OVERVIEW

A new classic with innovative electronics, high-output humbuckers, and a slim-tapered neck.

To give this new Special-II GT Electric Guitar even more acceleration, Epiphone has packed it with several new features. A patent-applied-for combination Tone pot and Kill Switch lurks in what would appear to be an ordinary Master Tone control: Push or "tap" it down and it mutes the Special II GT's output signal, allowing you to create cool and unusual effects (think Buckethead!) that are particularly impressive when combined with distortion. Epiphone has equipped the new GT with a vintage-style vibrato unit that allows you to bend strings and chords with ease. Typically not found on a Les Paul-style guitar, this component, combined with the kill-switch, lets you create amazing new effects — and all at a price that won't break your budget.

The Whole GT Package
Other features include a tapered heel for more comfortable access in the upper frets, premium enclosed 14:1 ratio tuners, and, of course, Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty with 24/7/365 Customer Service. Top it all off with a rosewood fingerboard upgraded with pearloid parallelogram inlays and 22 medium-jumbo frets — all an easy reach thanks to this GT's single-cutaway design and a contoured, recessed bolt neck — and you've got a real speed machine, one that's all the more comfortable when you wrap your hand around that SlimTaper neck profile. Bundle it all up in a thin, "worn" black finish that feels vintage, all with a price tag that any guitarist can afford, and you've got a NEW Epiphone classic made just for you!

Body and Finish
Like many classic Epiphone and Gibson tone machines, the Special II GT is made from a solid slab of resonant mahogany. It is completed with a "worn" black finish to give it an aged look and feel, and to allow its full tone to ring true.

Neck, Fingerboard and Headstock
The Special II GT carries a bolt-on maple neck with a 1960s-era SlimTaper profile, tilted Epiphone headstock, and rich brown rosewood fingerboard, all important components in its feel and tone. It is built to the traditional 24.75" scale length.

Pickups and Electronics
The Special II GT carries a pair of high-output U.S.A.-designed humbucking pickups and a no-nonsense control array of three-way switch and Master Volume and Tone controls, which nevertheless hides a secret weapon in a push-button "Kill Switch" built into the latter.

Hardware
The Special II GT is equipped with a hotrodded hardware set, including a six-screw vintage-style vibrato bridge and high-quality, die-cast tuners, all black-plated for a rock-ready look.
