3 other things I've noticed about these 2020 Epi SGs is they don't have either neck dive or neck wobble issues like some of the Gibson models of past 10 yrs.
They also don't have a slippy/unstable G string and stay in tune better than Gibson LPs and SGs. Mine was flawless in the store and there's not many gibsons you can say that about anymore unfortunately
Very cool guitar! Congrats . Although Waxhead may have answered the question in the above comment, is it neck heavy at all?
Every Epi SG I have played has been is the reason for the question.
Otherwise very cool looking guitar!
Congrats Tony. Great looking SG and I appreciate your feedback on the guitar in general.
Should be fine with the plastic tulip tuners. Those, or the white button tuners, effectively deal with the neck dive situation. Grovers? Not so much.
Nice guitar Cap'n Sims! Epi gets better every year. They are turning out some stellar instruments. Like you, I love SGs and have several. One of my treasures is an older 1966 Epi reissue with a beautiful satin finish, killer neck and some Vineham PAFs in it. Hot damn!
Enjoy your new beauty.
definitely no neck dive with the 2020 Epi SGs - they balance perfect
Looks good, i like it in black, happy playing.
Wish I could agree, but mine dives ever so slightly. I’m used to it with SG’s though. Think I’ve only ever had one that wasn’t a diver. Should kept it, but I got it on a trade and the guy wound up wishing he had it back(it was a GREAT one!). Me being a softy(or idiot, whichever you prefer), I had to give him back his beloved guitar.
Man? This Epi is EXCELLENT quality! Like TOTALLY satisfying! If you don’t need it to say “Gibson”, don’t spend more. This knocks it out of the park in every way.
You DO have me considering SD’s now though for NO REASON! AGHHH!
Well I should have said no neck dive on mine using a 2" leather strap
Sorry about the Pearly Gates tip but they are THE best humbuckers I've ever had.
Very versatile, medium output, excellent clarity and give the SG a bit more cut and spitfire
When I first looked at it I thought wow beautiful. A black version of my Gibson SG Standard but as I read on and realized it was Epiphone I did a double take and when I looked at it I am totally shocked at the beauty of the guitar neck and headstock! Epi has just given Gibson a run for it's money. Congratulations on the nice guitar you have
Congrats Tony, that looks fantastic. Nice pics help!

I’ve actually never liked speed knobs. Aesthetically I don’t dig them as much as top hats(they just give that little bit of color punch), and speed knobs can be difficult if you are really sweating and earning your gig! Lol
I had an Epi G400 12 years ago. I was trying out new and different guitars. Up to that point I had always been a Strat guy. I don't know why it never occurred to me before but I never gave a second thought about neck profiles until I first held the wonderful thick chunky neck of that Epi. Ever since then I always look for a fat neck. SGs are great guitars.
She's a beauty Cap'n!
Finally got delivery of a few new guitars myself this month - some bought back in Feb and March.
Feeling overwhelmed actually
In a good way !
Congratulations Cap'n Tony! That is a black beauty indeed. And of course, a Bigsby on there would instantly cure any neck dive tendencies.
Beautiful - looks like a complete set!
