The Les Paul guitar is one of the most recognisable and adored models on the market, and has been for decades since its inception. Epiphone have been designing their own Les Paul guitars since the late 1980s, and now bring you the new Les Paul Special VE. This new release is a Vintage Edition electric guitar which maintains the unmistakeable Les Paul body shape and lightweight playing feel. Epiphone aim to bring you all the best qualities of a Les Paul at a fraction of the usual price.


The entire body of the Epiphone Les Paul Special VE is constructed from poplar, which is a sturdy hardwood that provides a well-balanced range of tones. The body feels lightweight when you pick it up, allowing you to play more comfortably for longer with a lesser chance of suffering fatigue. The body is given a Vintage Worn finish with no binding, for a well-refined, classic visual aesthetic.


The Les Paul Special VE has a smooth, reliable mahogany neck which is firmly fitted to the body via the bolt-on joint. The neck is shaped to the 1960s SlimTaper D profile which provides a smooth, fast playing feel, ideal for soloing. The neck is paired with a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard which is decked out with 22 medium jumbo frets, some of which feature pearloid dot inlays to guide you.


The superb voice of the Les Paul Special VE is generated by a pair of hot open-coil humbuckers; a warm 650R Humbucker at the neck position and a hotter 700T Humbucker at the bridge position. The pairing of these fantastic open-coil pickups with their Ceramic-8 magnets ensure a full-bodied delivery of that indisputable Les Paul sound.

Controls for Master Volume and Tone as well as a three-way pickup selector enable you to shape your sound. The controls come in the form of black speed knobs pots and as you might expect, these have the standard 500K potentiometers.


The Vintage Edition Les Paul Special comes with all-metal hardware, from the Tune-o-Matic bridge to the Epiphone Trapeze tailpiece, providing strong support for the strings.

The headstock has the recognisable Epiphone "Clipped Ear" design, engraved with the words "Les Paul Special" in gold and the Epiphone logo also in silver. Premium covered tuners are fitted to the headstock and are set to a reliable 14:1 gear ratio for precise tuning.

The Les Paul Special Vintage Edition by Epiphone is the quintessential Les Paul at an incredibly low price, making it the ideal purchase for any guitarist at any level.

Posted on 06/12/2019 by Arrived well packed. For the price it looks great and of course has the classic Les Paul looks. A bit of fret buzz but I adjusted the bridge which helped. Very nice.
Posted on 29/08/2017 by The package arrived in very good time, and was packed very neatly in its box. The guitar itself has a nice solid build, but not painfully heavy. Very simplistic and clean. With plenty of access to the uppermost frets, there's no struggle to play most styles. My particular model almost has a kind of quilted sheen to it in one spot. Quirky feature.
Posted on 19/01/2017 by Really happy with the purchase! I would rate closest to 4.7 star if possible. I was a bit worried about having it shipped to my door via post, but the guitar arrived superbly wrapped and secure with no damage what so ever and was at my door in 2 days! ** One Haaappy customer!*

All in all Great craftsmanship and quality for the price. Only troubles I seem to have is a little fret buzz .. A common problem it seems - A little tweaking should sort this out - Still, I am happy with this purchase none the less

Thanks for my first guitar !
