If you're ready to become a guitar hero -- or need a great gift for someone who is -- the Epiphone Les Paul Special II Players Pack is perfect! This package has got everything you need to start playing electric, right out of the box: a Les Paul electric guitar, an amplifier, picks, a pitchpipe, a cable, a strap, a carrying bag, and even an instructional DVD.

Check out the Epiphone Les Paul Special II in this demonstration:


Your First Les Paul!

The Epiphone Les Paul Special II guitar has a laminated alder/maple body and a bolt-on mahogany neck. The scale length on the neck is 24.75 inches, which makes it exactly the same size as the majority of all electric guitars, and thus a perfect learning instrument! The fingerboard is rosewood and has position marker inlays on 9 frets.

Just like its big brother Les Pauls, the Special II has two humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge positions. Master Volume and Tone Controls are located in the familiar spot just under the nickel StopBar tailpiece. The tuning pegs up top are nickel as well.

10-Watt Practice Amp Included

When you're ready to plug this baby in, you'll use the supplied cable to connect with the Epiphone Studio 10 amplifier. This is a great little practice amp, but don't worry -- it won't have the neighbors calling the police unless you push it all the way up. A 3-band EQ lets you begin experimenting with sound control on an electric amplifier. A headphone jack is there for late-night practicers!

Guitar Features:


- 650R humbucker Neck Pickup
- 700T humbucker Bridge Pickup
- Rosewood Fretboard with dot inlays
- Laminated Alder/maple Body
- Mahogany Bolt-on Neck With 24.75-inch Scale
- Rosewood Fretboard With Dot Inlays
- 650R Humbucker Neck Pickup
- 700T Humbucker Bridge Pickup

- Nickel Hardware

Extras Included:

- Guitar Cable

- Gig Bag

Not everyone can say they started out with a Les Paul. Here's your chance! This all-inclusive pack is ready to rock, right out of the box. If you're curious about learning how to play electric -- or have a younger person on hand who wants to play -- this package is an excellent way to get started off on the right foot.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (867 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great LP axe for a low price, just don't expect too much from the extras."
Sound: The LP Special is a GREAT sounding guitar for the price, but "caveat emptor"...the amp that comes with the Player Pack is extremely low on the quality scale. It's fine for practice and learning, but leave it at home and buy a decent rig if you're going out to jam with anybody. Feature: Got some picks, decent tuner and an OK strap, but the gig bag is awful. Quality: The guitar is very comparable to its (sure, better...but expensive!) Gibson cousins. Great axe for a beginner, and I'd even take it on stage with no worries or shame. Value: The guitar is well worth the cost...the accessories and amp, well... Manufacturer Support: Gibson...the best! The Wow Factor: Great, but still ain't a GIBSON Les Paul.

"buyer beware.. buy separately"
Overall: Bought the layer pack at a different vendor. The amp was bad and contacted gibson for warranty, you have to ship the wholepack back for service, they cannot service only the amp or the guitar if there is a problem. Since its part of a pack and they might have to swap it, you better have everything that came with it. If you buy ever ything separate, you might spend around the $260 range, i know i did, but i was able to get a better amp than the one it brings. As far ad the guitar, and the humbuckers, they are top notch, worth more than you pay, i got the black one, beautiful, just research the guitar alone all over the web and you will see. The sound can be upgraded later but not necessary. I did notice the individual guitar i purchased had an assembled and inspected sticker in the US, VS. The pack said assembled in china and inspected in the US. Both made in china but the assembly was different. For the sound and money you spend, the best deal out there. Compare it to the next les paul epi out there and you will see you are getting a 400 to 500 dollar guitar for under 150 if you shop. Gibson even did a follow phone call with me after i returned the pack and purchased it separately. Now, i have 3 guitars and this is my second favorite after my acoustic epiphone. Careful, look for string buzz when buying quickly while you can return it, more prevalent on the 5th and 6th string. No matter what people say, no guitar out of the shop should have any, this one did not, the second one had to return it twice until they found one that was perfect. Speak to the sales rep and have them test for this before they ship it or be very patient in the back and forth, this is just a top, you might not encounter this, and people out there are comfortable with doing their own adjustments on their guitars, but this can be an indication of neck problems or other hidden issues, you or your kid does not want to be discouraged with a nice purchase. Again just a tip, the 1000 dollar guitar had buzz and this one was perfect so it does not matter what the price is.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
