This guitar blew me away when I first heard its sound its incredible this guitar fits best metal and punk perfecly! I've experimented with other types of music and its not good for slow calm music like jazz but that isn't why I bought it. The sound is amazing it has an amazing metal sound very nice distrtion.

Overall Impression — 10
If you enjoy playing punk and metal music this is the guitar you should be picking up, if it were stolen I would buy a new one because I love it so much, I love the sound more then anything I love the x carved through it the dents and the inlays are pretty awsome there x, so it matches the hole through the guitar.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar will definately last the hardware is solid pluss you could dent it and it wouldent matter it would fit in with the ones that came with the guitar and the finish seems like it will last quite a long time.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
This guitar has perfect action its not low but its also not extremely high off of the neck the picups are ajusted to be a few centimete4rs lower then the strings. This guitar looks like it ios in poor quality but its the way it is designed so the quality is great.

This model is a 2002 model I believe it has 22 fretts two nobs one vloume one tone features two humbuckers and a three way selector togle Switch. It is a solid top guitar and has a tune o matic bridge. The finish is black, this guitar is bizzre its the normal shape of an SG guitar but there is an x carved right through the guitar and dents all over the body this is not a defect it is the way it is made at the factory and the neck is bolt on.

    it looks like a cheap version of the goth sg, the pickups have no brackets, the headstock looks cheap, if you're writing this review with no other guitar to compare to, your opinions useless

    dude, one comment. the amp you're using gives it the cool distortion, not the guitar! and about the action... most are adjustable.

    dude, i miss this guitar, i would give it a solid 9, not a 10.....it plays well and looks brutal i have played it through every peavey amp i have come across and it sheds on all of them....not a fast playing guitar, so not really for soloing, but more for rhythm playing

    A guitar's pickups, body and hardware can all affect the distortion, actually.

    henza_x : it looks like a cheap version of the goth sg,
    on opposite day, which is never. u probly didnt even see the right picture of the guitar. u r just judging cuz it is epiphone. and i think that if a guitar sucked balls a person would know even if that was their only guitar.
