A worn finish and tweaked tone controls give it distinction.

Since its introduction almost 20 years ago, The Special-II has been a favorite of countless musicians with its combination of classic Les Paul features, great tone and affordability. Now, Epiphone puts a new twist on this classic with the Special-II GT. Like the Special-II, this is a full-on, in- your-face rockin' machine with all the same features (and more!) that you've come to expect from Epiphone.
As with all Epiphones, the Special II GT comes with our Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service. Wrap it all up in a thin "worn" vintage style black color finish with a price tag that any guitarist can afford and you've got an Epiphone classic made just for you.

Case sold separately.

    As reviewed by mitymouse on 4/21/2011

    Just bought this guitar from GC! I'm in love!!!! I've only scratched the surface of learning to play guitar, but man has this thing changed my level from frustrated to infatuated!!!!! I have'nt even taken the time to put the whammy on it yet, and i've had it a month now. It's hard for me to find the desire to attach it yet, havin too much fun the way it is for now!!!! Lovin it!!!

  • A Thing of Beauty

    As reviewed by Erik Carrera on 1/3/2012

    I've been playing my ESP MH-50 for about 3 years now. It was time for my second guitar. These economic times forced me to go below $200. I researched many options and just kept coming back to thie Epiphone GT. I bought it and am just in love with it. The clean tone on it is amazing and the pickups are hot!!!! Any effect sounds great!!! I jam to Alice in Chains all the way to clasical. Sounds great with all effects. I use DigiTech custom distortion and it rips the hell out of it!!! Buy it!!!

  • great guitar... low sustain

    As reviewed by Jacob Ulery on 12/30/2011

    This guitar is excellent, it has great low end while maintaining a good high end. There's just two problems, this guitar has a low sustain and it goes out of tune when you use the whammy too much. When you use the whammy you can even hear the guitar going out of tune making little clicks every now and then witch ruins the sustain of the whammied note.
