A sharp looking SG at a great price
AngelosK, 24.07.2020
Always loved the Custom format and its great to see an SG from Epiphone with this classy look.
Love the new "Kalamazoo" headstock, it adds to the looks with its clean bound "open book" cut. The addition of TUSQ's Nubone nut is a great improvement to tuning stability and the guitar stays in tune with the vintage Kluson style tuners.
The neck is true with bound ebony fretboard and fret work has been done very good, no high frets or sharp edges. Profile is on the fat side of '60s slim taper.
Setup from out of the box was great no need to adjust intonation or neck bow, just had to lower the action as it was set too high.
Pickups are ok for the price I guess, I don't mind them as I plan to replace them. Great improvement is the use of CTS pots, thing is they used long shaft so the knobs sit quite high on them and that leaves a 0,4-0,6cm gap between the knobs skirt and body.
Wiring is the usual Epiphone with quick connectors for the pickups.
The Epiphone TOM bridge is something I would like to see upgraded since its saddles are retained with a springy piece of wire which over time it oxidizes and falls apart.
Over all finish of the guitar is great with some minor imperfections around the neck binding. Total weight is 3kg so its pretty light.
In summary it's a great guitar for the money, Epiphone had some great improvements for 2020 and with some minor hardware upgrades it can become a killer axe.

A very good guitar.
manuelk7515, 19.05.2020
I am very pleased about this guitar. It is a matter of taste but it looks stunning.The guitar sound is the typically SG sound, I love the Alnico's humbuckers. It has good tuners.
I inmediately changed the string on the guitar, because they were truly out of tune. A very good guitar for this price.

Trauminstrument mit kleinen Macken
R.H.S. , 05.01.2021
Nach über 20 Jahren habe ich mich (damals durch Robbie Krieger inspiriert) dazu entschieden mir eine SG zu kaufen. Da ich für ein gutes Instrument und nicht einen teuren Namen zahlen möchte habe ich die SG Custom Ebony gewählt. Nicht zuletzt auch aufgrund der vielen positiven Bewertungen im Netz, und auch nachdem ich eine LP aus der Custom Serie bei einem Freund anspielen konnte und sofort überzeugt war.
Leider, und das ist das erste mal, kam die Gitarre sehr schlecht verpackt an. Zusätzlich bestellte Artikel wurden mit in die Umverpackung gesteckt und die original Sicherungskartonage entfernt. Dadurch lag der Gitarrenkarton locker in der Umverpackung und das Klebeband hatte sich gelöst. Der Karton war also offen und die Gitarre sichtbar. Zu Glück ist aber nichts passiert da Epiphone die Gitarren ziemlich gut sichert.
Die SG selbst sieht göttlich aus. Es gibt jedoch 2 Themen. Erstens der Sattel - dieser steht auf jeder Seite ca. 1mm über, was ich so noch nicht gesehen habe. Kann aber nachbearbeitet werden. Zweitens die Bünde - teilweise scharfkantig, teilweise sehr schlecht abrichtet und auch sehr unsauber abgerundet. Vielleicht ist das bei diesem Preis jammern auf hohem Niveau? Nein eigentlich nicht - ich habe günstigere Instrumente in deutlich besserer Qualität gesehen. Dennoch spielt sie sich, direkt aus dem Karton heraus sehr gut und klingt wie sie soll. Hochwertig rotzig, aber eben auch sauber und smooth. Der Kauf hat sich definitiv gelohnt. Der schwarze Lack ist erstklassig und die vergoldete Hardware bringt eben diesen vollends zur Geltung. Wenn der Sattel und die Bünde in der gleichen Perfektion gemacht wären wie die Kopfplatte wäre es die perfekte Gitarre. Beim Thema Verpackung, liebe Thomänner, bitte unbedingt und dringend nachbessern!!! Ich hatte, gleich nach dem öffnen, ernsthaft kurz den Gedanken alles wieder zurückzuschicken.

Schöne Gitarre - gute Qualität zum kleinen Preis
MikeVie, 21.08.2020
passt super zu meiner Epiphone LP 1955 (schwarz/gold, P90), super Klang mit 2 Humbucker, gute Einstellung vom Werk, gutes Finish (nur ganz kleine Macken am Griffbrett), Bünde nicht ganz sauber bearbeitet, Potis ok, Hals sehr dünn (slim taper), etwas gewöhnungsbedürfig, sehr leichte Gitarre (dünner Korpus) ----> in Summe: KLARE KAUFEMPFEHLUNG
