Epiphone Electric Guitar SG Standard Pro
A classic SG now with Alnico Classic PRO™ pickups and coil-tapping
Epiphone honors the historic SG, one of the most original designs in rock, with the G-400 PRO, which now features Alnico Classic PRO™ pickups and push/pull coil-tapping. 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. Scores of rock, hard rock and metal guitarists embraced the original SG and made it a classic. Now, the G-400 PRO gives you the sound of a true SG without the vintage price tag and with the added tonal variety that you’ve come to expect from Epiphone.
As with all Epiphones, the G-400 PRO includes a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s famous 24/7/365 customer service. Visit your authorized Epiphone dealer and break out today with a G-400 PRO.

Built for Classic SG Performance
The G-400 PRO is inspired by the late ’60s era SGs, both a player’s and collector’s favorite, and uses the same dimensions and build techniques as vintage SGs made in the Kalamazoo, Michigan, 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 new Wilkinson™ Vintage Classic tuners are also lighter weight, which makes your G-400 PRO feel perfectly balanced on stage and in the studio. The SlimTaper™ “D” profile mahogany neck has a 24.75″ scale with 24 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-400 has a rosewood fingerboard with a 1.68” nut and pearloid trapezoid inlays. The truss rod cover is the classic Kalamazoo bell shape with SG PRO in white.
Alnico Classic PR™ Power
Epiphone always finds a way to make improvements on our classic designs and the G-400 PRO is no exception. Now featuring Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO™ 4-wire humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions, the G-400 PRO offers a tonal palette that far exceeds any other guitar of its kind. The Alnico Classic PROs™ feature Alnico V magnets for terrific humbucker sustain with a huge dynamic range that can go from clean to crunch at a touch. And now, the G-400 PRO features coil-tapping on both pickups via a push/pull control on the pickups’ volume controls.
