For the money that I had paid for this guitar I didn't really expect much. But when it was delivered and I opened the box I was surprised. The finish was absolutely beautiful (ebony). But what good are the looks if it doesn't play well. After tuning it up and tightening the input jack I gave it a whirl. WOW. Though the humbuckers are not as good as on the Gibsons, they held their own. After stretching the stock strings, they didn't go out of tune. I believe that the bolt on neck had plenty of sustain even though the neck is not a set one. I know that the G-310 I bought is an excellent example. If you buy an example like mine, you will have a fine guitar for very little money. Hey, I might buy another!

Product Description:
Based on the 1967 SG, the Epiphone G-310 has all the SG style and features you want, but with bolt-neck affordability. It also has a full pickguard and sports two hot open-coil Humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls.

SG style and features with bolt-neck affordability.

Twin open-coil humbuckers and the industry-standard Tune-O-Matic bridge.
Rosewood fretboard with dot inlays.
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.
Epiphone is passionate about performance. That's why their instruments use one-inch diameter potentiometers for better "throw," longer life and reliable service.
For unequalled reliability as well as ease of service, Epiphone wiring harnesses feature quick-connectors.
