Since Epiphone introduced the G-310 over 15 years ago, it has been the go-to instrument for those wanting real SG tone and styling at an economical price. Every serious player wants an SG, and here's a real one that sounds as good as it looks. The original SG not only rivaled guitars of its own era for sonic variety, but also proved to be a sign of things to come. Hard rock, metal, and scores of rockers embraced the original SG and made it a classic. The G-310 gives you the sound and look of a real SG without the vintage price tag.
The G-310 uses the same dimensions and build techniques as vintage SGs made in the Kalamazoo factory in the '60s. The '67 style solid tone rich mahogany carved body gives the guitar a balanced feel on stage and in the studio (unlike cheap imitations that tend to be neck-heavy). The SlimTaper™ "D" profile mahogany neck has a 24.75" scale with 22 frets and a 12" radius for incredible reach thanks to the SG's classic cutaway. And for that one-of-a-kind SG feel, the G-310 has a rosewood fingerboard with a 1.68" nut.
Epiphone always finds a way to make subtle but important improvements on our classic designs and the G-310 is no exception. The G-310's power comes from our special red- hot open-coil humbuckers with Alnico magnets featuring a 650R humbucker in the neck position and a 700T humbucker in the bridge position for killer classic tone with modern punch.
Epiphone leads the way in manufacturing in making great sounding guitars for players of all levels and that goes for our great hardware, too. Epiphone provides quality all-metal hardware on all its instruments including full function volume and tone knobs using full-size 500K potentiometers matched with Epiphone's rugged all-metal 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance.

The SG Story:
When the SG or "Solid Guitar" was introduced in 1961 as a replacement for the Les Paul, it was called the "fretless wonder" for its low frets and fast action. The twin horn cutaway design was like nothing on the market and its light but balanced weight made it the perfect guitar for stage and studio. Later '60s models introduced the SG with humbucker pickups, and since then, the SG has gone on to became the go-to guitar for artists like The Who's Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC's Angus Young, and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band.
