EPIPHONE™ G400 PRO SG ELECTRIC GUITAR - ALPINE WHITE
Stock code: EPIEGGPAWNH1
Featuring Alnico Classic PRO™ Humbuckers with Coil-Tapping
The G-400 PRO honours the original 1960s classic “SG” (Solid Guitar) and features Alnico Classic PRO™ humbuckers with push/pull coil-splitting plus Wilkinson™ Vintage Classic Machine Heads. Available in Cherry and Ebony colour finishes.
Classic 60s Era “Solid Guitar”
The modern G-400 PRO is inspired by the first generation of SGs made in the 1960s at the legendary Gibson and Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan that produced the Les Paul and the Casino.
The SG model was originally intended to replace the Les Paul, which temporarily went out of production from 1961-1968.
The new G-400 PRO is constructed using the same dimensions and build techniques as vintage SGs and features a Mahogany body and neck with a comfortable 1960's SlimTaper™ ‘D’ profile and a 24.75” scale length.
The Pau Ferro fingerboard has pearloid Trapezoid inlays, 22 medium jumbo frets, a 12” radius, and an adjustable truss rod with a ‘bell’ cover.
Alnico Classic PRO™ Humbuckers with Coil Splitting
The G-400 PRO features Alnico Classic PRO™ humbuckers made with Alnico-V magnets, which produce a slightly higher output especially in the mids and highs. Each pickup has it own Volume and Tone control with full-size 500K Ω potentiometers matched with Epiphone’s rugged, all-metal, 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance. Each pickup also is wired for coil-tapping. By pulling up the pickup’s volume knob, the humbucker will become a “single-coil” pickup, allowing players an infinite variety of tones from single-coil bark to full humbucker bite.
When winding humbuckers, Epiphone utilises a double vacuum waxing process that ensures quiet operation free from microphonic hum. The pickup is first placed in the specialised wax vacuuming system before the cover is placed on the unit to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very centre of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed on, it is again given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated with wax. Epiphone also uses high quality ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, the finest magnet wire available.
Solid Epiphone Hardware
The G-400 PRO features Epiphone’s legendary LockTone™ bridge and Stopbar tailpiece for incredible sustain along with Wilkinson™ Vintage Classic Machine Heads with a 18:1 tuning ratio. The G-400 PRO comes in classic Cherry (CH) or Ebony (EB) finish. A left-handed model is available in Cherry (CH). A hard case is available through Authorised Epiphone Dealers.
