Electric Guitar? The super-low price for starters and that’s not all. It gives
you all the essential elements of a Les Paul. Made with a mahogany body, bolt-
on mahogany neck, smooth 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, this baby is every bit
as handsome as its uptown cousins. Features 700T/650R open-coil humbucking
pickups that deliver long, singing sustain and true Les Paul tones. The
LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece add more sustain and make
string changing easier. Limited lifetime warranty. From the Manufacturer

Epiphone Epiphone is one of American’s oldest and most revered instrument
makers and since 1873, Epiphone has made instruments for every style of
popular music. The name evokes both history and the spirit of invention.
Epiphone has been an audible presence in every great musical era from the
mandolin craze of the early 1900s to jazz age guitars of the 1920s. From
swing-era archtops through post-war pop, jazz, R&B;, and early rock n’ roll.
From the “British Invasion” to heavy metal, punk, grunge, and thrash. And now,
in the 21st century, new Epiphone technical breakthroughs such as the
ProBucker pickup, series parallel switching, built-in KillSwitch pots, the
Shadow NanoFlex and NanoMag pickup systems, and premier acoustic/electric
guitars with the eSonic preamp have brought the historic name to a new
generation. Les Paul Special II at a Glance Great-sounding workhorse of a
