Arriving Soon Notify me

Appetite for Destruction!

Designed by Slash himself, the AFD Les Paul Special-II has more appointments than most of Sweetwater's other entry-level electric guitars. Topped with AAA flame maple, this guitar also features a dark cherry mahogany body and neck, ivory binding, and a silk print of Slash's Snakepit logo on the headstock. The first time you plug into a high-gain amp, the AFD Les Paul Special-II's Ceramic Plus Zebra-coil humbuckers will treat you to the thick, overdriven, screaming metallic tone that Slash made famous. Complete with a premium gig bag, signature guitar picks, and eMedia online lessons, the Epiphone Slash AFD Les Paul Special-II Outfit is a great bundle for beginners or anybody who is searching for a quality, affordable electric guitar.

Epiphone Slash "AFD" Les Paul Special-II Outfit at a Glance:
  • The Epiphone Les Paul Special-II - a real Les Paul at an amazing price
  • Slash - why he is awesome
The Epiphone Les Paul Special-II - a real Les Paul at an amazing price

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

Known primarily for his work with the hard rock band Guns N' Roses during the late 1980s, Slash has garnered a well-earned reputation as one of rock's preeminent guitarists. Named the runner-up on Time magazine's list of "The 10 Best Electric Guitar Players" in 2009, and ranking 65 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" in 2011, Slash continues to receive accolades from critics and music fans alike. Aside from his enormous success with Guns N' Roses, Slash has also achieved acclaim with his side project, Slash's Snakepit, and as a member of the supergroup Velvet Revolver. In 2012, Slash received one of rock music's highest honors when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Epiphone Slash "AFD" Les Paul Special-II Outfit Features:
  • AAA flame maple top, dark cherry body, and ivory binding for stunning appearance
  • Ceramic Plus Zebra-coil humbuckers deliver Slash's signature tone
  • Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece produce excellent tone and sustain

Please Don't Wait.

Guys, I'm not kidding....buy this thing. I'm not gonna sit here and type out all my accolades as a musician. None of that matters or means anything to you...what does matter is this guitar. Please don't let the brand, price or so called "marketing" for beginners sway you. This guitar is 1) Beautiful, bright and vibrant. Absolutely show-stopping color. 2) Light as a feather. Les Pauls are heavy by nature. More wood will do that even when they are cavernously designed. This is a flat body and is great to play for a show. 3) The Tune-O-Matic bridge is great and coupled with proper string height on the great stock nut, you can get great action on this with very little, if any, fret buzz. 4) The neck is small and the frets are dressed nicely. Smooth as can be to slide around. 5) Finally...The Pick-ups. Zebra Humbucking Pick-Ups. A nice, high output awesome Rock sound and when you adjust your tone and volume knobs, you can really shape the sound to playing great jazz rhythm and lead lines. I did some cosmetic changes to mine. Purchased vintage Les Paul tuners, trapezoid fret inlay stickers and strap-locks. But like I said, its PURELY COSMETIC and looks cool. Makes it look much more expensive than it actually is, however, they are not needed. Not to mention the built in Shadow Tuner. Are you kidding me?! What a value, super bright and chromatic at that for all sorts of fun and funky tunings. All that being said, this is my daily driver. I have an MIM Strat and I've owned various Ibanez and Epiphones before. Those are all gone because this thing is so RAD.

Great Guitar

This is a fantastic guitar for the price point. If your on the fence, don't think twice about buying it. Great action right out of the box. Strings that ship on it are usable but you probably should change those out ASAP. Did I mention it is a beautiful guitar... This is my second guitar purchase from Sweetwater and I couldn't be more pleased.
5/5

Great Les Paul for the money

Plays well. Frets easy. Has great sound. Really like the tuning pickup. For the money its a really great deal. Slash did a good job on the upgrades. Plus the finish looks great too. Most inexpensive Las Paul you'll see and still plays well. And I,ve been playing since the '70's.
