The Look and Feel of a Vintage SG -- Brand New for You!
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.
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.
