like it, I find it nice and comfy however. Great axe!
