Epiphone honors the historic SG, one of the most original designs in rock, with the Ltd. Ed. “1966” G-400 PRO, which now features Alnico Classic PRO™ pickups and push/pull coil-splitting. The original SG not only rivaled guitars of its own era for sonic variety but also proved to be a sign of things to come. Scores of rock, hard rock and metal guitarists embraced the original SG and made it a classic. Now, the Ltd. Ed. “1966” G-400 PRO gives you the sound and look of a vintage SG without the vintage price tag but with the added tonal variety that you’ve come to expect from Epiphone.
When the SG, or “Solid Guitar,” was introduced in 1960 as a replacement for the Les Paul Standard, it was called the “fretless wonder” for its low frets and fast action. The twin horn cutaway design was like nothing on the market and its light but balanced weight made it the perfect guitar for stage and studio work. The powerful sound of a humbucker equipped SG has became the go-to guitar for artists such as The Who’s Pete Townshend, Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC’s Angus Young, Eric Clapton and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band.
