The Epiphone Les Paul Performance Pack: About the Les Paul Special II
The Epiphone Les Paul Performance Pack is built around the Epiphone Les Paul Special II - a fine guitar, and a great way to introduce beginners to the historical importance of the Les Paul tone. Though many music fans most closely associate the Les Paul with the players that made it so famous - arguably, the most popular are Jimmy Page and Slash - the Gibson Les Paul has been used in a vast span of musical endeavors, ranging from metal and punk to blues and jazz. The key ingredient to its sound has always been its dual humbucking pickups, which offer a great full-bodied tone. Of course, these guitars are also prohibitively expensive for beginners - which makes the Epiphone Les Paul Special II a great choice. Epiphone is a sub-brand of Gibson which offers affordably built versions of many of the world's most popular guitars. Their Special II model includes many of the features that define the Les Paul - the familiar body shape, a pair of humbuckers, a mahogany neck - and is a great playing guitar for beginners.
The Epiphone Les Paul Performance Pack: Rounding Out the Package
If all that was included with the Epiphone Les Paul Performance Pack was the guitar, it wouldn't be much use to anybody beginning to play guitar - what about the amp, the cables, the accessories? Thankfully, Epiphone came through here, including a solid 15-watt Studio 15R practice amp and everything else necessary to play. The Performance Pack's Studio 15R offers overdrive and reverb, to allow players to begin experimenting with their tone. It's also got a headphone jack for silent practice when necessary.
The Epiphone Les Paul Performance Pack also has your accessory bases covered, with:
-A cable to connect your guitar to the amp
-A strap so you can play standing up
-A few picks, to make playing easier
-A quartz tuner, to keep your guitar in tune and sounding good
-A gig bag to make transporting your guitar simple
-An instructional DVD, so you can learn how to use your guitar's features
With everything necessary to commence rocking, the Epiphone Les Paul Performance Pack is a fantastic choice for all types of beginning guitarists.
