The Epiphone Special-II GT Electric Guitar has been a staple of guitarists worldwide seeking Les Paul sound and styling for nearly 20 years. Now, Epiphone has reimagined this classic with upgraded features for modern rock and blues players. The Special-II GT delivers full, resonant tone from its mahogany body and neck, with articulate midrange and tight low end. The 650R and 700T humbucker pickups provide cutting lead tones and thick rhythm sounds with clarity and punch.

Legendary tonewoods shape your sound

The Special-II GT's mahogany back, sides and neck provide resonant, balanced tone with clear articulation. Its slim-profile neck offers fast, comfortable playability, while a rosewood fretboard enhances midrange warmth and depth. Together, these tonewoods shape well-rounded tone equally suited to rock, blues and classic rock styles.

High-output humbuckers drive your tone

The Special-II GT is equipped with Epiphone's 650R neck humbucker and 700T bridge humbucker, which provide articulate, high-output tone for solos, rhythm playing and more. The 650R neck pickup offers warm, rounded tone, while the 700T bridge pickup provides tighter low end and cutting treble for solos. Use them individually or combine for a range of vintage-voiced sounds.

Timeless looks, reimagined

The Special-II GT's worn, black finish gives this Les Paul a vintage vibe, with authentic-looking wear and aging. Chrome hardware, including Epiphone's classic trapeze tailpiece, complements the worn finish. A black pickguard provides an elegantly understated contrast. With looks and tone that evoke the golden age of rock, the Special-II GT lets you craft classic sounds at an unbeatable value.

All the essentials, affordable as ever

Like all Epiphone guitars, the Special-II GT includes premium components like CTS potentiometers, Switchcraft toggle switch and jack, and Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty. At a price any guitarist can afford, the Special-II GT delivers professional-grade tone and performance for players of all levels. Now available at Guitar Center, get your Special-II GT today.
