Epiphone has announced some new affordable guitars at the SNAMM.
Les Paul SL
The talk of the town is the new Les Paul SL. Billed as the “$99 Les Paul”, it comes in different funky colours including Pacific Blue shown above and Sunset Yellow below.
Not too sure about the wraparound bridge though. Let’s hope they don’t present too many problems down the road.
Les Paul LT
This should be considered a step up from the recent Les Paul Special VE due to its carved top. A simple basic guitar for those who are beginning or just wanting to try out the LP shape. Let’s hope the hardware is a step up too.
SG Special VE
So Epi has decided to give the VE treatment to the SG model this time. Like the Les Pauls, there are some nice colours to choose from.
Billed as the most affordable full solid Epi, this one should be attractive to those who prefer to have all solid construction in their guitars. How nice it would be if Epi can use the Wildkat style headstock on these.
