Epiphone’s SG Modern Figured is the perfect 6-string companion for players who covet a guitar that stands out from the crowd. This solidbody electric guitar puts a fresh spin on the familiar SG body shape, with a mahogany body, a thick maple top, and an eye-catching top veneer. A set-in mahogany neck and SlimTaper profile encourage you to explore the upper limits of your playing prowess. Plug into your favorite amplifier or modeler, and the SG Modern Figured’s ProBucker humbucking pickups deliver high-output tones with undeniable vintage flavor. You also get a treble bleed circuit and coil-splitting capabilities, which help you tap into more tones than ever before. Choose the Epiphone SG Modern Figured and rock the stage and studio with a combination of classic panache and contemporary style.

A different take on the SG body

This version of the SG puts a new twist on the classic SG body style. The Epiphone SG Modern Figured comes with a resonant mahogany body for a solid sonic foundation. Then, they add a 0.75-inch maple top to the mix, which adds an extra dose of bright trebles and a snappy attack. Finally, the guitar has a AAA flame maple top veneer for attention-demanding good looks. While some might label the construction as slightly unorthodox, there's no mistake: this guitar sounds absolutely incredible from the second you plug it in.

Experience the PAF magic with ProBucker pickups

Your new SG Modern Figured comes equipped with a pair of an Epiphone ProBucker 2 in the neck position and a ProBucker 3 in the bridge position. Descended from the renowned PAF humbuckers of yesteryear, ProBuckers deliver an old-school tone with the bite and clarity demanded by contemporary music. That’s not all, though. This guitar comes complete with a treble bleed circuit to preserve your trebles when rolling the volume back. Finally, you get coil-splitting capabilities to expand the range of available tones even further.

Comfortable neck carve

The SG Modern Figured’s set-in neck is constructed from resonant mahogany. The artisans at Epiphone carve this neck into the brand’s signature Asymmetrical SlimTaper neck profile. The Slim Taper neck profile is beloved among guitar players at Music Experience for its speed and playability. It leaves just enough wood in your hand to feel sleek without slowing you down. Whether you’re ripping riffs in the lower frets or exploring new territory on the upper frets, the SlimTaper neck profile is ready for action.
