The Epiphone G-400 Custom resurrects one of the greatest guitars in our history, the 1961 Les Paul Custom. In 1961, the Les Paul Custom with its Antique Ivory finish, 3 gold pickups, and Les Paul Custom-style headstock (not to mention Les’ signature at the end of the fingerboard and on the trussrod cover) took over for the tuxedo of guitars, the Les Paul Custom, after manufacturing of traditional Les Pauls temporarily ceased at our historic Kalamazoo factory in the early ‘60s. The 1961 Les Paul Custom was one of the most elegant guitars of its time and gave players all the V-8 engine power of a Les Paul Custom without the weight.
The original SG not only rivaled guitars of its own era for sonic variety but also proved to be a sign of things to come. Hard rock, metal and scores of rockers embraced the original SG and made it a classic. Now, the G-400 Custom gives you the sound and look of this.
