From the Manufacturer
Based on the Classic 1967 Gibson SG
Since Epiphone introduced the G-310 over 15 years ago, it has been the go-to instrument for those wanting real SG tone and styling at an economical price. Every serious player wants an SG, and here's a real one 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. The G-310 gives you the sound and look of a real 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. Since then, the SG has gone on to become the go-to guitar for artists like The Who's Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC's Angus Young, and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band.
Vintage-Style Mahogany Body
The G-310 uses the same dimensions and build techniques as vintage SGs made in the Kalamazoo factory in the '60s. The '67 style 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 SG feel, the G-310 has a rosewood fingerboard with a 1.68" nut.
Epiphone always finds a way to make subtle but important improvements on classic designs and the G-310 is no exception. The G-310's power comes from special red-hot open-coil humbuckers with Alnico magnets featuring a 650R humbucker in the neck position and a 700T humbucker in the bridge position for killer classic tone with modern punch.
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 G-310 features a LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece which yields incredible sustain and premium die-cast tuners for lifetime security. The G-310 comes in two classic colors, Ebony and Red.
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.

switched to a 12 string for 20 years
i have not played for 25 years until
i desided to buy a g-310 sg and start playing again
i'm 62 now and have lost the callous
on my fingers the the g-310 sg is a
excelent for beginners and old timers
who grew up during the good old rock
and roll days like me. its sweet.
GET THIS GUITAR, GREAT CHOICE FOR CHEAP PRICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I dont know if this holds true for all guitars, but it came pre strung and ready to play right out of the box. It also comes with a cable to the amp out of the box. It does not however come with picks or a strap. If you are new to guitars or just wanting a good value guitar, get this one. It is awesome! (and it comes with a life time warranty!)
They BOTH beat out the Squier Standard Strat I used to have (which was complete JUNK). Even my old Charvelle Charvette doesn't compare.
The SG-310 is NOT a practice guitar! It can take whatever you throw at it and will survive the road.
Unfortunately, the one I had came with bad electronics so I ended up with the LP-100.
BUT...for the month I had it, it was really a great experience, until the electronics went crazy.
I WILL be buying another one. I actually prefer the 310 over the 400 (which has the set-neck).
Oh, yeah...with 38 years fret time, I'm definitely no newbie.
For the price, this really IS an incredible guitar.

Great guitar. Not anything professional but a good guitar nonetheless. This guitar does neckdive, but buying a good leather or suede strap should solve thisPublished 22 months ago by Johnny
