StAmp!'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Hmm ..."

Epiphone Les Paul Special Bass
Manufacture Korea apparently.
-This is not a Gibson neck but it's still rather like steak beast x) for my part I did not find it very pleasant ...
-20 Frets (classic), 2 Alnico Humbucker Epiphone liabilities coil (1 tone knob and volume for each)


The handle is, to my taste, not very nice, it is not big and easy to play.
Access to acute is easy because here we have the specialty of the brand: the handle stuck. The sound that comes out is correct, it not break three-legged duck but that's okay.


The sound comes out and relatively large (depending on the settings that are doing), maybe a little soft ... say it is okay overall, but I do not advise to funk (undeniably not enough treble in the sound).


That's been a little over a year since I've I do not play much with if you play with your fingers and you tend to attack your strings I advise against it, the string action is how to say. BALEZE.Je .. suggest you play with a pick this low fill that perhaps a little lack of original attack.
Anything satin varnish is really crappy (there's no other word), it comes off easily, it is just to move his finger by pressing it.
I do not agree with what the others said: it is heavy.
I finally at least one point where you can not complain about the body is maple that exchange Agatis rotten, but it is (much) heavier.

This is the final purpose of all these bad points we quickly understood why we see very little, I moved quickly to something else after this low, and (although this is far from being the lowest of the year see my gear) it struck me 15x better.

Epiphone Les Paul Special Bass
Made in Korea
-20 Boxes shrunk
-Corp in solid mahogany and
Glued-in mahogany neck
-Corp type Les Paul
-Entirely black
-2 Humbucker Pickups
-3 Buttons: one for each microphone and one for the tone


The handle is very nice, I was expecting a very round handle at the Gibson is perfect but not very ergonomic.
Like all Gibson or Epiphone is expected to be heavy weight. IT is not.
Being also bass, I was looking for a bass with a nice round sound that goes well. I'm not disappointed.


I use it for a more "electric" on some songs. Otherwise I play the bass. But I wanted a bass with a round, warm and easily manageable. It's perfect for what I wanted.
I play an Orange Crush PIX25BX.


I have been using and I was looking for a bass with a sound that fit me without either ruin me since it will travel bcp. I tried low cheap worth between 100 and 200 €. They are almost all to forget (except an Ibanez and a Yamaha which I had liked what I was looking for). And then the occasion: this bass less than 200 € NEW (FYI there are guys who sell their secondhand at the same price ...).
the sound I wanted, round, warm, easy to play, original form (for bass)

LITP_fleo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Epiphone Les Paul Special Bass
-20 Boxes fretted
-Mahogany body
-2 Humbucker pickups
Landmarks-by "points"
-3 Knobs: one for each pickup and tone


The neck-and very fine, very smooth and therefore very pleasant to go (especially when the bass going after a Storm)

-Access to acute weight is easy and acceptable (it does not sting the nose too)

-The sound of a proper obtension is relatively simple (a few adjustments here and there and you're done!)

She should have several styles of play: slap, plectrum and fingers (of course) ...


-Suitable for many styles of music through simple adjustments

Played with an amp-"Drive 30W", no worries


I use it for some time but greatly appreciated!

The handle is really nice thanks to its smoothness and texture.
The sound is very good and varied, and especially the look of this bass is very interesting.
The only pitfalls of is that the moves (during the slap for example) or frottments (ongle. ..) leave some traces of paint.

I had used a Storm before (for almost two years) and the change is obvious.

The value for money is good: I bought € 279 (Thomann).

If the choice was a remake I ressigne immediately. I highly recommend!

Le Chevelu's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Epiphone Les Paul Special Bass
-Apparently it is made in Korea
-20 Boxes fret
-Corp solid mahogany handle and Saddle
-Corp type Les Paul
-Completely black
-2 Humbucker Pickups
-3 Buttons: one for each microphone and one for the Tone


-The neck is thin enough
-On accde easily treble, and slide the handle is a pleasure
I expected a low-rather heavy! But instead, it is rather lgre (before I had an old Gibson, who silent extrment heavy). It stings the nose lgrement, but I think it's pretty common to Les Paul!


-I play a little bit of everything, and she did not!
-I play with a Peavey Basic 112 and did not worry too much possible! I also play with a Hartke 15w and there is a problem: if I put the volume of the microphone low around 8 and if I put the volume of the amplifier 7, it saturates! The moral of the story: even when having a good stuff!
-3 Buttons, it's simple enough to rgler!


-I use it for one month and I'm not complaining!
-What I like most? Les Paul shape and the fact that it is all in black! I did not want a bass that everyone possde! I wanted a low-single: No jazz bass or precision! Everyone has! find a person with a Les Paul bass is a little more difficult!
-Before I played on an old Gibson and a squier! Well I prfre my Epiphone!
