Slash himself helped design the Slash "AFD" Les Paul Special-II with an Appetite Amber finish, inspired by Slash's own custom Les Paul. The AAA flame Maple Veneer top has single layer Ivory binding and the back, sides, and neck are finished in beautiful dark Cherry just like Slash's original. Both the body and neck are made from Mahogany, like all classic Les Pauls. The bolt-on neck has a Rosewood fingerboard with dot acrylic inlays and the headstock features Slash's "Snakepit" logo in gold silk print along with the iconic Epiphone signature logo in silver.
Very happy with this purchase.
After I changed the wiggly bridge it come with and a couple hours of adjusting its now the best sounding and playing guitar I've ever played. Just have to spend some time adjusting electric guitars to get em right. SWEET ! Is what it produces when its adjusted right. And that little amp is awesome haven't even wanted to upgrade the amp and little I play now don't see any reason to. Replace the strings to your liking also.
awesome but had to put a lil into it. Replaced the tunners and Nut
So I bought this In-Store back in March, because I needed a jam guitar I wasn't afraid to break. I own a Fender Strat (which Ive nicknamed 'The Unbreakable Beast') and an Epiphone Les Paul Studio that I used for most of my recordings and jam sessions. I chose this guitar because of a few things it had over the normal Special II: The Maple Cap The built in tuner and the nicer Ceramic Pickups SLASH HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. This guitar sounds amazing, it has better tone than my $500 LP Studio, its so much lighter and it stays in tune so much longer. Unless Im playing a Song with lots of bends in it it rarely goes out of tune. and the built in tuner makes tuning on the fly really easy. I always hated having to strap on a headstock tuner, it looks so stupid. I now use this guitar for everything, Recording, Jamming, and Playing Live That being said if it came down to buying this or buying a LP Custom Pro or a guitar of that class, Id go for the Custom hands down. But for the Price, you WONT FIND A BETTER GUITAR. It seems the future of 21st century guitars is heavy electronic additives, Like Min-eTune. This guitar brings a little bit of Epiphone/Gibson Innovation at an affordable price. All of my "Cons" are Purely Cosmetic. Because lets be honest, After Playability, and The Sound Quality of the guitar, how beautiful she is, is very important. *There wasn't enough room to explain this in the Cons section: From a purely looks stand point, the color of this guitar while beautiful is really odd and I find that I look kinda weird playing it sometimes because what I'm wearing clashes with the color on the guitar. I study color theory in one of my classes so it might just be that but I prefer Red, Black, White, and Natural Wood colored guitars.* I recommend you buy a hard case for this guitar, the "gig bag" it comes with offers zero protection. Epiphone sells Hard Cases for about $100, totally worth it.

Very good build quality and sound in a slick looking and great feeling starter guitar. Built in tuner is a great bonus touch too!
