Epiphone SG Classic Worn P-90s (PP) 6 String Solidbody Electric Guitar

Gearank Recommendation

The Epiphone SG Classic Worn P-90s appeared on our recommended list for Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $500 from May 2021 until August 2022 when it was removed due to being out-ranked by the Epiphone Les Paul Junior 2020 and Epiphone Les Paul Special - TV Yellow.

Overview

The Gibson SG is a familiar axe used in rock, albeit expensive, but this version from Epiphone makes it more accessibly priced.

Being part of their 2020 release, the SG Classic Worn P-90s comes with modern appointments and aesthetics, while retaining the classic appeal of the SG format.

The most distinct feature of this guitar is its open-grain worn finish that many consider to be quite the looker.

Underneath the finish is a mahogany body cut into the familiar twin horn double cutaway of the SG, paired with a 60's SlimTaper mahogany neck topped with a 22-fret laurel fingerboard.

It derives its tone from its two P-90 pickups, reminiscent of old Gibson SG Specials with the same type of pickup.

Other features include LockTone ABR bridge with stopbar tailpiece, and GraphTech nut.

With its nice looking finish and P-90 style tones, the Epiphone SG classic Worn P-90s will make a great addition to anyone's tool kit.
