This guitar is amazing. If I were blindfolded and handed one of these to play on, I would assume it cost at least five times as much as it does. I've been the lead guitarist, as well as a rhythmist, for multiple bands. I've played just about every major brand I can think of. Gibson standards, MIA Fenders, upper end Deans, BC Rich, etc. This is the first Epiphone I've owned. Always wanted to grab one for rehearsals and what not so I wouldn't have to risk my more expensive axes. I'd played a friend's Epi LP standard for a while, and I didn't really like it too much. But this Slash Special II, man. It sings.

I play mostly heavy stuff. Pantera, Metallica, Alter Bridge, etc. And this thing handles all of that with ease! I've read some reviews on this guy, where people were saying it wasn't any good for metal. Straight up. They're wrong. I've also thrown this guitar through some blues, and poppier tunes. It can do it all, with a little tinkering. Now, here's what makes this a four star review. This thing can shred for days, and make you want to keep going. But when you want to switch to that neck PUP and play some cleaner tunes, you'll find yourself playing with the volume knob a little more than I prefer. The bridge pup is awesome.

Tuning. Personally, I don't know if some people have just gotten really unlucky or what, but as long as you're not bouncing your tuners off the walls, they'll hold tune just fine. I found that after about two hours of really shredding on the guitar, the only string to slip at all, was the big E. But, it was only maybe an eighth of a turn too low. The built in tuner is also awesome. It's accurate. And pretty quick as well. Probably my favorite tuner I've ever used.

The finish is beautiful. The pictures online really don't do it any justice at all. When I opened the box, I was in awe as to what a guitar this cheap could look like. It was set up beautifully straight out of the box. Nice low action, as I prefer. Very close to still being in tune. Impressive.

So, in a nutshell. If you're looking, you're obviously interested. Buy this. Best guitar I've ever played for this price range. And in contention to be one of the best I've ever played in any price range. Thank you, Epiphone. Didn't plan on it. But this LP might just make some of my more expensive guitars sit backstage for a few songs at future gigs.

      Comments about Epiphone Slash "AFD" Les Paul Guitar Outfit:

      The flame maple top, cherry sides and back with the ivory binding really set off this guitar. The zebra coil humbuckers sound excellent. I find the built in shadow e-tuner especially handy. Mine arrived in excellent condition and well set up. This guitar plays well, sounds good and is a great buy. A worthy addition to your arsenal from Epiphone.

        Comments about Epiphone Slash "AFD" Les Paul Guitar Outfit:

        Picked this gem up due to having my gear in another state. Was at a great price from what you get. Even though the pickups are stock I have no problems with them. The feel is great and the weight of it reminds me of my other Les Paul's that I own. For me perfect spacing on the frets. If I had to buy from scratch again I would mostly defiantly buy this one again.

          This guitar has slightly brighter clearer(zebra TM) more pronounced pickups than the Alnico 650T/700R found on the stock Special 2 ver..Nice presence in the tone and well balanced dynamics of your picking nuance will it deliver.

          Guitar body seemed a bit bigger than the stock special 2.

          Slight fret buzz that a small sanding would fix...

                Comments about Epiphone Slash "AFD" Les Paul Guitar Outfit:

                I couldn't believe the price for what I was getting. The AFD has that Les Paul sound and the PAFs are outstanding. Basically I wanted this not only for jamming but also to improve my playing. The improvement began as soon as I got it out of the box.
                I own a Carvin DC 400A - Anniversary model that I got as a gift in 2002. The Floyd rose nearly drove me to drink trying to keep the guitar in tune, it's heavier than sin, the action is high and the neck feels slow. This ax at the time cost about $1200.
                The Slash AFD sounded significantly better, the neck was much faster and overall it just looked like an awesome guitar and played like one.
                So for a little more than 1/10th the price of a "custom" Carvin I got an epi les paul that plays, feels and sounds AWESOME.
                This purchase has totally converted me to a die hard Epi/Gibson Les Paul believer. The prices are not to be believed, considering what you're getting especially with this particular guitar. The triple A flamed maple top is too cool for words. Love this guitar - if you like the les paul fee and sound (and who doesn't?) buy this guitar before they're all gone. Thank you Slash, Epiphone and Gibson - you rule!!
