You get classic Les Paul tone and the Les Paul’s ability to reject annoying “hum” (interference from fluorescent lights and other extraneous electrical sources). The bolt-on maple neck is designed by Epiphone for easy playability and features a comfortable rosewood fingerboard.
The Les Paul Player Pack also includes a 10 watt Epiphone Electar Amp designed for easy portability that is great for practice and perfect for dorm room parties. It includes the most sought-after guitar effect in the form of a clean/overdrive button and features a headphone jack, so you can practice without disturbing the neighbors.
The clip-on tuner included in the Les Paul Player Pack will have you tuning your guitar almost instantly, so you can get right on to playing.
Buy the Epiphone Les Paul Player Pack and get access to downloadable interactive guitar lessons from eMedia. As you practice, eMedia tracks your progress and displays your notes onscreen on an animated fretboard and in musical notation. eMedia covers styles from rock to blues, folk, country, hard rock, metal, and everything in-between.
You’ll be playing sooner than you ever thought possible. Your upgradable eMedia software is available in English, French, Spanish, and German.
Because Epiphone is part of Gibson, the most respected name in guitar manufacturing, you can be sure that the Epiphone Les Paul Player Pack will give you years of guitar playing joy.
The Electar 10 Watt Amp is suitable if you are just beginning to play electric guitar.
- Volume control
- A clean play and distortion button
- Treble and Bass controls
- Aux in to plug your MP3 for music to play to
- Headphone plug outlet

- Super small and light amp
Some reviews reflect that the amp can be a little light on tone, but it is only 10 watts. It’s a good amp to plug into for a beginner.
Here are some other reviews on this great package.
The history of the Epiphone Guitar
In 1957, Gibson Guitars bought the Epiphone company. This means Epiphone has a license
to use the design and specifications of the famous Les Paul Guitar design.
Gibson Les Paul guitars are built in Nashville in the USA and Epiphone Les Paul Guitars have been built in Qingdao in China, since 2004.
Although Epiphone is a less expensive Les Paul, it still has a high standard of finish and quality fittings. They are both solid-body guitars but the Epiphone is lighter, which can be a big bonus when you stand up to play for hours.
A great buy for a new guitarist. You don’t need talent, just the desire to be a great guitarist.
Once you have bought your guitar come back and have a read of my posts for the beginner guitarist.
Thank you for reading this review. I hope it has helped.
