Epiphone Les Paul Special II Electric Guitar
There’s a reason the Les Paul Special II is Epiphone’s number one selling electric guitar model as it offers the great sound and feel of the Gibson Les Paul axe at a price tag that will work for nearly any budget. The mahogany build of the LP Special II’s body and bolt-on neck gives this guitar a full and warm tone that especially favors tight lows, making it perfect for hard rock styles. A pair of open-coil Epiphone 700T and 650R humbucker pickups drives the sound of this instrument, and with the built-in pickup switch, you can customize the tone to your liking.
And the look of this thing just screams finesse. It’s got a classic appearance that immediately calls to mind all the greats who have previously rocked Les Paul axes, and its 22-fret rosewood fingerboard offers dot inlays that are of great use to players who are just learning. But don’t mistake this as an option solely designed for beginners; even intermediate players will welcome this fine-sounding, sturdy guitar into their collection. Played through the right amp, it can be quite a capable axe that you can take on-stage and on the road with confidence.
