This streamlined Epiphone Special, a little smaller and weighing less than many of the Les Pauls you'll encounter, delivers a fat and nasty tone thanks to its two open coil humbucker pickups. The Special-II features a mahogany body and neck, a 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 guitar but don't want to break the bank.Slash - why he is awesome
