Product Description

This Epiphone Worn G-400 Electric Guitar looks like it truly is straight out of 1962, with a gently worn finish. The satiny Worn Cherry or Worn Brown body gives the look and feel of a prized vintage high-fret access instrument, in an all-new package. All Mahogany, carved construction with a set, Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard and a true vintage tone thanks to high-output Alnico Classic Humbuckers, each with its own volume and tone controls. Our new LockTone locking Tune-o-matic and Stopbar hardware amp up the sustain and tone even more.

From the Manufacturer

Epiphone Worn G-400 SG Guitar

Epihphone's Edition of the Iconic 1962 Gibson SG

The Epiphone Worn G-400 is truly one of the best guitar values you will find today. A truly iconic guitar, this edition of the 1962 SG has incredible sustain and features two beautiful finishes, Worn Cherry and Worn Brown, along with an 'aged' fingerboard. Every serious player wants an SG and here's the real thing that sounds as good as it looks. 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. Hard rock, metal and scores of rockers embraced the original SG and made it a classic. Now, the Worn G-400 gives you the sound and look of a real worn-in SG without the vintage price tag.

The SG Story

When the SG or "Solid Guitar" was introduced in 1961 as a replacement for the Les Paul, 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. Later '60s models introduced the SG with humbucker pickups, and since then, the SG has become the go-to guitar for artists like The Who's Pete Townshend, Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC's Angus Young, Eric Clapton and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band.

Built for Classic SG Performance

The Worn G-400 is inspired by the 1962 SG, both a player's and collector's favorite, and uses the same dimensions and build techniques as vintage SGs made in the Kalamazoo factory during that classic era. The solid tone-rich mahogany carved body gives the guitar a balanced feel on stage and in the studio (unlike cheap imitations that tend to be neck-heavy). The SlimTaper "D" profile mahogany neck has a 24.75" scale with 22 frets and a 12" radius for incredible reach thanks to the SG's classic cutaway. And for that one-of-a-kind vintage SG feel, the Worn G-400 has an 'aged' rosewood fingerboard with a 1.68" nut.

Epiphone always finds a way to make subtle but important improvements on its classic designs and the Worn G-400 is no exception. It features high output Alnico Classic (neck) and Alnico Classic Plus (bridge) humbuckers that give the Worn G-400 a tonal palette that far exceeds any other guitar of its kind. Modern manufacturing techniques ensure that the Worn G-400's pickups and electronics will not diminish over time and will rock as long as you can.

Epiphone Hardware You Can Trust

Epiphone leads the way in manufacturing in making great sounding guitars for players of all levels and that goes for great hardware, too. Epiphone provides quality all-metal hardware on all its instruments including full function volume and tone knobs using full-size 500K O potentiometers matched with Epiphone's rugged all-metal 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance. The Worn G-400 features the famous LockTone bridge and Stopbar tailpiece which yields incredible sustain along with Grover 14:1 tuners for lifetime security. You can choose The Worn G-400 comes in classic Worn Cherry or Worn Brown.

About Epiphone

Epiphone is one of American's oldest and most revered instrument makers and since 1873, Epiphone has made instruments for every style of popular music. The name evokes both history and the spirit of invention. Epiphone has been an audible presence in every great musical era from the mandolin craze of the early 1900s to jazz age guitars of the 1920s. From swing-era archtops through post-war pop, jazz, R&B, and early rock n' roll. From the "British Invasion" to heavy metal, punk, grunge, and thrash. And now, in the 21st century, new Epiphone technical breakthroughs such as the ProBucker pickup, series parallel switching, built-in KillSwitch pots, the Shadow NanoFlex and NanoMag pickup systems, and premier acoustic/electric guitars with the eSonic preamp have brought the historic name to a new generation.

Color: Brown Satin
I started playing guitar about 8 years ago as a hobby. Back then, I bought an acoustic guitar for it's simplicity and warmth and learned the basics. Being self-taught, I am no rock star, I just enjoy the instrument. My ability hit a plateau and I started to get bored/discouraged with the guitar. I decided to buy an electric because I though the ease of expression and playability might encourage me. I have always loved reggae music and was after a specific sound. Also, I didn't want to spend a ton of $ since I am not in a band or anything, like I said, it's just a hobby.

I have always liked the SG style but didn't know much about them. I played a G-400 at a store and was impressed with the tone and feel. I compared it to the $600 Epiphone model and found the stats almost identical. I then compared it to a $1200 gibson SG and honestly, the difference was negligible. I am no expert but I almost preferred the feel of the $300 Epiphone. Also, I really like the worn red finish, it looks great and feels really nice. I also played a fender stratocaster but the G-400 was the one that 'spoke' to me. So, I hesitantly laid down the dough and brought it home. I have had it for a month now and I am so impressed. The fit and finish, the playability, the tone, the versatility, and the feel of this guitar have all exceeded every expectation. I am playing now more than ever and having a great time experimenting with the different settings and sounds, playing along with my favorite reggae music and nailing down some concepts that eluded me on the acoustic for some reason.

In summation: electric guitars are expensive, in general, and while $300 is a lot of money, this is a great guitar for the price. It is easy to play, versatile, elegant and a lot of fun. I am looking forward to years of enjoyment from this instrument.

Color: Worn Cherry
I purchased this guitar from Musician's Friend on Amazon. Due to some trouble, I had to wait for it for a couple of months. It finally is in my hands and I must say I'm impressed and absolutely satisfied. There's plenty of good reviews of this guitar on the web, so I refer you to those for the features; instead, I want to focus on the quality of the product itself. There is some concern among guitarists about buying instruments online, with random reports about people receiving badly constructed specimens of supposedly quality guitars. It hasn't been my case. This guitar has been known, since it was first released, for being a big improvement in quality for Epiphone, and for being the closest reproduction of a 1961 Gibson SG, for less than a third of the price. The one I received from MF and Amazon completely lives up to such fame: completely solid, flawless construction; gorgeous looks and quality appointments; and above all, near professional performance. Like any guitar that comes new out of the box, it required some action and intonation setup, but that was all: no flaws at all in the general construction or in the finish.

A few comments on the features.
The playability is amazing. The neck has the same satin finish as the body; it's wide and flat but not annoyingly fat or thick; and it joins the body at the 20th fret, giving free access to the last frets. All this makes for a lightning fast playing guitar.
The sound is just great. The pickups are hot, they can really give you that Gibson humbucker crunch, and with high distortion it's just brutal, perfect for everything from riffs to soloing to the mighty pinch harmonic! Of course, there are things that no SG can do, but if you wanted to do those things you would be looking at Strat reviews...

Color: Brown Satin Verified Purchase
We purchased this guitar for my 14 year old son. It arrived in perfect condition and was surprisingly well set up for a guitar shipped in a box. The neck feels good, the action is good, and the stock pickups are much better than I had expected after reading reviews on other sites. I'm only taking off one star because the guitar is not exactly the same as the one shown in the photo; it doesn't have the white neck binding or the "Gibson" truss rod cover. It's still a good value for the price.

Color: Worn Cherry
I've just started the electric, having played classical for a couple of months. i went for agood brand, not top oof the range like a gibson, but up in the high guitar range. and it was the epiphone G400 cherry. it look beautiful, the finish is very good, although sometimes it gets fingerpreints on it, but these can only be seen if the guitar is in direct sunlight and they can be wiped of hanyway, and the inlays at the fret are pretty much perfect. it's also hardwearing and has two pickups and a good tone. maybe its just my strings which buzzed a bit ( the 6th string, e string, etc. blah), but after adjusting the bridge, it's gotten better plus I probably need new ones. its a good guitar for beginners and intermediates, and it certainly is a respected company plus it looks good. i'm learning guitar on it and will have it for a long time. so if you're looking for something nice - a proper guitar with quality and good looks as well as a good brand - I'd go with this one. it great, there are possibly a copule minor flaws, its not a fender strat or a gibson les paul, but its a solid guitar that sounds great, plays like it should, and looks damned sexy. although one problem is that it is slighlty top heavy so when in a strap the guitar will want to nosedive down, so you'll have to support it which is a bit annoying, but thats nothing compared to the music this baby makes. the strnings it comes with aren't that great though, don't last too long, and are slighlty thicker gauge, and maybe they buzz on evry guitar so i'm gonna get super slinkys on my guitar. i hear they are good for bending.
