2006 model but it’s new and unplayed, and upgraded with a pair of Gibson SG Standard pickup as well as an EMG SPC/Mid-Boost active circuit AND a new case. Finished in classic Alpine White, this G-400 has the look of the early 60’s SG and with these upgrades you have a guitar that sounds as good as it looks. This guitar was originally a Ltd Ed model with EMG’s, thus it already had a battery compartment, so when we added the EMG mid boost, which requires a 9V battery, no modification to the body was necessary. The SPC is a killer unit that adds a lot of versatility. It fattens up the mids which can make your tone less muddy. It can also be used as a clean boost – just turn up the knob when you want some extra output, for leads etc. It provides sufficient gain to drive a tube amp into clipping while adding more harmonic content. The SPC is wired for both pickups; likewise the Tone control. Features include solid mahogany body with set-in mahogany neck, Grover tuners, slim-taper neck has a rosewood fretboard with pearloid trapezoid inlays, with a deep double-cutaway allowing easy access to the upper frets. Don’t judge Epi SG’s by guitars you may have played in a store. With a proper set up, they play with ease and the fret ends are perfectly dressed. This model listed for $999 without case or gigbag and with these upgrades it’s a super nice deal at $499, flawless and unplayed – and includes a new hardshell case. Also includes, manual, cable, poster, etc. (Note: I also have this model with EMG81/85 on my Gibson page).
