The neck has a 24.75" scale length, 22 medium jumbo frets, an Indian Laurel fingerboard with dot inlays, and a 12" fingerboard radius. The fingerboard has white binding and the ABS nut is 1.68". Epiphone's famous small sloped dovewing headstock has a "bell" shaped truss rod cover and along with an Epiphone 60s-era slanted logo in mother of pearl. The SG Classic Worn is available in Worn Cherry and Worn Inverness.

Soapbar P-90 PRO Single Coil Pickups

The Epiphone SG Classic Worn Collection features two black P-90 PRO single coil pickups. The P-90 PRO single coil pickup follows in the footsteps of Epiphone's critically acclaimed ProBucker humbuckers and feature 8% Nickel Silver covers designed and tooled from the ground up with new bobbins manufactured to historic dimensions, Elektrisola magnet wire, sand cast Alnico read more V magnets, and pole shoes manufactured using correct alloys and to Gibson's original dimensions. Each pickup has a Volume and Tone control with vintage-styled Black Top Hats knobs with inserts plus Epiphone's all-metal 3-way pickup selector switch with a white cap and SG style Rhythm and Treble etching in silver.

LockTone ABR Bridge and Stopbar Tailpiece

"shocked"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I purchased this guitar feeling sure I would want to replace the pickups and that it would need tons of setup work before I would be happy with it, but I loved the color so I ordered it anyway. When I opened the box I couldn't believe how much better it looked in person (Inverness green ) the neck profile and satin finish are ridiculously comfortable and as far as the factory setup goes I spent the first few debating weather or not I should raise the action because it just felt too easy and effortless to play. The pickups? I don't see myself ever wanting to change these , which would be a first , I don't remember ever wanting to keep the stock pickups in anything. I've owned several epiphones and a few Gibsons over the last 35 years and I am shocked by the quality of the new epiphones. $379.00? Are you kidding? I want one for each tuning
