We've been telling you about some seriously great holiday happenings at Epiphone but in the whirl of activity this time of year, we don't blame you if you've been in the dark. Allow us to turn on the light.

Then there's the Les Paul Player Pack, a perfect gift for the new guitarist. The Pack includes a genuine Epiphone Les Paul Special-II LTD guitar featuring two classic humbucker pickups and a 10-watt Electar guitar amp with a 10ft guitar cable. Epiphone also includes a clip-on headstock chromatic tuner, a guitar strap, medium picks, and an easy-to-carry gigbag.
And best of all for new players, the Les Paul Player Pack comes with free downloadable guitar lessons from eMedia covering rock, blues, folk, country, hard rock, metal, and everything in-between.
Speaking of Les, Epiphone's history with legendary guitarist and innovator Les Paul dates back to the early 1940s when Les, working nights at the Epiphone factory on 14th Street in New York City, created one of the first solid body electric guitars, better known as "The Log."
Over the next 15 years, Les continued to develop his dream guitar that would "sustain for days" and in the late '50s, the historic Gibson and Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan produced the Les Paul Standard, the world's #1 electric guitar. And up to the end of his life, Les was still working with Gibson and Epiphone engineers on new ideas for pickups, electronics, and radical new ways to put more power into the hands of guitarists.
The Les Paul is the guitar that never goes out of style. And we make them like we always have--same molds, same magnets, same wood, same everything---only better! Check out our special holiday offer featuring four versions of the world's #1 electric perfect for any budget and any player. Choose between the Les Paul Special II, the Les Paul 100, the Les Paul Standard Plus, and the Les Paul Custom PRO which Les himself would have admired since it goes well with either a white or a black tuxedo.
