I have had around ten lessons and decided that I needed to upgrade from my 1980's strat-a-like that I bought second hand to something new. I shortlisted this model from some extensive internet searches and YT video etc. along with other models, all from Epiphone. The guarantee that comes with all Epiphone, and parent company Gibson, is excellent so I wanted a part of that.

The sensible approach for me was to get to a music shop and try my shortlist out against each other in direct comparison. So I looked at two styles of guitar, the SG and the Les Paul and also looked at variations from cheaper to more expensive. These were all played through a really swish Orange amp, much better than my crappy practice amp at home so they all sounded good.

So, I initially found that there was - to my ears - little difference between this model and the SG310. In terms of playing them, there was no difference, other than the additional tone & volume controls on the more expensive model. Will I use them? Maybe. Could I use the extra £50 elsewhere? Definitely! So the SG selection was made.

Then I tried the Les Paul models as a comparison. To me, I always thought the Les Paul guitars were the archetypal rock legend guitars and were therefore quite aspirational. I started at the budget end with the Les Paul Special 2 and found this quite easy to get along with, but noticeably a bit weedy or thin in sound compared to the other guitars I tried. It was okay, but no better than that. The Les Paul 100 from Epiphone was noticeably warmer in tone, with miles more sustain. I hardly play more than a handful of chords at this point but I couldn't choose the cheaper model on hearing this. The truth is that I recently had a go with a LP Standard and the LP 100 suffered in comparison to that.

This is a very good guitar and I am very pleased with it. It can do a range of various tones (without using any effects pedals).

The guitar I received is a darker red than the one in the picture and it has a black plastic board on the bottom section of the guitar, underneath the pickups, whereas in the picture it doesn't have one.

To me it looks like the guitar that John Lennon was playing on the official, but as far as I know still not officially released, video for the song 'Rain' that is the 'b' side to the single 'Paperback Writer' that was released in 1966.

A good guitar regardless of ability, lovely sound and tone from it. I used to have a Yamaha Pacifica package and this is twice the guitar.
Looks fabulous as a piece of room art. Setup on arrival was pretty good, don't be put off by the setup process learn it off YouTube you need to know it anyway, small steps is best. Easily tuned up (I used a tuning app on my smart phone). Spend £40 ish on a decent practice amp, always a good quality lead and enjoy.

This Epiphone SG seems very well made and a fraction of the price of the Gibson SG. There is a world of difference between Original Gibson and these Epiphone reproductions I know but for the price it's amazing. It arrived well packaged but well out of tune so I await my new tuner to arrive to complete the setup properly.

Exactly what I was looking for.

I'd wanted a Gibson SG for a long time but i'm nowhere near good enough to deserve it xD

This one does the trick, plays really well and enjoyable tone for a keen musician.
Will play this for hours and keep up my progress.

Good luck to you all.
