Epiphone Limited Edition “1966” G-400 PRO


The Epiphone 1966 G-400 PRO differs from the original vintage 1966 SG in more than just price. The Epiphone 1966 G-400 PRO has a larger pickguard. This also means there aren’t any pickup mounting rings around the pickups.

Other features include:

  • high-output Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers (P-90’s on the original ’66 SG )
  • Separate volume and tone controls for each pickup. This increases the tonal possibilities and control.
  • A LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece (to provide better sustain )

The Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 is a Gibson-authorized version of their great ’66 SG. The SG was made famous by the likes of AC/DC’s Angus Young, Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, Derek Trucks and others. With a solid mahogany body and slim-taper set mahogany neck, it’s no mystery why.

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 classic SG double-cutaway body of the Epiphone 1966 G-400 PRO lets you reach all 22 frets with ease. The body is solid mahogany and so is the Slim-taper neck. The Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers are set to coil-split. This means you can switch them from full humbucker to single coil, increasing the tones available.

Longtime readers of this site know that I’m a huge fan of simplicity and versatility. The Epiphone Limited Edition 1966 G-400 Electric Guitar has both. It also has a price which definitely makes it a top electric guitar for beginners.
