I bought this online from Guitar Center for $179. It's used but in mint condition.There is a description of this model below.



"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 pickup—in the neck position, a la the Les Paul Special—and 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.

Case sold separately.

There is another one at the Guitar Center In Allentown Pennsylvania for $179.



Here is my guitar. It looks brand new. The finish is gloss and you can see the grain through it but that doesn't show up in the photos. The P-90 sound great,very much like the Gibson version)

Do like TV Yellows. Try to find Epi SG 1966 Special reissue in the same colour which was introduced in 2011 and you will have... two TV Yellow beasts.

LIEK'D.


In person, some Qingdao LP Specials off the Epiphone line have seemed more bile mustard than TV Yellow, others not too far off from proper 'Merikang Gibsons.

Actual different color series, or flubbed up mixing cans?

Probably the latter. Mine was made at the Qingao China plant in 2010.The color looks alot like that on the Gibson Les Paul "Junior Special" I used to own(below left).

I had traded this guitar but now traded back.I wasn't able to get back the brown case I had sold the guitar with so I got an Epiphone case for it today.



Here is a video review of the same model by a dude on youtube.
