What we say:

At A Glance

Part of the Inspired by Gibson Collection, the Epiphone Les Paul Special offers up a classic model with incredible value for money. The Les Paul model is one of the most recognisable around and the TV Yellow finish adds to the legendary look. Armed with a pair of P-90 PRO pickups it also delivers great tones that cover a lot of genres. The wraparound bridge keeps things simple and makes string changing easy. This would be a perfect first electric guitar for the budding musician or also great as a back up instrument.

Features We Love:

P-90 PRO Pickups

There is nothing quite like the tone of a P-90. It has a distinctive sound that offers bite and snarl but also provides sweet cleans when played softly. These soap bar single coil pickups are a great choice for versatile sounds that can span a number of styles ranging from blues to rock to name but a few.

TV Yellow Finish

The story goes that back in day when television was still in its infancy, white guitars wouldn't look right on screen if the studio lights bounced off them and a black guitar often didn't stand out enough. The solution was this finish, known as TV Yellow. It has now become a classic and is a look that many guitarists are still drawn to.

Graph Tech Nut

Often overlooked, the nut is a very important part of a guitar. It plays a huge role in the overall quality of the instrument due to the constant contact it has with the strings. Graph Tech are known for producing high quality guitar parts and the addition of this nut means that playability, performance and tone are all taken care of. A great bonus at this price point.

Pros:

  • An iconic design that looks amazing
  • Versatile tones due to the pair of P90s
  • Extremely good value for money

Couldnt ask for better service

bendigo d. - 22/9/2020

This guitar is well worth the money I paid and then some! It arrived well packaged, set up and ready to go. The neck is chunky but not overly so and the frets well finished off. There are a few minor imperfections in the polyurethane finish but only if you hold the guitar up to the light and hold it at the right angle. The colour is also not quite TV Yellow with a hint of mustard thrown in. Its not a shred machine and wouldn't claim to be. However, it feels and sounds great and if you play blues licks and riffs then this is perfect for you. It also sounds great acoustically and is the most resonant of all the guitars I own. In short, its a definite keeper!

Excellent wee guitar. Read a review about this back in February but have had difficulty getting a hold of this guitar. It is excellent value for money and the quality is very high for the price. I love P90s and for some time have been keen to get hold of a solid body. I was toying with the idea of a Gibson but at £1k less, it was too much of an opportunity to pass up. The only problem I find is a very tight jack socket, but assume that in time this will ease off. The neck is quite thick compared to my other guitars. I have a Gibson Les Paul Trad 2016 and comparing it to this, it is certainly thicker. However, just a matter of getting used to. Nice crunch from the bridge pick-up and with a little mixing of the amp and taking the edge of the guitar volume, you can get a great bluesy tone too. All in, I am very happy with the guitar at £350, it is worth every penny. Oh, and the reduced size headstock is a real bonus!

Great guitar needs a little set-up but nothing serious. Looks and feels like a more expensive guitar. Fun to play.
