What are you looking for from this guitar? I ask because this is not the most versatile guitar in the world. (The Squier '51 is in the same price range and offers way more tonal variety.) BUT--within its restricted range, this Les Paul offers the purest, most beautiful tone I've heard in a budget axe. For rich, bluesy jazz tones played clean or raunchy, growling garage rock when played with some distortion, this thing is an absolute monster. Played through my Peavey 258 EFX Transtube or my Drive CD300, the results are the same--Pure Tone, Baby!!! By the way, the black with the gold hardware is absolutely beautiful. Everyone who has seen it comments on its sexiness. This is a great guitar for the money. (PS--Like every guitar on the market, change the strings immediately.)

I picked up and played this guitar at Guitar Center one day, and I was dissapointed, although for the price, can you complain?I ran it through a large Marshall amp and was amazed at the good, clean sound I got out of it. However, when I turned on the overdrive, (the moment I was waiting for) I was honestly surprised at how bad it sounded.I figure this guitar could be a LOT better with some better pickups. One last thing I was uncomfortable with was the design. Even though it is a standard Les Paul design, I felt it didn't "fit" me when I sat down with it, as most of the body was to my right, with little weight on the left to even it out.Overall, I would say it's an alright guitar, phenomenal for clean and blues. Probably worth it for the price.

Very low quality

By Rocker-cRDrs

from TN

After one week the toggle switch started makeing a static noise and the sound would fade in and out and I would have to flip it up and down to get the pickups to work. Also the tuners on this are junk, after about a minute of playing it will go out of tune and if you bend a string it will INSTANLY go out of tune and you have to retune it.

don't judge an axe by its finish

By keifer

from Memphis, TN

I bought this guitar a little over a year ago with some birthday money cause i wanted something new, but i didn't expect it to be this good for the price. i'll admit that i'm not crazy about its appearance, (flattop, no pickgaurd) but this guitar plays almost as well as my other Gibsons. the guitar is great for the price, but i would save up and buy something else. the guitar keeps good tune, and plays awesome, but the headstock & neck are heavier than the body, so it's front heavy and will fall if you let go. just change the strings when you get it, and you're good to go.

You Get What You Pay For

By Jonny

from Douglasville, GA

I only bought this guitar because it was cheap and I wanted a Les Paul, but honestly it's not that great. With no effects pedals it sounds like any old guitar. The inlay dots are really pathetic, and the "gold" plate has started to tarnish and turn chrome, it's actual color. But with my Digitech RP80 modeling pedal I manage to get some decent sound out of it. All and all it's a good beginners guitar and thats about it, I'm planning on updating to a Dean XV pretty soon, I hear that they are cheap but really good.

By DomF.

from Rock Hill, SC

im 15 and ive been playing for 3 years. after the squire tele, anything seems better. but this thing was a godsend. great sound, slim neck and it fits me so well. i play in drop c, i tuned it, it stayed tuned. This guitar Is the Biggest Bang for your Buck

Awesome guitar.

By Redneckjr

from Scottsboro, AL

This is the perfect guitar for me... it has a great pick-up and its slightly heavy weight is very easy to get used to. I have owned a special 2 for about 6 months now and ive never had any problems with it. I think it would be a perfect guitar for any type of guitarist. The classic les paul body and style gives it the sleek look also.

do not buy this

By dissapointment101

from Bend, OR

I have had this guitar for about a month I played it once and never played it again. I have a a fender starcaster and this thing plays like a five doller guitar compared to it. if your playing chords on this thing it will hurt your ears. I hate this guitar it is a waste. I suggest you save your money a little longer and buy a nicer one. This guitar disapointed me.

A FINE GUITAR

By Daniel-_KNtA

from ALBION, NJ

See all my reviews

I just started playing the guitar, and I must tell you that the sound of this guitar surpasses the sound of my Stratocaster clone. The main body of the LP special II guitar is solid maple. The only difference between this limited edition LP special II and the regular LP special II is the gold hardware on this limited edition model. This electric guitar is a bargain !!

You get what you expect

By NoFret

from Hollywood CA

This is an inexpensive guitar and it sounds and plays that way. Anybody that compares it to any American Fender or Gibson is off key! Intonation is fair, the neck quality is fair. It can be set up with the action lowered but watch out... you will get fret buzz if you try to get the action close to acceptable.Im not a big fan of cheap guitars unless your budget and talent dictate this. For the price this guitar is a fair deal, nothing more.

Overall good guitar.

By lespaullover-Njm9H

from WV

Ok, im not going to say its a great guitar, because it isnt. I bought this guitar to mess around with, and have as a backup. I use a Kustom Dart 10 with this thing, and I think it sounds good. I usually have it tuned Drop D and it, to me, sounds very good for a cheap guitar.

Epiphone Limted Edition LP Special II Deluxe

By rockinpaul

from West Point, NY

The Epiphone Limted Edition LP Special II Deluxe Electric Guitar is a great Guitar. I got it and started playing it as soon as it was tuned up and it sounded great. It is a great value for the price and if you always wanted a Les Paul, but didn't want to spend too much, this is a great deal for you.

I can't think of a better guitar for the money really, it should have good resale value compared to some no-names. this has to be the best Special II series I've seen yet.

A great sounding guitar

By Rattlinrogue

from Hattiesburg,MS

I've been playing on and off for 40 years and have played many different guitars.I'd rate this guitar way up there.It has much better tone than my Fender Strat.For the money,it would be tough to beat buying the Epi Special II Deluxe Les Paul.

Read Before You Buy

By DuaneLives71

from Savannah, GA

See all my reviews

This is a great guitar, For its price. The guitar is solid and has killer looks. The rosewood neck, which I dislike on most guitars, is fast and amazingly smooth. my only hangups with this axe is the inability to keep it in tune and its lacking in tonal variety. Replace the tuners with gold grovers immedietly, and throw some heavy gauge strings on it, and you got a great looking/sounding/playing guitar.

Sounds good for its price

By Dude-i32Y9

from Yorktown

I've had this for a little while, the pick-ups sound pretty good. I love the body of this guitar the sound is moderately good. But the only bad thing that I hate a lot is the weight, other than that its a great guitar for someone who just wants to mess around with something.

Great Buy for the money

By Gibson fan-48jXm

from Nashville, TN

This Epiphone Limited Edition LP Special is a great buy for the money. I own a Gibson Les Paul but hesitate to take it on the road or to funky bars. This guitar is a good work horse and sounds every bit as good as my Gibson. The action needed a little adjustment but other than that it is well worth the price to get that "Gibson" sound for a small amount of money.
