The Les Paul Special VE has a Poplar body with a sleek look thanks to the Vintage Worn finish and no binding on the neck or body. The Les Paul VE is cut to the same classic profile of all Les Pauls and has a comfortable and fast Mahogany bolt-on neck with a 1960's SlimTaper D profile. The poplar composite fingerboard has traditional Pearloid "Dot" inlays, a 24.75" scale, a 14" radius, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a standard 1 11/16" nut. Just below the headstock is the famed "bell" shaped truss rod cover found on every Les Pauls since the early 50s with "Vintage Edition" in white.

Epiphone Open Coil Humbuckers
The Les Paul Special VE features Epiphone's world famous open-coil humbuckers with a warm 650R in the neck position and a slightly hotter 700T in the bridge or lead position. Controls include a 3-way pickup selector switch, a Master Volume, and a Master Tone control, each with traditional "Black Speed Knobs" pots with long lasting 500K O potentiometers.

All-Metal Hardware
Epiphone features all-metal rock solid hardware on all of its instruments. The Les Paul Special VE comes standard with the legendary Locktone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece for easy set up. Tuning is fast and reliable with Epiphone Premium Covered tuners with a 14:1 ratio. The higher the ratio, the more accurate your tuning. The tuners are mounted on an Epiphone Clipped Ear headstock with Les Paul Model in gold and the Epiphone log in silver. In addition, a "2016" Edition logo is on the back of the headstock.
