The Epiphone Worn G-400 is truly one of the best guitar values you will find today.

The SG Story
When the SG or “Solid Guitar” was introduced in 1961 as a replacement for the Les Paul, 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 become the go-to guitar for artists like The Who’s Pete Townshend, Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC’s Angus Young, Eric Clapton and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band.
Built for Classic SG Performance
The Worn G-400 is inspired by the 1962 SG, both a player’s and collector’s favorite, and uses the same dimensions and build techniques as vintage SGs made in the Kalamazoo 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 SlimTaper™ “D” profile mahogany neck has a 24.75″ scale with 22 frets and a 12” radius for incredible reach thanks to the SG’s classic cutaway. And for that one-of-a-kind vintage SG feel, the Worn G-400 has an ‘aged’ fingerboard with a 1.68″ nut.
Epiphone always finds a way to make subtle but important improvements on our classic designs and the Worn G-400 is no exception. It features high output Alnico Classic™ (neck) and Alnico Classic Plus™ (bridge) humbuckers that give the Worn G-400 a tonal palette that far exceeds any other guitar of its kind. Modern manufacturing techniques ensure that the Worn G-400’s pickups and electronics will not diminish over time and will rock as long as you can.
