Epiphone body wood question


Mass

Recommended Posts

It's some variety of mahogany.

 

Thanks for your help! I thought as much. I never knew how light V's were compared to some of my strats.

This is my first V. By the way...............

Would you happen to know what the stock pups are in this V?

Are they the typical OEM uncovered 496R and 500T humbuckers?

 

Thanks again,

Mass

Most likely some species of Philippine mahogany with a Korina veneer.

 

No, they are uncovered AlNiCo Classics, with a regular pickup in the neck and a 'Hot' version in the bridge.

 

496R/500T pickups are ceramic and are only found on the genuine Gibson version.

Well thank you for the help...

 

I could have sworn I had an Epiphone SG G-400 w/ those 496R/500T pickups I bought new.

I didn't know they were only on Gibson models....unless we are confused.

If they are the Alnico classics as you point out, could you fill me in on the specs on them?

 

Thanks again!

There is the abomination of the 650r/700t that is the lil ceramic wannabe equivalent of the Gibson 496/500t.

The wonderful Epi LP Special II is armed with them.
