Great Design Features!
While the SG-Express is a real SG, Epiphone has incorporated some unique design features to ensure outstanding performance. First, while the body is still mahogany, the neck on the SG-Express is Hard maple as opposed to the traditional mahogany neck. This gives the guitar a little more high-end "bite" or brighter tone which effectively offsets the slightly looser string tension due to the shorter scale length. Additionally, the combination of a fully-adjustable "fixed" bridge with a string-through body design fits perfectly with the SG-Express’ smaller size while adding sustain and making string changes a breeze. Finally, the neck is bolted in-place securely using 4- recessed bolts set into a tapered heel making upper fret access easier and very comfortable.
