Real Les Paul tone and feel for beginners or pros.

This is a limited edition version of Epiphone's number one selling model available with a choice of "worn" finishes. The Epiphone Ltd Ed Special-I is a great way for beginners to get started on guitar with real Les Paul tone and feel. But seasoned pros love the Special-I also because it's a great-sounding, workhorse guitar that lets them leave their more expensive axes at home.

The authentic LP power starts with an basswood, trademarked Les Paul body with a bolted-on "1960's" SlimTaper™ mahogany neck featuring a 21-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. The Special-I is voiced by a pair of hot open-coil Epiphone 700T and 650R humbucker pickups, giving it massive, unmistakable Les Paul tone. Like all of Epiphone's electric guitars, it 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. This value-champ also now features nickel hardware including an intonated, one-piece wraparound bridge-stopbar.

      Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Special-I Electric Guitar:

      I agree with most of the reviews already posted. This is a great little guitar for the money!

      It just FEELS good to play. The neck has a realy nice feel to it. The pick ups aren't the best, but better than some other entry level guitars. The tuners aren't great, as you'll need to re-tune every time you pick it up. The lack of adjustable saddles makes it nearly impossible to get the intonation right for every string, but you can come close. I like the satin finish, but others may not.

      All and all don't even attempt to compare this to a $300+ guitar. It won't stack up.

      But if you are looking for a beginner guitar, or just a cheap guitar you can pound on and not care this would be a great option.

      For someone new to playing guitar, consider this:

      You'll need to tune it every time you pick it up. But as a beginner, you need to learn how to tune the guitar.

      The pick ups aren't amazing. As a beginner you won't know the difference.

      You won't be able to set the intonation properly. As a beginner, you don't know what intonation is and won't be playing on the upper register.

      Basswood is not mahogany, let alone mahogany with a maple cap. The tone is not as good, nor is the sustain. But as a beginner, could you tell?

      The important thing is that as a beginner, this guitar feels good and will encourage you to play. There is a little fret buzz, but it doesn't come through the amp, so it's not really noticable.

      The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that the body is thinner than a regular Les Paul, so the guitar doesn't really fit properly in the fitted case. Two folded old T-Shirts should "shim" it up just fine!

      For the price, for someone just learning guitar, or just a kick around guitar, I reccomend you consider this as an option.

      Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Special-I Electric Guitar:

      i got this just to do some upgrading and because I've always dug the 'TV yellow' color on gtrs. After changing the tuners to Grovers and adding a Duncan Invader, it became what I wanted it for - something fun to bang around on. Is it a professional piece? No! Does it feel good to just pick it up, crank an amp, and peel off some some thick, single-note, palm-muted runs? Absolutely! There you go, for what it's worth.
