Epiphone Goth G-400 SG with Set Neck, and Celtic Cross: in Satin Black

This Epiphone Goth G-400 is as magical as its symbolism. Start with a Mahogany body with a set, Mahogany neck, voiced with high-output Alnico Classic humbuckers, and then “paint it black” and make it invisible. What you can’t see, because it’s now finished flat black, is the the LocTone locking Tune-o-matic and Stop-bar giving you monster sustain, but you will definitely hear it in this wizard’s sustain, and the thunder of its tone as you easily access all of its 22 frets. Distinctive additions include a Rosewood fingerboard with Roman numeral “XII” inlaid at 12th fret, Grover machine heads, and the blessing of an ancient “Celtic cross” insignia on headstock.

I rarely get these. I love their power wound pickups. Its a great machine…..

The Goth G-400…..Back in Black.

(From Epiphone)

This back in black menace definitely sends a message even before you play. The SG carve is bathed in Satin Black finish, accompanied by hot open-coil Humbuckers and Black-Chrome hardware:

  • Alnico classic humbuckers and the industry-standard Tune-O-Matic bridge.
  • Rosewood fretboard with 12th-fret “XII” inlay.
  • Angled Headstock
    Unlike cheaper designs, all Epiphones feature a 14-degree headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut and so you get more sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by “string-tree” gadgets.
  • Double-Waxed Pickups
    Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures optimum performance. The pickup is first placed in the specialized wax vacuuming system before the cover is put in place to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very center of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed on, it is again given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated with wax.
  • Output Jack
    To increase reliability and ensure consistent performance, Epiphone’s proprietary output jacks feature an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel.
  • Toggle Switches
    All Epiphones feature our all-metal, USA designed switches for reliable contact and longer life.
  • Tunomatic Bridge
    Fully adjustable, the tunomatic remains a classic after over 50 years. Unlike guitars fitted with tremolos, there are no tuning or re-stringing difficulties. Plus, tone and sustain are improved because all string vibrations are transferred directly to the guitar.
  • Potentiometers
    Epiphone is passionate about performance. That’s why their instruments use one-inch diameter potentiometers for better “throw,” longer life and reliable service.
  • Quick-Connectors
    For unequalled reliability as well as ease of service, Epiphone wiring harnesses feature quick-connectors.

Lorien Guitar Recovery Refurbished Instruments

In addition to selling newer factory refurbished instruments, Lorien Guitar Recovery is in the business of recovering unique older Epiphone, Squier, Mexican Fender, and other mid-range guitars for resale.

This instrument was refurbished by Lorien Guitar Recovery. Unlike a typical used guitar, this one was completely checked out, and tested by skilled guitar Technicians, and then put through a multi-point refresh and refurbish process

Our Refurbish Process

First we inspect the instrument for any physical or functional issues or damage. If the instrument has too much damage or does not meet minimum requirements, it is disassembled for parts and recycled; if it meets basic requirements it is refurbished. This is what we do:

  • All old hardware items that are damaged or non-functional are removed
  • All old strings are removed
  • All surfaces are treated and/or polished; dents and chips are repaired when appropriate
  • Rosewood pieces and fretboards are oiled with Lemon oil
  • Hardware is inspected, screws and nuts are tightened; non-functional pieces are replaced
  • Electronics, if present, are tested, and all contacts cleaned; broken electronics are replaced
  • Saddles and nuts are inspected, and if compromised, they are replaced.
  • The instrument is then re-assembled with new strings
  • The instrument receives a basic setup for playability.

Is it “Original”?

We try to stay “original”, but we never have the history of these older guitars, so we don’t know if they came to us already altered, so we never claim originality. But we do refresh a lot of older instruments and thus we can make intelligent guesses. Look to our descriptions as to the items we added or changed.

Our Mission

Too many used instruments get rejected, and tossed into a closet, or outright thrown away, or sent to thrift stores. And too many people, who should be able to learn an instrument, can’t afford to buy one or only one that is hard to play.

We believe every instrument should have a second chance, and every aspiring guitar player, should have a chance to buy a good guitar, at a fair price…. This is one of those guitars…. Don’t let it pass you by…. I offer my guitars at a fair price, but open the option for a best offer. We have to reject low-ball offers, but always consider honest ones. Try it; I may be in a good mood today! If you have a low budget or no budget, let us know. We’ll do our best to get you an instrument that is playable and affordable.

Thanks for Looking…
