Musigan Mükik, 15.05.2019
Great looking guitar, and great sounding too. Of course that's subjective opinion. Well, soundwise, this guitar even surpassed my expectations. Even without any effects, processors and amplifiers, just connected into audio interface, already sounds the way I like guitars to sound: rough, raw, metallic, heavy, rich in high and low frequencies, loud, crude, uncouth and intensive. With distortion, obviously, also sounds intensive. Good for many genres which value crudeness in sound. (Great for punk rock, obviously).

My SG arrived already set up sufficiently well, didn't need any adjustments. Have been playing every day for more than a month now. Stays in tune well enough, can't complain.

Okay, all being said, can't give it a highest quality rating. My particular 400 Pro gots one annoying problem. And it's not neck-diving (which is more like a well-known "feature" with SG-type guitars). The annoying problem is that the bridge pickup has a ground noise hum (which gets much quieter when the hands touch the strings). When amplified, also can hear some hi-frequency static noise (much like on vinyl records). Not much of an obstacle for practicing and random jamming, but for recording it's unacceptable.
At the same time the neck pickup is totally ok, without any ground noise. So, it's probably something wrong in wiring (not sending my SG back, already fell in love with it, someday will have to fix it all by myself).

Other than that the tone and volume knobs function just like they are supposed to, but I have no use for them, I just keep them all turned to the maximum (anyways methinks hi-pass filter would be more useful than lo-pass on a guitar). Also the coil split is an interesting feature. Supposedly this should allow you to play with a "thinner" sound. Well I purchased SG because I want a "thicker" sound, but yes, with coil split it sounds more quiet for sure and slightly more "accoustic".

Already mentioned looks. This guitar in real life actually looks much better than on pictures.

Excellent guitar for the price I paid
Dforce10, 24.05.2018
Great guitar and features foe the price only issues I've had with it is some times there's a buzz from the A string tuning peg and the whole for the bridge isn't far enough back to intonate the G string properly at the correct string height. Otherwise I really love this guitar. Sound resonates really well through the body. The price has gone up a lot since I bought mine in back in March 2017. I got the bundle (guitar & case) for ¤379, now the guitar on its own costs almost as much ¤369. So I was lucky that I bought it when I did. I would give this guitar 4 1/2 stars total but the rating system will only let you rate either 4 or 5 stars

Epiphone SG G-400 PRO CH
05.05.2016
Guitar is very well made for it's price class.
Nicely lacquered without any flaw and the wood grain underneath is also very nice !
The only thing was the setup, I needed to adjust the truss-rod and the intonation, which was not a problem for me after +50 years guitar playing as a semi-pro.
Thanks for the quick delivery !

Great guitar for a home studio
14.06.2016
I use this guitar for a home studio, and with the addition of coil taping it provides a versatile tool when producing music in more then one genre. So far the only cons is the quality of the electronics and the controls/nobs on the guitar. Even though i don't gig or carry it around, after a year there seems to be some effect on them, and some produce noise when used or behave not as desired.

Great guitar but slight problem.
Kenan R., 20.02.2014
I recently purchased this guitar and it has sounded fantastic, it sounded great on the amplifiers and i loved the push-pull feature. The p90 pickups were great but i have a slight or rather big problem. When I play the low E string (open), the machine heads and the head buzz. Can you replace them (the machine heads) with new wilkinson deluxe machine heads (like the original on the guitar)?

I was disappointed by this.
yours sincerely, Kenan.
