Recently picked this up for £20! In UK. Done a bit of research I think it's an sg 400 maybe 400r? Could be wrong though.

By the serial code it was manufactured in samick in 1992.

I'm just looking for more info any help appreciated.

Looks like your regular G400. I had a 1998 that was pretty similar and weighted over 8 lbs. Good find at that price.

You meant to type £200 right?
Dont tell me you bought this for £20
Thats a robery
No typo here! Was £20 even came with a small peavey amp and leads 🤣 guess it was my lucky day it was only up for sale for a min and I'd already said I'd collect! Still not tried it out yet, new strings should arrive tomo but looks to be in pretty good condition.

If you want to take good photos of it, bring it outside in the shade. Your cam can't deal with reds and artificial lighting, like most.

G400 Epiphones were made since 1989
Samick factory in Korea was very good
I believe that you had the best of luck buddy, just get your guitar all set, and i am sure you will like it

£20 for this, with a small Peavey amp and leads, wow
Its was for free, you can basically upgrade everything on it and it will be still a good deal in the end. Does it have a long tenon right?

Jeeze-o-pete, that is the deal of century for the package you got there! Be sure and post pictures with the amp too. Some of that Peavey gear is not bad at all. The amp alone is worth twenty even if it's the bottom of the line. Tell me you didn't get a case as well, that would just be too hard for me to take! :naughty:

Yeah it actually looks alot darker than the photos suggest! I had to compress the photos too so I could post them so probably took even more quality off.

Here’s a similar one listed for US $441, seller in Germany:

Wow that would be some pretty good profit from £20. I'll definitely be hanging on to it for a while tho! Thank you

Wow... Just Wow. :shock: And here I thought I was doing well when I got my Epiphone Les Paul Junior for $60 US with a soft case and patch cord. The deal you got is once in a lifetime.

That’s a steal. Cheapest G400 I ever got cost me £90 which was super cheap. These days probably worth around £150-£200 depending on condition…

DOT inlays and KLUSON Creambucker pickups make this Epi a real collector .....

The G400R was only made in 1990.
No idea about their price in UK

Actually this would be a G-400 R because it has a bound neck. When we added it to the Epiphone Wiki, the 1990 example was the only we'd ever seen. This is the first I've ever seen with the clipped ear headstock.
