Epiphone G-400 PRO (Cherry)

Epiphone honours 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 and look of a real SG without the vintage price tag and with the added tonal variety that you've come to expect from Epiphone.. When the SG, or "Solid Guitar," was introduced in 1961 as a replacement for the Les Paul Standard, it was called the "fretless wonder" for its low frets and fast action. The twin horn cutaway design was like nothing on the market and its light but balanced weight made it the perfect guitar for stage and studio work. Later '60s models introduced the SG with humbucker pickups, and since then, the SG has became the go-to guitar for artists like The Who's Pete Townshend, Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC's Angus Young, Eric Clapton and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band. . 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 WilkinsonTM Vintage Classic tuners are also lighter weight which makes your G-400 PRO feel perfectly balanced on stage and in the studio. The SlimTaperGäó "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. The truss rod cover is the classic Kalamazoo bell shape with SG PRO in white. . 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 PROGäó 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 PROsGäó 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. . Epiphone leads the way in manufacturing great-sounding guitars for players of all levels and-áthat goes for our great hardware, too.-áEpiphone provides quality, all-metal hardware on all its instruments including full-function volume and tone knobs using full-size 500K +¬ potentiometers matched with Epiphone's rugged, all-metal, 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance.

Epiphone Wilshire 'Phant-o-matic' Outfit (Antique Ivory)

Epiphone Wilshire "Phant-o-matic": Epiphone is proud to announce one of our most anticipated new models, the Wilshire "Phant-o-matic." Designed in collaboration with Frank Iero guitarist for multi-platinum band My Chemical Romance, the Wilshire "Phant-o-matic" combines an incredible array of features that only Epiphone would dare put in one instrument. The result is one of the smartest and most flexible guitars on the market with all the vintage styling that made Wilshire models a behind-the-scenes favorite of Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter, Paul Gilbert, and Steve Marriot. . Like our classic SG design, the Wilshire "Phant-o-matic" features a double cutaway design with a solid Mahogany body. The 24.75" scale Mahogany hand-set neck has a 1960s SlimTaperTM -áprofile, a rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl block inlays, a 12" radius, and a 1-11/16" nut. The neck profile and double cutaway make the Wilshire "Phant-o-matic" a perfect guitar for chunking rhythm or cutting leads. The Antique Ivory finish, black single-ply pickguard, and classic form are eye catching to be sure. But what really sets the Wilshire "Phant-o-matic" apart from the pack is how it sounds.. My Chemical Romance have sold almost 7 million albums worldwide and know a thing or two about what makes a great, reliable, and cutting edge instrument. Working closely together over several years of research and development, Frank Iero and Epiphone strove to make an axe that puts the sound of a dozen guitars at your fingertips. The result is what you make it'a straight ahead awesome rock guitar or something completely new and groundbreaking. The "Phant-o-matic" employs two classic Epiphone pickups, our famous Alnico Classic PlusTM Humbucker in the bridge and an Alnico ClassicTM Humbucker in the neck position. To get the most of the wide tonal possibilities from this pickup arrangement, we've included a mono VariToneTM, much like the one used most famously by blues legend B. B. King.. The VariToneTM uses a six-way rotary switch which engages 5 pre-set notch filters and a bypass. In position one, the VariToneTM is completely bypassed. As you rotate the rotary switch into positions 2-6, the center frequency of the notch filter shifts from around 1.9kHz down to 130Hz, providing a player with a wide tonal palette unavailable on most other instruments. Positions 2 through 4 offer tonal shaping while still maintaining great clarity.-á But keep turning and you'll find Positions 5 and 6 shape-shift the Alnico ClassicTM Humbuckers into a single-coil style pickup but without the thin quack usually associated with traditional single coil pickups. Add it all up and between the 6-position VariToneTM circuit and the 3-position toggle switch, you have 18 unique tones available.-áAnd if that wasn't enough, Epiphone has included a high quality horn-mounted kill switch which provides an infinite range of staccato on/off effects. A master volume control is mounted with easy access to the VariToneTM-árotary switch-áfor quick adjustments. . Like many of our classic solid body electrics, the Wilshire "Phant-o-matic" uses our LockToneTM Tune-o-MaticTM/StopBar bridge for tuning and intonation accuracy. Machine heads are nickel WilkensonTM vintage style tuners with green keys. And to protect it, Epiphone has included a premium, padded gigbag. As with every Epiphone, every Wilshire "Phant-o-matic" comes with the peace of mind you get from a two year warranty backed by Gibson Musical Instruments' famous 24/7/365 day Customer Service.-á See and hear the groundbreaking Wilshire "Phant-o-matic" today!. -á
