Epiphone's number one selling model LP Special II is a great way for beginners to get started on guitar while getting the feel and tone of a Les Paul. Seasoned pros also love the Special II because it's a great-sounding workhorse of a guitar that allows them to leave their more expensive axes at home. The Les Paul II's authentic LP power starts with an all-mahogany, trademarked Les Paul body with a bolt-on "1960's" SlimTaper™ and Mahogany with dot inlays.
The Special II is voiced by a pair of hot open-coil Epiphone 700T and 650R humbucker pickups for that massive unmistakable Les Paul tone. Like all of Epiphone's electric guitars, the Special II comes standard-equipped with 500K potentiometers for the Master Volume and Master Tone controls, plus Epiphone's heavy-duty 3-way pickup selector toggle switch and exclusive non-rotating heavy-duty output jack.
The Les Paul Special II also features Nickel hardware including the Epiphone Tune-o-matic bridge and StopBar tailpiece for amazing sustain and even more mind-blowing value. It comes in your choice of Ebony, Heritage Cherry Sunburst, and Vintage Sunburst color finishes and also in a special Wine Red version with black hardware. There is even a left-handed version in Heritage Cherry Sunburst or Vintage Sunburst finishes for southpaws.
