I purchased this pack around December of 2006. I love the guitar... speed knobs, smooth neck, great sound-it's no gibson- but it sounds great! The 10-watt amp is good enough for at home practice but if you plan on playing in a band or performing of any kind then you need to look into a larger amp. The cable that comes with it shorted out on me after a month of play but cables are inexpensive so that wasn't that big of a deal... anywhoo... this is a great guitar for beginners and is well worth the money.

Good Guitar

By Devin

from Modesto,C.A.

Good guitar. I played it at GuitarCenter and it sounded great. I plugged it into a Line 6 1x12 amp and it was awesome. I myself am looking into getting one.

Very disappointed and no satisfaction

By Not a Les Paul fan

from Detroit, MI

Purchased this online (early) for Christmas for our son (beginner) and right off the bat the amp didn't work. They first made us wait until they sent a new cord--which was a waste of time because we had already done the troubleshooting and knew it was the amp. Of course, it still ddn't work. So, we packaged it back up and returned it so we could purchase at a store. They didn't have any in stock, so they had to order one (we had to pay shipping). Once that arrived and we drove to store (1/2 hour) to pick up they checked the amp and it worked. When we got home, my son went to flip the toggle and it came off in his hand. They wanted to repair it, but we didn't want to do that, so we ordered another one through the store but had it shipped to our house. When it came in there was a crack all the way through the face of the guitar--I am not making this up. So...after 3 tries, we finally returned it and purcased a Laguna Ultimate Rock Electric Pack--a definite upgrade, especially on the amp. So, on February 6, my son finally got his Christmas present.

Great Guitar

By J Carlson

from Pinehurst NC

This is a really good guitar. It has great sound and comes with a good but kind of small amp. I wish this guitar came with a little distortion box to sound like a rock-heavy metal guitar. Overall this was a very awesome and great guitar. And it was worth the price.

great beginner

By eric

from paramus

ive been playing for about a year and this was the first guitar i got to learn to play. the guitar itself is great quality. its been dropped and no damage has come of this. i also bring this to parties so i dont damage my new lp standard, and you can imagine the wear it takes from that. the amp is small but in small venues can still be heard over my buddies 30w bass playing. the amp works well with the guitar but not with any other guitars really. same for the guitar. its made for the 10w apm and trying to play on any other amps just doesnt sound right. the tuner works well and if you need a quick tuning you dont even have to plug it in cause of the mic. the only problem i have is that the cables that come with any epiphone guitar have been damaged pretty easily. the insulation on the first one i had got twisted off from sitting on my bed and playing. the second that came with my standard had to be taped up because the insulation started separating from the plug as if it had been wire stripped. i would recomend this to any beginer but once you progress like i did, upgrade to a better guitar and amp

Epiphone

By Tim

from Montrose, Michigan

This guitar is pretty nice for a beginner guitar.I bought it in December of 2007.When I first got it, I loved it. But after playing it for awhile,the chrome on the tailpiece started to bubble and peel. My bridge pickup started rusting, and it doesn't hold that great of tune. But the tone is pretty good, not so much with the 10 watt amp it comes with but with my Laney 60 watt amp it sounds pretty good. The cord it came with shorted out the first or second day I had it. So look into buying a cord when you buy the guitar.But other than these small and inexpensive flaws, the guitar is nice.

Guitar is great but save up for a new amp

By Bruce

from PA

I have been playing guitar for less than a year and this starter pack is great. The guitar is very nice - had some fret buzzing at first but not any more since its broken in. The included amp is good enough to get you started, but after you learn how to play some songs you will want to get a better one with more bass, more punch, and effects. Just got a Spider IV 15W amp and it sounds great with this guitar. So buy this starter pack now and save up for a new amp in about 6 months.

Epiphone Les Paul Special II - Customer Service disappointment

By Tim

from Riverside, CA

Received it with the toggle switch damaged. The guitar, itself, sound decent. They couldn't send me another one until they received the damaged one. I called them to see if they received it, which the agent told me they did. I asked if the could expedite the shipment and he said he would so it should arrive on Friday. I called back late that Friday, another agent said they never received the original damage. I got upset and he double checked and corrected himself. Then, however, he said it would not arrive until Monday (this was a big deal because originally I ordered it way early). Therefore, I cancelled. Bottomline, disappointed in the agents and timeliness of delivery and the fact that first one was damaged. May be better to avoid online purchase and go to the store, IMHO.

no

By me

from chapel hill, nc

I got this as my first guitar and amp and i hated it. It was a chore to play, the frets buzzed even after adjusting the action and the truss rod, it was just cumbersome and didnt feel right in my hands. I decided to trade it in and so i bought a small fender practice amp and an epiphone g-400. That was definitly the right decision, the g-400 sounds great and is light and comfortable so you can play for hours on end. Dont get this package. On a similar note dont get squires either, the wood actually falls apart and everything on the guitar just gets loose and falls off.
