Epiphone 1966 SG G-400 Cherry 2007
Epiphone 1966 SG Pro, made in China 2007, cherry red. This is the high end SG offering from Epiphone, so you get a proper mahogany body, tasty alnico pickups and sturdy hardware including some Grover tuners. Unusually, this is a 'Custom Shop' limited run with the 'batwing' mid 60s style guard. It looks awesome; there's a certain mean look that the guard really accentuates. Tone-wise, this has a heap of growling, punchy midrange on tap; perfect with a smattering of gain. It's an easy player and pretty nicely balanced in the hands. These are fetching a heap of cash new these days, so an older model in good shape sporting a legit rosewood board looks pretty attractive. AC/DC tab book not included, sorry!
