An affordable model with a mahogany body, bolt-on neck and dual humbuckers.

Epiphone's #1 selling model LP Special II is a great way for beginners to get started on guitar while getting the feel and tone of a Les Paul. Seasoned pros will also love the Special II because it's a great-sounding workhorse of a guitar that allows them to leave their more expensive axes at home.

  • Amazing guitar for the value

    As reviewed by John on 5/1/2015

    I bought this guitar after playing it for about 30 minutes at my local Guitar Center. I couldn't believe how good it sounded. I bought it as soon as I was done playing. I'm no beginner, nor am I an expert, but I play a lot and I have many other guitars. This one has now become my new go to for recording and playing live. The neck has amazing action. I can't tell any difference in playing from my strat to this, which is very nice. If anything, this plays smoother than my strat. If you are thinking about it, but still on the fence, just buy it, you won't regret it.

  • Great Guitar, Few Draw Backs

    As reviewed by Sean on 12/26/2014

    I would rate this guitar 5 stars, however there are only a few minor things that hold it back a little bit. The first is it's color and shape. It looks like and egg in my opinion. I bought a specific design because it does not look like the others but is. It isn't shown here and is hard to find on the internet. It has a deep blue edge (opposed to red as the most popular) with a lighter blue sunburst strip in the middle (instead of the yellow in the same design). If it weren't for this saving grace I'd rate it at 3 stars. The second is no pick guard. If it had one it would be improved greatly. But I understand why it doesn't because a pick guard would be more expensive and this is leaning to the beginner's side of the spectrum. Regardless, it would play the same with the pick guard. Third, and the biggest, is the amount of nobs and the lack of variety. There are only two nobs on the guitar: Volume and Tone. The Volume works perfectly. But contrary to other Les Pauls, there is only one Tone nob instead of four. It still works, I prefer to leave it at either 4 or 6, but there aren't as many options. This is where I find it hard whether to rate it 4 or 5 stars. It comes down to how advanced you are. I'm not a beginner, but I'm not an expert. My biggest flaw is I have very little knowledge of what the tone nobs actually do and I can't tell the difference. I like it because of the simplicity. Advanced players, in my own personal experience, can't play without the tone nobs being right. That paragraph was getting to long... For the third flaw, it depends. If you're advanced it is still an amazing guitar, it just lacks one thing. If you're starting out or are like me you'll be blown away by the quality of it. I'll end with a few things I liked very much about the guitar: The inlays are dots, the simplicity of the nobs, the ease of playing (and bending), clarity of Rhythm setting, volume nob, placement of Rhythm/Lead setting switch, pick ups aren't plated. Thanks for reading!
