Carved in a classic SG shape, the unique Epiphone Worn G-400 guitar is the result of a special finishing process that imparts a worn and seasoned appearance. For all intents and purposes, it looks like a vintage axe! The hardware and neck design, however, are totally contemporary and comfortable for the modern player. This distinctive G-400 is outfitted with two Alnico Classic humbucking pickups that channel a decidely retro and vintage tone.

Classic SG Materials and Proportions

The body of the Worn G-400 is solid mahogany, and its neck joint is set in a classic glued-in deep-set design that maximizes the surface contact between the body and neck. This, along with the traditional 17-degree SG neck tilt, impart the SG with its legendary responsiveness and sustain. The solid mahogany quarter-sawn one-piece neck is a 24.75-inch scale with a nut width of 1.68 inches, and carved in the classic SlimTaper "D" shape with a 12-inch radius -- historically the most popular SG neck cut. The rosewood fretboard is set with aged-looking trapezoidal inlays on 9 frets. The classic SG-style carved horn cutaways allow clear finger access through all 22 frets.

High-Quality Hardware

The hardware is nickel chrome finished throughout. Up top, you'll find a set of excellent Grover tuning machines with a 14:1 gear ratio. Below, your intonation is kept solid with a LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece.

Unique Pickups With Classic Tone

The two Alnico Classic humbuckers on the Worn G-400 set this guitar apart from other Epiphone releases. These pickups were specially designed to deliver a high-output tone that would convey a vintage sound with a bright and crisp response. The neck pickup is an Alnico Classic, while the bridge is an Alnico Classic Plus. Play the two pickups separately, or blend them with the G-400's classic three-way toggle and vintage-style skirted knobs.

- Worn satin finish
- SlimTaper "D" shape neck
- Alnico Classic humbucker pickup in neck position
- Alnico Classic Plus humbucker pickup in bridge position
- LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge

Product Description

Here's the vintage guitar you're not afraid to play every day. Epiphone's SG-shaped Worn G400 has the well-worn look and feel of a favorite guitar. It's worn finish showcases the wood grain (similar to Gibson's popular faded series). The faded Series' well-traveled look has another advantage when it comes to maintenance: The satin finish and 'aged' inlays on the fingerboard add even more character to an already unique design. The G400 has a one-piece neck with super satin finish, humbucker pickups, chrome hardware and tune-o-matic bridge.

About Epiphone

Epiphone's passion has always been about more than just making guitars. It has been about making music. It has been about understanding what is inside every musican that makes them want to, have to, express themselves. And understanding the myriad musical styles, where they are going and how they might develop. For over one hundred and twenty-five years they have continually looked for better ways to help players take their music farther.

Epi Stathopoulo, their founder and namesake, was always on the forefront of music. He was the first instrument maker to embrace Jazz music and led the industry away from mandolin and banjo production and into making guitars. At the age of twenty-four Epi obtained his first of many patents that would change fretted instrument construction forever. The extension truss rod design, the first pickup with individual pole pieces, and the Tonexpressor - the precursor to the modern day 'wah-wah' pedal - were all epiphone innovations. But perhaps the greatest contribution to guitar making came in 1941 while Les Paul was experimenting in the Epiphone factory. These experiments led to the Les Paul 'Log' and the first solid-body electric guitar.

Epi's vision of the future of music and guitar, as well as the importance of his work could be seen by, and in, those who chose to play an Epiphone. Musicians who themselves were visionaries. George Van Epps, Harry Volpe, Howard Roberts, Joe Pass and other Jazz players would make music history with an Epiphone guitar, as would Blues legend, John Lee Hooker. And the Beatles, who recorded Paperback Writer, Ticket to Ride, and the most recorded song ever written, Yesterday, with Epiphone guitars they purchased in 1964. It is an incredible legacy that continues today with Noel Gallagher, Lenny Kravitz and other artists who choose to make their music with an Epiphone

The same sprit of innovation that drove the Stathopoulos to start pushing the boundaries of guitar design over one hundred and twenty-five years ago is alive and well at Epiphone today. Styles of music will continue to evolve, technologies will come and go, but true players will continue to take music and guitar in different directions. But their passion for making music and their mission of providing musicians with a great instrument they can rely on to express themselves will always remain constant.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (200 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Buy this now!!!!"
Sound: This guitar sounds great, no matter what I play it through Feature: I liked the fact Epiphone sent a cord with it. I wouldn't change a thing about this guitar! Ease of Use: It sounds good just by itself; the sustain is something to be envious of if you don't have it. The tone controls actually make a difference in the sound, unlike some guitars I've owned. I'd tell any and everyone who plays guitar to burn yours(outside)and follow this one like it's the ribwich! Quality: I loved it. Right as I opened the box, I was struck by the finish quality. The aged brown has the look of a fine piece of old furniture. The enclosed inspection card came with the string height measurements written in. Number 9, and the rest of the Epiphone team really shone on this guitar. Value: great price for a set neck electric! Manufacturer Support: I used the website to register the warranty; then I checked out some cool video lessons they were offering. The Wow Factor: It is a practical guitar; I've wanted a solid body electric for a while, but I wasn't sure which one until I read all the other reviews. Overall: I am extremely satisfied. In these days of planned obsolescence, where it can seem like everything a person buys new breaks within a month, it's good to know there is a company that still cares about making a quality product for a reasonable price. If this guitar gets lost or stolen, the only reason I would need to replace it would be if I broke it beating severely the responsible parties.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Awsome Guitar"
Sound: pretty much what you'd expect from an SG. Sounds great clean and full and crunchy on overdrive. Excellent for Rock and Metal or anything that needs a crisp, full tone. Feature: The humbuckers sound great and the Grovers work well. Its a shame theres no whammy bar. Ease of Use: The neck is comfortable however you will notice that it is neck heavy. this is realy annoying for a few days but then you get used to it and it's fine. Having the full 22 fret access is makes soloing alot more comfortable. The Grover tuners are excellent, you can trust them to stay in tune. Quality: The SG is finnished to a high standard, there was a paint blemish on mine but thats not really a big deal. all the componants seem to be of a high quality and nothing has broken yet. Its fairly weighty compared to other cheaper guitars which clearly shows the quality of the wood. Value: I would happliy have paid more for this guitar. I cant see it breaking anytime soon so it will probably last for years. If you cant afford a Gibson, i recomend this guitar. Manufacturer Support: Not needed The Wow Factor: When you show it to people, they automaticly say "wow, that must have cost loads!" Overall: amazing guiatr. i recomend it to anyone who has been playing long enough to apppreciate how good it sounds.
