Epiphone Slash AFD Les Paul Special-II Electric Guitar
The Epiphone Slash AFD Les Paul Special-II looks amazing, and at this price, with all the extras you’re getting, is a steal. In this case the classic Les Paul body shape is given a beautiful, AAA flame maple top, combined with a cherry mahogany body, providing the classic tone you would expect. Furthermore this guitar has been equipped with a pair of the new Ceramic Plus humbuckers, for a hotter, more aggressive tone that’s more fitting of a guitar named after Guns N' Roses debut album, and endorsed by Slash.
Also hidden one of the pickup rings is an addition that will be much-coveted, even by professionals, the Shadow pickup ring E-Tuner. Making tuning easy and discreet, just press the on button, pluck a string, and the E-Tuner will tell you what your tuning is, via a series of LEDs.
Making sure your Epiphone Slash AFD Les Paul Special-II is protected when you take it out with you or just when it’s not being played, the Outfit comes complete with a Custom gigbag, which, along with the Epiphone logo, features Slash’s Snakepit logo. For playing you have a set of Slash signature Dunlop Tortex plectrums, a guitar strap, and a guitar cable.
Helping you on your way (if you are a beginner) is access to eMedia online lessons. These introductory guitar lessons give you feedback on melodies, along with a host of tools to help you along the way, such as Note Tracker and Finger Tracker, which shows what you’re playing onscreen as notation and on an animated fingerboard. Songs and exercises can also be played as audio or MIDI tracks, allowing you slow them down or speed them up, so you can really perfect your playing. There is also the option to upgrade the lessons.

I'm not an expert guitarist by any means but I think this is one of the best starter packs I could have bought as a gift and I'm happy I purchased this as a gift. My partner is really pleased with it as well. May not meet expectations of more demanding advanced players but this is a whole lot of guitar for the money. Looks and sounds great and would definitely recommend to others!
