Epiphone Les Paul "AFD" Slash Special II - Flame Maple Top

Appetite for Destruction!

Designed by Slash himself, the AFD Les Paul Special-II has more appointments than most other entry-level electric guitars. Topped with AAA flame maple, this guitar also features a dark cherry mahogany body and neck, ivory binding, and a silk print of Slash’s Snakepit logo on the headstock. The first time you plug into a high-gain amp, the AFD Les Paul Special-II’s Ceramic Plus Zebra-coil humbuckers will treat you to the thick, overdriven, screaming metallic tone that Slash made famous.

Description

The Epiphone Les Paul Special-II – a real Les Paul at an amazing price

This streamlined Epiphone Special, a little smaller and weighing less than many of the Les Pauls you’ll encounter, delivers a fat and nasty tone thanks to its two open coil humbucker pickups. The Special-II features a mahogany body and neck, a rosewood fretboard with a 1.68″ nut width, chrome hardware, and volume/tone controls. This is the go-to guitar for those who want to learn on a Les Paul-style guitar but don’t want to break the bank.

Epiphone Slash “AFD” Les Paul Special-II Features:

  • AAA flame maple top, dark cherry body, and ivory binding for stunning appearance
  • Ceramic Plus Zebra-coil humbuckers deliver Slash’s signature tone
  • Built in Tuner in bridge pickup ring
  • Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece produce excellent tone and sustain
  • Die-cast tuners have a 14:1 ratio for quick and spot-on tuning

Notes on this specific guitar

There are two finish flaws on this used instrument. They are highlighted in the pictures. This guitar was refurbished as described below, and no other issues exist. It looks as if the guitar was not played much but did get bumped twice. This guitar is a GREAT deal for a hard rocker with a budget.

Who is “Slash”, the Designer….

Known primarily for his work with the hard rock band Guns N’ Roses during the late 1980s, Slash has garnered a well-earned reputation as one of rock’s preeminent guitarists. Named the runner-up on Time magazine’s list of “The 10 Best Electric Guitar Players” in 2009, and ranking 65 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” in 2011, Slash continues to receive accolades from critics and music fans alike. Aside from his enormous success with Guns N’ Roses, Slash has also achieved acclaim with his side project, Slash’s Snakepit, and as a member of the group Velvet Revolver. In 2012, Slash received one of rock music’s highest honors when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Lorien Guitar Recovery Refurbished Instruments

In addition to selling newer factory refurbished instruments, Lorien Guitar Recovery is in the business of recovering unique older Epiphone, Squier, Mexican Fender, and other mid-range guitars for resale.

This instrument was refurbished by Lorien Guitar Recovery. Unlike a typical used guitar, this one was completely checked out, and tested by skilled guitar Technicians, and then put through a multi-point refresh and refurbish process

Our Refurbish Process

First we inspect the instrument for any physical or functional issues or damage. If the instrument has too much damage or does not meet minimum requirements, it is disassembled for parts and recycled; if it meets basic requirements it is refurbished. This is what we do:

  • All old hardware items that are damaged or non-functional are removed
  • All old strings are removed
  • All surfaces are treated and/or polished; dents and chips are repaired when appropriate
  • Rosewood pieces and fretboards are oiled with Lemon oil
  • Hardware is inspected, screws and nuts are tightened; non-functional pieces are replaced
  • Electronics, if present, are tested, and all contacts cleaned; broken electronics are replaced
  • Saddles and nuts are inspected, and if compromised, they are replaced.
  • The instrument is then re-assembled with new strings
  • The instrument receives a basic setup for playability.

Our Mission

Too many used instruments get rejected, and tossed into a closet, or outright thrown away, or sent to thrift stores. And too many people, who should be able to learn an instrument, cant afford to buy one or only one that is hard to play.

We believe every instrument should have a second chance, and every aspiring guitar player, should have a chance to buy a good guitar, at a fair price…. This is one of those guitars…. Don’t let it pass you by…. I offer my guitars at a fair price, but open the option for a best offer. We have to reject lowball offers, but always consider honest ones. Try it; I may be in a good mood today! If you have a low budget or no budget, let us know. We’ll dour best to get you an instrument that is playable and affordable.

Thanks for Looking…
