I've done a rather crude experiment by clicking back and forth between the G400 and the special on the Epi website. The main difference is obviously due to the set in vs. bolt on neck and the relative positions of the end of the fretboards. However, the pickups look to have exactly the same distance between them, which I would suggest is the rate limiting step for the fitting of a '61 style SG scratchplate.
Here's a European source for an SG scratchplate:
I think the Goldo make is pretty good and if it doesn't fit the officially 'licensed' copy of the SG then it would probably not fit much else.
Can you get your local music store to order you one on a sale or return basis? Mine has offered to do that sort of thing in the past.

You should e-mail goldo and ask. I would imagine it to be for a gibson though.
