      Epiphone Special II Plus Top Limited Edition Electric Guitar (430855)
Availability:  


A great lookinging limited edtion with a flamed maple top and screaming pickups.

Since it's introduction almost 20 years ago, The Special-II has met the needs of countless musicians with its combination of Les Paul features, great tone and affordability. The Special II Plus Top Limited Edition Electric Guitar Made with a flamed maple top, mahogany body, bolt-on mahogany neck, smooth 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, this baby is every bit as handsome as its uptown cousins.

Providing the sizzle and snarl that you can only get from humbuckers is a 650R (neck) and 700T (bridge) pickup combo. You'll be amazed how these U.S.A. designed pickups with their high-output magnets add more highs with increased definition and no muddiness. Slightly over-wound, the hotter 700T bridge pickup is smooth but can give you a little extra scream or growl when you need it while never losing its rich combination of enhanced lows and crystal clear highs.


Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

  • Flamed maple top

  • Good but could be better......

    As reviewed by Anthony Clark on 5/12/2014

    Well, I might as well write a review on this guitar to help other potential buyers out. If you are thinking about buying this guitar, all I can honestly say is go ahead and get it but realize one thing.....you WILL need to do a setup and possible pickup replacement. I bought this guitar in the sunburst color because they only had one blue one and it was in a store. I don't know about the rest of you but I am NOT going to pay full price on a guitar that is in the store and everyone had handled. If I am going to pay full price, then I want a new one in the box. Now besides all of that, on with the review..... The Guitar plays fine after a setup. Neck, pickup height, and intonation adjustments. You know, basic stuff. After playing it thru a solid state amp and playing it thru a tube amp, I come to realize that the stock pickups were in dire need of replacement to make this guitar sound great. I bought the Seymour Duncan Hot Rodded Humbucker Set. SH-2 Jazz model at the neck and SH-4 model at the bridge. I also had a guitar tech wire it for coil splitting, install push/pull pots at the vol and tone, and install a switchcraft jack. Now this guitar sounds GREAT! After these mods, I couldn't be happier with the guitar and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg to do them. Like I said at the beginning, you will have to do a setup and possible pickup replacement to get this guitar to play and sound the way you want it to. Other than all of this, the frets and the overall fit and finish are good. Hope this review helps.

  • Not Perfect But Still Awesome

    As reviewed by Glenn Thomas on 4/18/2014

    I travel a lot and wanted the cheapest guitar I could find (that was still playable) to take through airports in a padded bag so I could jam at the hotel all week. I found this amazingly bright sounding gem that beat out the other guitars I was looking at because it was $149.00 in a sale GC had running a few months ago and it played better than some that cost a lot more. I play it every day and still like it for many reasons. It's much lighter than my Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe (60's next), sounds great through my Yamaha THR-10C with a good range of tones for such a cheap guitar, and, like I just said, it's cheap. Cons (Title does say not perfect)... One of the tuning pegs was not mounted straight and it's kind of a pain to change strings because the string winder hits the head. Terrible fret buzz on fret 16. When I bend the string it goes away so I don't think that fret is level. Not sure if I can raise the action to get rid of it. I consider it my travel beater so not really crazy about it being perfect and will do a setup on it when I have time. Everything else is good. It comes in a variety of really tacky colors but I found a transparent blue one that actually looks pretty cool. I would highly recommend this based on the quality to price ratio. GC sells a little travel guitar that seemed like absolute junk and cost a few hundred more, and this fits fine in the overhead bin of an airplane. Just take your time checking it out and you can avoid the things I found, just have them rip open another box and try another one. Like I said, not perfect, but still worth 5 stars based on the sound I get out if it together with the price.

  • Great guitar!

    As reviewed by Eric Ward on 2/3/2014

    I still consider myself a beginner, and this is the first electric guitar I've ever purchased. I bought it to use with Rocksmith 2014 after the electronics on my Ibanez acoustic/electric quit working out of nowhere. I've got to say, this is a great beginner guitar (at least from what I can tell). It feels good, plays well, and looks amazing. The color of mine (transparent blue) is actually a little more teal/green than the picture, but it is still beautiful. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an inexpensive starter guitar that is still a good quality piece and won't let you down like a cheap knock-off brand.
