  • Travis Browning Epiphone Les Paul Special VE review

    Our very own Travis Browning is turning into quite the gear reviewer. Check out his latest review, this time for the Epiphone Les Paul Special VE, right here.

    Feel free to post any comments, and if you have any questions, hopefully Travis will be along shortly to answer them for you.

    Thanks, Phil! This Epiphone was so fun to review, and such a great guitar in general. I'm definitely here to answer any questions about the guitar, the process, or anything at all.

    Thanks!

          Travis, take a look at the bottom of the review - although I've tried to steer the discussion over here (where it's easier to interact), some people have still commented about it there.

              It is! And beyond that, its just a great guitar! I think the "60s SlimTaper-D" is my favorite neck ever! I do a lot of picking around open chords and it provides enough chunk to feel just right for me, and when I go to the middle of the neck for some melody lines it tapers down and fits my hand perfectly. I don't have massive hands, but I do have fairly long fingers.

                Finally I find an objective review from a real expert. What a great and informative review this truly is. I'm into rock and metal and want to play along to my favourite bands. I Googled the best guitar for beginners and the Epiphone Les Paul Special player packs came up with Bryan Epsey doing demos of the Epiphone Les Paul Player Pack, Performance Pack and Goth SG Performance Pack. After some deliberation I chose the Epiphone Les Paul Performance Pack but discovered that it had been discontinued with the Electar 15w. This has put me in the position of buying the guitar and amp separately. The amp which suits my budget is the Line 6 Spider Classic 15 1x8 Combo. I am still undecided on the guitar. I watched demos and reviews on YouTube and watched Lee from Dawsons demo the Epiphone Les Paul VE and the Special II. He was extremely impressed with the Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Special II Plustop (Heritage Cherry Sunburst).

                I get the impression that the VE is a downgrade of the Special II, especially sine the VE costs less. Now I have a dilemma of not knowing which to choose. I would be immensely grateful for your thoughts?
