Special II - A Les Paul at an Amazing Price!A streamlined Epiphone Special at an amazing price! A little smaller and weighing less than many of the Les Paul axes you'll encounter, the Special II nonetheless delivers a fat and nasty tone thanks to its two open coil humbucker pickups. The Special ii features a mahogany body and neck, rosewood fretboard with a 1.68" nut width, chrome hardware, and volume/tone controls. This is the "go-to" guitar for those who want to learn on a Les Paul style quitar but don't want to break the bank.

by Jerky from United StatesI've owned hundreds of guitar in over 40 years of playing, own around 60 at the moment. I got this guitar as a second so was really cheap, China made 2011 (even at the selling price new it's a real ba... read more [+]ng for the buck.) I was a guitar tech/repair guy so have experience with how guitars work. There were a few issue's which are easily fixed...The neck bolts where they screw into the neck were loose. To fix these the neck needs to be removed and the original holes need to be dowled and re-drilled, or an easy fix is to insert a few toothpicks with some white glue which I did and now have a tight neck joint. Tuners are cheap but work well enough. Now the good.....the neck is very well done, frets ends smooth and level with very good playability. Finish is very well done. Body wood appears to be basswood, not a bad thing, gives a focused midrange sound. Volume/tone pots are full sized Alpha pots, nice sweep through their range, switch seems solid enough. The bridge and stop-bar tailpiece are the tone-lock, works well and seems to give good sustain. Pickups are Ceramic 8, good clear midrange and highs with tight bass. A lot of cheap humbuckers are muddy but these are actually very good, not the most dynamic but at the price much better than most. I like the thin body, sits on your lap nicely, overall weight is good. I reach for this over my Gibson Les Paul's a lot, just easier on my back. The control layout is nice, one volume, one tone, simple and efficient. This would be a good beginner guitar, good playability and sound. Also would make a good worry free gigging instrument unless you are worried about the name on the headstock....and really your audience won't care unless there are some cork sniffers in the crowd. This is a good time for musicians when you can get good quality for this price...just get it setup properly and you will have a fine instrument. close [-]

Best guitar you can buy for the money
by Joe from FloridaThis guitar has served me quite well on my travels around the world over the past several years. It is tough, and sounds great. An awesome value for beginners or as an inexpensive travel guitar.

by Paul M from MissouriThis is one awesome guitar for the price paid. The sound that the humbuckers put out is amazing and sweet as long as you have a good Amp.
