Gearank Recommendation

The G-400 Pro SG appeared on our recommended list for Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $500 from when we published our first edition in November 2016 until June 2020.


The original SG may have failed to impress Les Paul, but it did impress scores of other guitarists, including greats like Tommy Iommi, Eric Clapton, Angus Young and many more.

The Epiphone G-400 Pro is an affordable remake of the classic twin horn double cutaway shape guitar, albeit with modern enhancements meant to improve playability (via the SlimTaper D Profile), tuning accuracy and reliability (via the LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge) and expand its tone options (via its Coil Tapping enabled circuit).
