Product Description

The playable neck and long sustain of the SG make it an excellent guitar for metal and other heavier genres of rock. The Epiphone Gothic Series SG gives the classic model a fitting exterior to match the dark and dense tones its capable of producing with an all black finish and gothic appointments on the twelfth fret and headstock. With a mahogany body and dual uncovered humbuckers, the Epiphone Goth SG churns out the resonant low tones needed for drop-D chugging and scorching solos. It's no coincidence that Black Sabbath axeman Tony Iommi built his career and crafted the Sabbath sound using an SG.

Features:

- Dark new take on a classic guitar design
- Black finish with black hardware and black pickups
- Dual Epiphone humbuckers
- Distinct "XII" inlay on twelfth fret with Gothic emblem on headstock
- Mahogany body with set mahogany neck and ebony fretboard
- Epiphone limited lifetime warranty with 24/7/365 customer service

"Yes people, it is a REAL SG."
Sound: Pretty hot pickups which are quite extreme in tone for a production guitar. Bridge is _high_, neck is almost jazz/blues worthy. Thin mahogany body is toppy as all SGs tend to be, but capable of some good low end as well. I give it a 9 'cause it is pretty much a dedicated metal/punk guitar for me and suits that role well in terms of sound. Feature: Electronics in general needed a tweak of some sort, but once done are actually quite good. Grovers are a nice touch, but not top of the line tuners. Frankly the pickups could be a bit clearer, and absolutely needed re-potting. Once re-potted, however, they put up with a ton of gain and tone shaping without going microphonic. Bridge and tailpiece are adequate. Switch needed a hit of conductive lube, and probably will again. Quality: Finish had a couple of blemishes on the side of the fretboard - looked like a bad masking job. Neck is well set and stable for an SG. Pickups needed re-potting, and switch can be flaky. Re-potting isn't a big deal, but a nuisance for a new guitar. It shouldn't be necessary on mid-range instruments, but I understand is a pretty common issue with Epis. Value: Not cheap, but reasonably priced for the quality. Manufacturer Support: Can't say. Haven't dealt with them. The Wow Factor: I'm a soft touch for black SGs. I just have to deal with it... Overall: Does what I want - harsh noise. It cleans up well enough to play just about anything that could be termed popular in the past 35 years.
Style of Music: Blues, Jazz with a punk background and a current metal band - I'm so confused!

"Reasons to be an Epiphone SG-Goth..."
Sound: It gets great sound, much better than anything I have played before (jacksons, squire strats etc) Feature: it didn't come with anything, just the guitar, but it goes fantastically with the stuff i bought at the same time (birthdays are great, so much stuff...), a Peavey Rage 158 amp, a marshall mini-amp. it just gets great sound whatever its played through. it sound particularly great through my brother's 300 watt beast of an amp :) Quality: Epiphone make great guitars, the only problem i am having is that it goes out of tune quite quickly, but that be the new strings or that i have my bedroom window open all day... Manufacturer Support: I haven't dealt directly with Epiphone, but the shop i went through to purchase it was extremely helpful, ordering it in from a different part of the country due to a shortage. The Wow Factor: it is a very pretty guitar, everyone wants to play it lol. i use a Strap-Art white on black tribal strap, it looks perfect, the laydeez love it.. lol Overall: i think i will play this guitar till i die, or till it falls apart, it is that good a guitar.
Style of Music: rock, metal, ska, punk.
