Don’t confuse this with the “Special II”, easily identifiable with it’s flat top – this is a Les Paul 100, and features an arched top of maple over mahogany body, dual volume and tone controls, matching cream pickguard/pickup rings, pearloid Epi headstock logo, and sells new for $150 more. If you want the classic Gibson Les Paul feel and sound, but find the Epiphone Les Paul Standard a little higher than your budget allows, this one’s for you. With dual open-coil humbuckers, a rosewood fretboard with a bolt-on mahogany neck and great body wood give this model the powerful, sustaining tone character of the best Les Pauls. They make these in an all-mahogany model for their painted finishes, but for their transparent finishes like this beautiful cherry sunburst, a maple top layer is used for aesthetic purposes. The pickups deliver the classic Paul tone – a powerful cutting bridge pickup and a thick, warm neck pickup. With a list price of $524 these sell at 40% at a nice price of $314 new. This one is in immaculate condition, set up to perfection, and just $239(SOLD 5/25). Add used Gibson gigbag for $20 (pic).
