Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Mahogany Asymmetrical SlimTaper Neck with Contoured Heel, Ebony Fingerboard and 2 Epiphone ProBuckers with CTS Pots
Though it takes its inspiration from a classic Gibson model, the Epiphone SG Modern Figured—like its name—is designed for the modern player with upgraded features and a unique AAA flame maple top. Featuring a classic all-mahogany body and highly playable asymmetrical SlimTaper neck profile with a contoured heel, the Epiphone SG Modern Figured will have you playing all night long.
A Classic SG with a Modern Flame
Maintaining its all-mahogany construction, the Epiphone SG Modern Figured adds a AAA flame maple top with a gloss finish that brings out the flame. This guitar may look like a hard-hitter, but it’s supremely comfortable to play. Its asymmetrical SlimTaper shape produces a neck that’s fast and pliable in the hand, but comfortable at the same time. You can say goodbye to that strain and cramping that often comes from frequent and heavy play. Additionally, the contoured heel joint gives you total access to the upper frets.
Powerful Epiphone ProBuckers
Epiphone ProBuckers have become one of the most talked about pickups in the industry. Epiphone ProBuckers are the real deal. They’re made with 18 percent nickel silver unit bases and covers—the same alloy used by Gibson at the Kalamazoo factory when the humbucker was first invented. The use of nickel silver works to reduce the occurrence of eddy currents due to low conductivity. It also provides a more transparent and crisp output. These ProBuckers are also powered with coil-splitting, phase switching and CTS electronics.
The Epiphone SG Modern Figured comes packaged with a LockTone ABR bridge, stopbar tailpiece and Grover Locking Rotomatic tuners with an 18:1 ratio for the most precise tuning capabilities. The tuners are capped off with tulip buttons for an extra sleek finish. Additionally, the Epiphone SG Modern Figured features a Graph Tech nut for a rich tone and sustain, pearl trapezoid inlays to match its ebony fingerboard and medium-jumbo frets.
Inspired by a Gibson Classic
Though its iconic contoured body shape takes inspiration from a Gibson classic, the Epiphone SG Modern Figured is built for the futuristic player. With high-quality and upgraded electronics, vintage-style hardware and distinctive look, this Inspired by Gibson Collection guitar will have you sounding like the rock icons that once inspired you, and who also played this axe.
