“I got it for Christmas 2008 (yesterday) and I love it....”

Written on: 26/12/2008 by a RATM fan (1 review written)

I got it for Christmas 2008 (yesterday) and I love it. Good, low action neck, easy as hell to tune, and looks amazing. It has a slightly sticky neck, easily remedied by just sliding your fingers along the sides of the neck, which works fine as long as you don't want to play too fast. But, the G and A strings do tend to slip out of tune a bit. Overall: a great beginner guitar and easy to play. I love it… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/03/2008 by joshuabloor91 (1 review written)

Bought it yesterday and I love it. You can play anything on it. But make sure you have a decent amp also. 20w stagg will do. Epiphone have been making guitars long before Gibson came out and the pickup on this guitar is brilliant. The neck and head are just like the Gibson. Great value for money. Better then any guitar under 300 pounds, due to the already better pickups… Read Full Review

“Well, it's a nice beginner, but hard to play punk with...”

Written on: 30/08/2007 by Sick1982 (1 review written)

Well, it's a nice beginner, but hard to play punk with it because of the buzz, maybe I should change strings orso, my relief is 0.3 mm and my action is 2,4 mm for bass and 1,6 mm for treble strings at the 12th fret ... so it should go fine, but it isn't.

Playing while standing seems impossible, the neck keeps pulling down.

The finish is very well done, a real beauty!

It didn't go out of tune, only once, but that was a while after I changed the relief (I did tune it after it), but I think… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/05/2007 by Sammybabe05 (1 review written)

The Epiphone SG Special is my first guitar. Got it as a graduation present when i decided to start playing. I like how light the guitar is. I'm small so it works out great. The neck is not too big either. It could be smaller but hey, it's not a les paul jr. It has a great sound. I got the Amp that came with it when it was ordered out of Muscianfriends and I love the sound quality. The Strings that came with it were not bad strings, i used them for almost a year, before i had to change them… Read Full Review

The 1st time I played an Epiphone SG I was disappointed. It's an outstanding looking guitar, and the pick ups are great, but overall it could be better.

Personally I would save and get an Epiphone Les Paul Standard. If I was looking for an SG but couldn't afford a real Gibson, then I would buy this guitar… Read Full Review
