Epiphone Les Paul SL

Black Friday deal. About £10 cheaper than I've seen it anywhere else. Available in all the colour options at the same price (the colours are normally more expensive than the black version).

Can't comment on the quality of the guitar itself but it's the cheapest price I've seen it and £79 for an Epiphone seems worth a punt to me.

Just looking at the pickups, this is cheap for a reason.



As long as it plays well, then it's fine to learn on. I used to be a guitar teacher, many people make a resolution to get fit in the New Year and go to the gym, many people make a resolution to play the guitar, when they find it a bit harder than they expected they give up. If you give up then £79 isn't much money to spend, BUT the guitar must be comfortable to play and not obstruct playing. You can spend double and it would be worth it of course, for a beginner the pickups are not what you want to be concentrating on, it's the playability and comfort.

Yeah, it's definitely an entry level guitar, but at this price range (for something brand new) you're not going to find many high spec options
DV247 had it for £75 delivered PreBlackFriday Sale

Its now dearer than Andertons

I learnt to play on a cheap guitar and couldn’t believe how much easier it was to play once I splashed out on something that was better quality. A lot less pressure needed on the strings to get a clean sound

I agree, although it's dependent on how well setup the guitar is, and construction factors and it doesn't mean that this guitar plays badly, but I can't comment on this guitar specifically as I've never tried it out.
Would this suit my 15 year old daughter who is intending to learn guitar?

I would say it should be a good bet. If not this then there is the next step up of the Les Paul special which is normally around the £100 mark, or the fender squire range has a number of good entry level guitars (the squire bullet Mustang gets good reviews and can be found for around £95)
I ordered this for my 9 year old. She's been playing my 20 year old Squire Tele. They don't make cheap guitars like they used to, this is extremely lightweight and I feel wouldn't last the test of time. However, it does feel great to play, and looks lovely in person. For the money I'm happy, and if she keeps it up for a year and wants a more expensive guitar next Christmas, then this one has done its its job.
