I am a former Gibson owner - my first guitar was a 1986 Gibson SG.I started playing guitar in 1987.Gibson owns Epiphone, it's their "value brand" - and let me tell you from personal experience: except for slightly generic-sounding pickups on the lower-end models, the Epiphones are so good that I don't bother even looking at the Gibsons anymore.Nowadays, with computer-controlled manufacturing, the consistency & the quality has gone up exponentially!And the prices have come down ALOT... except for the "lifestyle" that Gibson is selling nowadays.Truth be told, they are just playing to the baby-boomers that have the most expendable cash nowadays, and pricing themselves out of the reach of the average Joe garage band musician.Gibson makes a FINE instrument - don't get me wrong.They just charge waaaay too much for them.

HOORAY for Epiphone!You have a life-long customer in me.The playability is there, the finish was perfect, and the set-up was almost spot-on.All I did was change to my size/brand of strings, adjust the pickup height, and start rocking!I have never had to put my Epiphones in the shop - EVER.Now THAT'S an endorsement.

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.
