Replacement For epiphone.

Recommended Posts

I have an old G-400 SG epiphone, but i must repair it. The parts that i must change are:

- Bridge (tune-o-matic and Tailpiece)

- Turners

- Mounting ring

- Knobs

- Pickguard

 

For the bridge i must search a 2-29/32" (73.66) or a 2,913" (73.99 mm) Metric bridge? which is the correct?

I have already found the turners.

The gibson mounting rings and knobs doesn't fit. so i must search it online. I think i can found them on ebay. The principal problem is the pickguard, the gibson pickguard doesn't fit so i decide to have a personal pickguard made by a liuther. did you know if some shop have an SG G-400 Pickguard?

Epiphone hardware including knobs, pickup rings, pickguard and truss rod cover are not compatible with USA made parts like the ones used on Gibsons.

You must look for specific parts that say "for import size" in the description see the end of each page for Epiphone size.

Pickup Rings

Knobs

My guess is the spacing for the bridge is 2 7/8", 74mm similar to the one here Large bushing bridge

2-7/8 is 73,025, i think the distance of the posts is 2-29/32",like here, isn't it? the pickguard si very difficulty to found, beacause the productor given't you the specific so you don' know if it will fit on your guitar.
