SG Special – Now everyone can own a real SG shape! The SG Special from Epiphone features twin open-coil Humbucker pickups, the Tune-o-matic bridge/Stopbar tailpiece combo for maximum sustain and a fully-carved SG body for devilish good looks… at £129, it’s a pretty cool introductory guitar.

G-310 – Based on the 1967 Gibson SG, the Epiphone G-310 has all the SG style and features you want, but at bolt-neck affordability. It also has a full pickguard, sports two hot open-coil Humbucker pickups and full controls… Pretty good value for money, at £149. View 


G-400 – A true icon guitar, the SG was originally a successor Les Paul Model from ’61 to ’68. This edition of the prized 1962 Gibson SG boasts the power and merciless sustain you expect to shake you all night long. It’s constructed of a Mahogany neck set to a Mahogany body with twin Alnico Classic Humbucker pickups… always a favourite. More info here.


G-400 Deluxe – Epiphone has taken the classic SG body shape and added a premium Flame Maple top! All the other features of the G-400 remain, including Alnico Classic humbuckers, stopbar tailpiece with Tune-o-matic bride and an all-Mahogany back for maximum sustain and great tone! The Trademarked bridge double-cutaway body and ultra-fast, slim-taper neck allow for blistering lead work all the way up the smooth Rosewood fingerboard… more info


Tony Iommi G-400 – Rock legend and Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi lends his name to this G-400 from hell. All blacked out with Tony’s signature ‘cross’ inlays up the 24 fret slim-taper neck and Gibson USA Tony Iommi Humbucker pickups for that demonic roar… more info.


G-400 Custom – Elegant and powerful, this 1961 Les Paul Custom, we know today as a 3-pickup SG lives on in stunning detail, even down to the LP script at the neck. The Epiphone G-400 Custom features Alnico Classic Humbuckers in the bridge, middle and neck positions for the fullest vintage SG sound possible… more info.


G-1275 Custom – Jimmy Page made it famous. Epiphone makes it available to you in fabulous detail. It combines a 6-string SG and a 12 string SG featuring Alnico Classic pickups, open-coil on the six side and covered on the twelve side, mounted on a Mahogany body with a gorgeous Flame Maple top… more info
