Hi,

I think my Epi SG lacks sustain and i'm planning to switch the bridge.

Any recommandations for a fixed bridge that would please me ?

Thanks.

what epiphone sg do you have?


Epiphone G400.

I already changed the crappy stock pickups but I still think it needs some more work...

Yep. Warp over bridge might help. It also make the strings a bit more loose for easier bending.

I say you need to work on your vibrato, good vibrato can extend sustain by a huge amount so work on that first; a guitar like that shouldn't need to be changed to get good sustain.

Not really a more fixed bridge then you already have. All you really can do is another brand of TOM bridge anything else will require more holes.

This guitar hasn't got a vibrato though... it's a fixed bridge.

i just wrapped the strings over the tailpiece on my G-400 a few days ago and that has helped with the sustain. try that before buying anything new.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

yeah to who ever said it doesnt have a vibrato, its the technique.
and, you should work on your vibratos, and what pups do you have in it now?
and do you use any pedals?
what is your amp?
maybe its just a setting problem?
you should be able to get decent sustain, after all, its a neck through right?
EDIT: i was beaten to it for the vibrato thing

I replaced the pups with Gibson's (490R/498T "Gibson SG Standard") because the Alnico V were too crappy.
I have a Fender Super Champ XD and hardly use any pedals for the moment.
And it's not a neck-through unfortunately, it's a set-neck.

Try wrapping the string around the tilpeice


How would this make a difference?
