With the Les Paul Special VE, Epiphone decided to take on a simpler-yet-grittier approach to the iconic Les Paul. Vintage Worn finishes give this guitar a look that means business and is ready to deliver. The grittiness comes from not only the looks, but the tones as well, thanks to Epiphone's Open Coil Humbuckers. With All-metal hardware rounding out the looks, you'll be getting a lot of bang for your buck with the Les Paul Special VE.

Vintage Worn Finishes
The Les Paul Special VE comes in six vintage worn finishes: Vintage Sunburst, Ebony, Cherry, Walnut, and Heritage Cherry Sunburst. Each finish provides an aged look with character, while also being more comfortable than a gloss-finished guitar due to their tendency to get sticky when you sweat. When you take this guitar with you on the road and it starts to show some wear, it'll blend in perfectly with the worn-in finish. The poplar body wood is lightweight but also provides a meaty tone, so you'll have the benefit of being able to play longer while having a guitar that sounds full. The body is accompanied by a slim 24.75" scale Okoume bolt-on neck, with 22 medium jumbo frets and traditional pearloid dot inlays.

Epiphone's Open Coil Humbuckers
The open coil humbuckers on the Les Paul Special VE are major factors in creating the vintage look and sound of the guitar. The 650R pickup in the neck position provides a nice warmth and crispiness – perfect for smooth lead playing and rounded out sounds. When you want to get a bit heavier and crunchier, the 700T pickup in the bridge will deliver hotter sounds with loads of sustain. Since both pickups are open coil instead of being covered, you’ll have an increased level of clarity and brightness – perfect for cutting through and being heard amongst a mix of other instruments.

All-Metal Hardware
Epiphone spared no expenses with nickel hardware on the Les Paul Special VE. Accurate tuning that firmly holds its place comes from Epiphone's Premium Covered tuners with a 14:1 ratio. The Locktone Tune-O-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece look the part as well and will be reliable for years to come.

Nice guitar for not too much money


As a beginner guitar player this is my first electric guitar. I read a lot of positive reviews. I even consulted a friend about it and he has one of those as well.



Best first electric guitar you could buy!


I'm loving this guitar. I'm just getting started with the guitar. I vowed to really learn this instrument during my lockdown during the Covid19 pandemic. It's easy to play and it sounds awesome pumping out of my very inexpensive little amp. The vintage visual quality makes me actually look forward to beating it up a little along the way. It looks so authentically vintage I feel like the natural aging process will only compliment it. For such an inexpensive guitar I'm very impressed with the sound quality.



Les Paul VE


I'm new to guitar but this has a nice feel in the hands . Neck is easy to use , overall very solid feel , well made and set up . Nice guitar for the money !!





Fast ship. as described. Guitar needs a setup. Should be perfect after this is done.



You gotta get one!


Being a beginner I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a guitar. But I still wanted a quality instrument . I think I got one with this guitar. Had researched other brands and the Epiphone LPSVE was the best in my opinion. Only thing I might change on it are the tuning machines. They work and all that , but I think they could be a bit smoother when tuning. Other than that I am very satisfied. Shipping from Sam Ash was very fast and it arrived in great shape.



Would buy again


Fast free shipping..after minor set up for string height,tuned.Plugged in my marshal 30 watt amp...awesome guitar for the price!

A Fun Guitar to Play!


I have many Guitars, But I must say, This is the most fun to play! It fits close to my body and for some reason seems effortless to play! It has great Tone and can really Boogie with Blues, Soul, Country and Rock! Pick up one of these Les Paul Special VE's and casually make music in your room! Have some fun! Be careful though! Cause your other High End Guitars will be Jealous!
