EPIPHONE LTD ED LES PAUL SPECIAL SINGLE CUT, TV YELLOW
The limited edition Epiphone Les Paul Special SC Electric Guitar reproduces the simple pleasures of a 55-year-old classic. At the same time the guitar updates the format with a second pickupin the neck position, a la the Les Paul Specialand improved hardware in the form of a Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece combination.
Introduced in 1954 as an entry-level version of the Les Paul, the Les Paul Junior graduated from kids bedrooms, to garage bands, to club and arena stages through the course of 3 decades as it became a favorite not only with beginners, but with professional guitarists, too. The bare-bones, slab-bodied, single-cutaway electric guitar earned the respect of rock and rollers in particular, and became a punk favorite in the late ’70s and early ’80s, but also turned up in the hands of a surprisingly diverse range of guitar stars.
As simple as the Les Paul Junior is in design and construction, its basic cornerstone ingredients add up to create a robust and toneful guitar. The marriage of hot, raw single-coil P-90 pickups, a resonant mahogany body, and sturdy glued-in neck make the Epiphone Les Paul Special SC a guitar with surprising reserves of depth and power at an extremely appealing price.
