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.

The Outfit

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.

Posted on 08/06/2017 by Easy to setup, the guitar itself produces great tones, and is easily the best guitar in a starter pack.
Posted on 25/12/2015 by First thoughts on this pack is that its a really special guitar for a beginner. Really beautiful looks and a great sound. Couple of items seem to be missing from the pack (plectrums and info re e-media lessons) but I'm sure the staff at Dawsons will rectify this - it's Christmas Day so yet to contact them on the missing items. Bought this as a present for my partner who wants to learn. Everything you need to get started as soon as its out of the box. Really cool feature is the onboard Shadow tuner. Action is very low but just what she needs to avoid too much stress on her fingertips as she is learning. Adjustments can be made to raise the action (basically how hard you need to press the string to the fretboard) when she is ready.

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!
Posted on 05/03/2015 by First off, I'd like to thank the staff at Dawsons Huddersfield who were very welcoming and were very informative and were more than happy to let me have a little strum, cheers gents! The guitar itself is brilliant sound's great clean as well as when you get down and dirty with it . It is very light and feels very comfortable on the neck, I am very impressed.
Posted on 16/01/2015 by First of all the staff in Dawsons @ Liverpool were very helpful and honest in helping me with my guitar purchase, highly recommend. On to the guitar, it feels smaller than my older generic/very cheap guitar and lighter so highly suitable for beginners like me! It looks awesome, and the shadow tuner built in is just amazing, the case feels lightly padded and a lot better than I imagined. The guitar sounds great and it feels great, I just love it. Highly recommend it for beginners and intermediate players on a budget.
