    Hey everyone, finally part of the SG club again. American Musical was running a special on Epis, 12 mos payments so I couldn't resist and picked up a cherry G400 Pro. Must say better than I expected, even has the neck binding which I was surprised to see. I had been reading that the latest ones didn't have it but this one did. Super nice guitar, came setup perfect out of the box couldn't be happ

    Welcome to the G400 Pro club! Beautiful axe. I wasn't aware they we're doing binding now, but I love the look.

    Thanks for sharing and happy NGD. I am considering one of these in black. Yes, I want the binding as well. These look to be similar finish to my Iommi model, so I thought it would be good as an all around player.

    Love the Iommi, wish I had one so bad. Pickups are so thick sounding.

    Yeah, all the pics I saw there wasn't any binding but I definitely dig the binding. Frets need to be filed a little, kind of sharp for my liking but easy fix.

    Wow, very nice! Epiphone have really upped their game. The Gibson style tuners suit it very nicely.
    Does it have neck dive? Just curious if it’s actually the tuners or not.

    Has it?
    Standard answer from now on: If you care about "neck dive" go buy a Les Paul boat anchor.

    I put Kluson copy tuners from e-bay on mine, it pretty much cured the neck dive.

    Congrats... Happy NGD! :)

    Dig the neck binding! I always wondered why their top of the LPs had it but not the SG Pros...

    Yes, has some neck dive but nothing a wider strap wouldn't fix. I'm using a narrow DeMarzio now so if it starts to bother me I'll switch out the strap.

    Kluson copy tuners? It was Wilkinsons on it now (So it says) what copies did you use? Brand? How do I find them on eBay, like to take a look.

    I'm not sure but I doubt very much that they are any better than what is on your guitar.
