Real Les Paul tone and feel for beginners or pros.

This is a limited edition version of Epiphone's number one selling model available with a choice of "worn" finishes. The Epiphone Ltd Ed Special-I is a great way for beginners to get started on guitar with real Les Paul tone and feel. But seasoned pros love the Special-I also because it's a great-sounding, workhorse guitar that lets them leave their more expensive axes at home.

The authentic LP power starts with an basswood, trademarked Les Paul body with a bolted-on "1960's" SlimTaperâ„¢ mahogany neck featuring a 21-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. The Special-I is voiced by a pair of hot open-coil Epiphone 700T and 650R humbucker pickups, giving it massive, unmistakable Les Paul tone. Like all of Epiphone's electric guitars, it comes standard-equipped with 500K potentiometers for the master volume and master tone controls, plus Epiphone's heavy-duty 3-way pickup selector toggle switch and exclusive non-rotating heavy-duty output jack. This value-champ also now features nickel hardware including an intonated, one-piece wraparound bridge-stopbar.

  • great guitar!!!

    As reviewed by dave on 5/30/2011

    i got mine for on sale in tv yellow.. i have played lots of cheap guitars over the years but this is by far the best. the action is nice and low and the satin finish is awesome. I'm putting in a Duncan pickup and Grover tuners today. the best bang for your buck you can get

  • newest addition to my collection.

    As reviewed by nicole montelli on 11/29/2011

    well i originally bought one of the squire strats but when i unboxed it there were chips in the paint..tuner heads looked like they wanted to pop off..and it just looked like there was no time spent putting it i took that back and picked up one of these...i wish i purchased this first..i didnt want to get a les paul at first because i felt that they were too heavy..but this one is just perfect its not too light or too heavy..when i took it out of the box everything was perfect just had to tune it up and ready to go..there was even a sticker, a poster, and an extra cable in the box. i had an epiphone sg in the past and you can tell they take there time and pay attention to detail when they asseble their guitars... i got this one in the worn cherry color which looks fanastic...ill probably just stick to buying epiphone guitars from now on.

  • Incredible Value

    As reviewed by Randy Flick on 6/11/2011

    I got this because I wanted an inexpensive electric that I could keep at work, use with GarageBand and not worry about (easily replaceable for very little $$$). To say I was impressed is an understatement. First off, tuning and intonation were dead on... and I hadn't even changed the strings. The fretwork on the neck was far above what I have experienced with Epiphone Custom Shop releases costing hundreds of dollars more... Seriously. I have colleagues at work who perform professionally (no, seriously, these guys know everybody)... and they all commented on what a nice guitar this would be to just "have around" whenever they wanted to jam a little. The only downside? The Epiphone engraved plate on the back where the neck bolts screw in is UPSIDE DOWN! English as a foreign language continues to be a challenge for Quality Control throughout the world. Buy this guitar. You won't be disappointed... seriously.
