Get an Epiphone AFD Les Paul Special II and more! Want to shred like Slash from your very first note?

Epiphone Slash Appetite for Destruction Performance Pack

Welcome to the jungle -- and your guitar career!

Slash's guitar riffs and solos with the likes of Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver are legendary -- they make goosebumps rise, jaws drop, and have inspired decades of young players to pick up a guitar and learn the craft. The key tool Slash uses to craft such monster licks is his trusty Les Paul. Its gorgeous flamed maple top and zebra humbuckers have been seen on huge stages worldwide, in music videos, and on posters adorning the walls of legions of fans.

Epiphone has created the Slash Appetite for Destruction Performance Pack with those Slash devotees in mind. Loaded like a freight train, it includes a gorgeous AFD Les Paul Special-II guitar, a Snakepit-15 amplifier, and all the accessories you'll need to rock right away, like a strap, cable, custom Slash picks, and eMedia online guitar lessons.

Les Paul "AFD" Special-II Guitar

Sure to elicit oohs, ahhs, and envious glares from your friends, the AFD Les Paul Special-II included in this Performance Pack is a beauty. Its stunning AAA flamed maple top is anything but "entry-level." A cherry mahogany body provides gorgeous contrast to its top, while ivory body binding caps off the look. You'll be inspired to play as soon as you get a feel of the smooth mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard.

But this Les Paul is much more than a pretty axe -- it's also loaded with features typically reserved for much costlier guitars. Two Epiphone Ceramic Plus Zebra Coil humbuckers provide full-bodied bite that really sings through an overdriven amp. Discreetly placed on the bridge pickup mounting ring, you'll find an onboard Shadow E-Tuner. Its bright LED indicators let you check your tune even on the darkest stages. The time-proven combination of a Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece keep you in tune longer and add sustain.

Slash Snakepit-15 Amplifier

When it's time to rock a crowd, this Performance Pack has your back with the included Slash Snakepit-15 amplifier. Sporting a classic look with a black shell and basket weave grill, this amp also goes way beyond what most beginners would expect to play through. Its 15 watts of power are pumped through an 8" Electar Classic 25 speaker made to handle raunchy tones.

Whether you want to dial in Slash's signature tone or forge your own new sounds, you can do so with the amp's simple but extensive controls. Two channels (clean and overdrive) with two independent master volumes, plus master bass, middle, and treble controls, and a gain knob for the overdrive channel give the Snakepit-15 a massive tonal library. Perfect for practicing, the front panel auxiliary input lets you jam to your favorite tracks right through the amp, while the headphones jack ensures your late-night renditions of "Paradise City" won't wake the entire house.

An Arsenal of Awesome Accessories

True to its name as a Performance Pack, this box is stacked with all the gear you'll need to hone your skills, then hit the road and rock. And like this pack's incredible amp and guitar, these accessories have a cool look all their own.

For starters, the gig bag included in the pack carries your new Les Paul in style. Its big emblazoned Epiphone logo at the headstock and Slash "Snakepit" logo near the base hint at how cool of an axe you're carrying inside. A set of three Dunlop Tortex picks provide excellent grip and also proudly display the "Snakebite" graphic. To complete the ensemble, the pack includes an Epiphone guitar cable for playing through your amp and an Epiphone strap so you can perfect your stage moves.

Finally, to help you develop the necessary chops, the Performance Pack includes free eMedia online guitar lessons. Designed to give comprehensive instruction to beginners, you'll get plenty of great feedback as you advance.
