The Epiphone Les Paul Special-I limited-edition electric guitar brings true Les Paul design, feel and tone to players on a budget. Epiphone has crafted this solidbody electric guitar with many features reminiscent of Gibson's legendary Les Paul model, including a basswood body, bolt-on 1960s Slim Taper mahogany neck and 700T/650R humbucking pickups. The result is an instrument that looks, feels and sounds like a real Les Paul without breaking the bank.

Powerful Humbuckers Deliver Legendary Les Paul Tone

The Epiphone Les Paul Special-I is equipped with a pair of open-coil humbucker pickups that provide the fat, warm tone Les Paul guitars are revered for. The 700T bridge pickup delivers a bold, aggressive sound when soloing and riffing, while the 650R neck pickup produces a smooth, singing lead tone. These pickups give you archetypal rock 'n' roll tone reminiscent of legends like Slash, Jimmy Page and Ace Frehley.

Comfortable 1960s Slim Taper Neck Profile

The Les Paul Special-I features a 1960s Slim Taper neck profile that provides comfort for marathon practice sessions and live performances. Its slim feel makes it easy to play fast licks up and down the neck. The mahogany neck construction also contributes to singing sustain.

Durable, Lightweight Basswood Body

The basswood body helps keep your Epiphone Les Paul Special-I guitar lightweight on your shoulder and back compared to a heavy, all-mahogany body. Basswood is a very common tonewood on Les Pauls, known for offering a balanced sound with tight lows and smooth, articulate highs. The single-piece body construction provides rock-solid tuning stability.

All the Essential Specs of a Real Les Paul

Beyond its looks, the Epiphone Les Paul Special-I Limited-Edition has many other specs inline with Gibson's Les Paul Standard. This includes a 24.75" scale, 12" radius rosewood fingerboard, 1-11/16" nut width, trapezoid inlays and Les Paul's trademark headstock shape. It comes equipped with a wrapped tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for easy restringing and setup adjustments.
