Which one is better? Ha ha. (opening can of worms)
The 1966 limited sg g400 pro is what ur asking about?
I owned one, only difference I found was the pick guard shape.
Have one, played both.
Which pickguard do you like more? Decide that and you've got your answer.
I got the 66 only because I liked the big pick guard better. I saw no other difference.
The only differences are the colours as the g400 pro only comes in worn, black and cherry but the 66 has other colours
Get one WITH a big PG and one with a small one then your covered lol
I had no idea that they were the same guitar. Thanks for the info guys.
1966 - big pickguard in Pelham Blue or silver or white or... oooooo, sexy; you right-handed freaks don't know how lucky you are!
& there's more:
As stated above, they are all good. I just like the batwing and pelham blue/silver/white options.
I have it on good authority that the Pelham Blue ones are invariably owned by people of exceptional character and attractiveness.
Are the necks the same taper/style?
That is what I thought. Yes.
They are both better....than a Les Paul
There are two major differences and several minor ones.
-the tuners for the g400 pro are Grover brand vs '66's vintage Keystone tuners
-the large batwing pickguard vs smaller standard one
-slight weigh difference ('66 weighs a little less)
-the bottom cutaway has no bevel behind it (this applies to Gibson and Epiphone, view pic)
-varied finishes/polish on neck and body (Epi's vary on binding but Gibson standards which have white neck binding vs its reissued '60s models always have cream/aged neck binding)
everything else is hardware within/out
Well well ... I'll go to bed les dumb again tonight !
Why would the '66 be lighter ? Has it got a pool routing under that big guard ?
Hey I'm no guitar tech, I'm only going by what I've observed via store or online and those guitars in my own possession. I own three Epi SG's and my standard g400 weighs a bit more than my '66 reissue, just saying...my word ain't gospel.
Ah ... I thought is was a scientific proven fact
Every guitar has it's own wood density, so I wouldn't think there's a specific weight for a variation of the same model.
You have those weight noted, so we can compare ?
My TV Silver special edition '66 Pro came with Grovers.
