Comments about Epiphone Slash "AFD" Les Paul Guitar Outfit:

This guitar is amazing. If I were blindfolded and handed one of these to play on, I would assume it cost at least five times as much as it does. I've been the lead guitarist, as well as a rhythmist, for multiple bands. I've played just about every major brand I can think of. Gibson standards, MIA Fenders, upper end Deans, BC Rich, etc. This is the first Epiphone I've owned. Always wanted to grab one for rehearsals and what not so I wouldn't have to risk my more expensive axes. I'd played a friend's Epi LP standard for a while, and I didn't really like it too much. But this Slash Special II, man. It sings.

I play mostly heavy stuff. Pantera, Metallica, Alter Bridge, etc. And this thing handles all of that with ease! I've read some reviews on this guy, where people were saying it wasn't any good for metal. Straight up. They're wrong. I've also thrown this guitar through some blues, and poppier tunes. It can do it all, with a little tinkering. Now, here's what makes this a four star review. This thing can shred for days, and make you want to keep going. But when you want to switch to that neck PUP and play some cleaner tunes, you'll find yourself playing with the volume knob a little more than I prefer. The bridge pup is awesome.

Tuning. Personally, I don't know if some people have just gotten really unlucky or what, but as long as you're not bouncing your tuners off the walls, they'll hold tune just fine. I found that after about two hours of really shredding on the guitar, the only string to slip at all, was the big E. But, it was only maybe an eighth of a turn too low. The built in tuner is also awesome. It's accurate. And pretty quick as well. Probably my favorite tuner I've ever used.

The finish is beautiful. The pictures online really don't do it any justice at all. When I opened the box, I was in awe as to what a guitar this cheap could look like. It was set up beautifully straight out of the box. Nice low action, as I prefer. Very close to still being in tune. Impressive.

So, in a nutshell. If you're looking, you're obviously interested. Buy this. Best guitar I've ever played for this price range. And in contention to be one of the best I've ever played in any price range. Thank you, Epiphone. Didn't plan on it. But this LP might just make some of my more expensive guitars sit backstage for a few songs at future gigs.

    Comments about Epiphone Slash "AFD" Les Paul Guitar Outfit:

    Well for 30 more than a LP SPII you get the bag and stap, special pickups, and a mahoghany body with maple cap and binding, smooth even frets, very tight pocket for outstanding sustain, and the Slash Logo on the headstock and Bag with 5mm foam. The tuners and strap holders are just adequate, as is the strap. The electric tuner is an added bonus, but hard to see at first. The setup was decent. Definitely a real rocker. Nice flame maple looks.

        Comments about Epiphone Slash "AFD" Les Paul Guitar Outfit:

        This a just a great guitar for the price. It could easily pass for an instrument that is three or four times the price. I own a Gibson Les Paul Custom and custom Fender Strat and this Epiphone is the funnest to play and comes very close in sound quality to the Les Paul which is much heavier! I have to say I may be biased as a Slash fan but I think his influence has just made this a great guitar! Built in tuner is great and even makes it easy to tune down a half step for GnR tunes! Includes a light weight bag, strap, cable which I have not used and some nice picks. I may buy another one just to hang on the wall and look at!

        Comments about Epiphone Slash "AFD" Les Paul Guitar Outfit:

        It looks much better in person. There is more depth and it's less yellow. There is more of an amber tint. The AAA maple top is nice and the cherry back, sides and neck are finished very nicely as well. The cream binding is also attractive. The guitar itself is great.

        The pickups, tone, resonance, and the looks are what make this a 5-star guitar. The pickups do offer a tone similar to that of the AFD record by GNR. They are a bit hot but they really sing. The tuning pegs are not great but they are just fine. I will probably replace them. I did not prefer the strings that it came with. Overall the hardware could be better but the pickups are excellent and guitar resonates like a Les Paul should.

        Many Les Paul purists will turn their nose up to a bolt-on neck but bolt-ons have their own advantages. And it makes the guitar more affordable.

        It is not as versatile as my Epi Les Paul Standard but it's not as heavy either. The weight is around 7.2lbs for the Slash AFD vs. my 10lb Standard. In the guitar realm, for me that is the equivalent of a Labrador vs. a St. Bernard in terms of weight.

        This is my 3rd Epiphone guitar. This guitar is made in China. My other two were made in Indonesia (Epi Lp Standard and the Hummingbird Pro). The craftsmanship and playability out of the box was better on both guitars from Indonesia.

        The Slash AFD required a lot of attention to correct fret buzz and intonation. I still may have to take it to a tech to make it just right. I did get it playable. It's staying in tune for the most part and it is an GREAT joy to play.

          Comments about Epiphone Slash "AFD" Les Paul Guitar Outfit:

          I already own an awesome Gibson Les Paul with a set neck. Played some Epiphone guitars in a music store and always wanted one. This Les Paul Special II Slash model guitar plays like a dream. It's even got a built in guitar tuner hidden in the bridge pickup ring! This guitar is just as good quality-wise as my Gibson with the exception of the bolt on neck. You cannot beat the price and it looks great too. Very happy with this purchase. Thank you Slash!

              The flame maple top, cherry sides and back with the ivory binding really set off this guitar. The zebra coil humbuckers sound excellent. I find the built in shadow e-tuner especially handy. Mine arrived in excellent condition and well set up. This guitar plays well, sounds good and is a great buy. A worthy addition to your arsenal from Epiphone.

              This guitar has slightly brighter clearer(zebra TM) more pronounced pickups than the Alnico 650T/700R found on the stock Special 2 ver..Nice presence in the tone and well balanced dynamics of your picking nuance will it deliver.

              Guitar body seemed a bit bigger than the stock special 2.

              Slight fret buzz that a small sanding would fix...

                        Comments about Epiphone Slash "AFD" Les Paul Guitar Outfit:

                        The first time I seen one of these, I kind of passed it off as a cheap gimmicky beginner guitar. Man was I wrong. I was definitely lured by the sweet flamed maple top. What entry level guitar has that? I own a Les Paul 60's Classic and it's great but weighs a ton and I'm afraid I'll damage it, thereby ruining it's value. This bolt on neck cheepy rivals the tone and playability of the classic without breaking the bank. The pickups sound great with just the right amount of crunch and the tuner built in to the pickup ring is another feature you won't find anywhere else. The quality of the hardware is good, although a nicer set of tuners would be nice. They work fine and mine stays in tune. I own a half dozen guitars and this one's my favorite by far. The action is set a little high but nothing you can't work around or adjust to suit. The finish of the guitar is flawless. As player for the last 40 years, believe me when I tell you, you've got to try one of these. Your in for a pleasant surprise.

                          Ok so I originally had the slash epiphone les Paul custom with the zebra pick ups years ago and yes wish I had never sold it but that's life. Anyway when I saw this I thought it would be cool to have another one of his signature guitars that didn't cost quite as much. Was not expecting to much out of this guitar but when I got it I was presently surprised at how nice and we'll made this guitar was as well as how nice it sounded and played. I own several more expensive guitars some ESP's and schecter's but I must say this guitar can hold its own with them. It's sound great plays great and looks great. I did take it to my guitar tech guy and had him do a set up and lower the action on it and it plays like a dream. I not only use it for practice but I gig with it as well it stays in tune and is alot lighter then other les pauls for this price you can't go wrong! It a great back up to your main axe or a great main axe!

                          Absolutely awesome guitar. Beautiful finish on the front and back. Great pickups, good neck feel. The tuner is nice and accurate. One of the ends on the cable it came with is a loose fit. I'm gonna get a different cable soon. And one of the zippers on the gig bag came off when I tried putting it away. Now I don't want to mess with it. Other than that. Awesome guitar at a great price.
