The ultimate in Epiphone Les Pauls. The Midnight Special is an absolute beast of a guitar. They're incredibly hard to find as only 500 were built and I scoured the planet until I found one. One of the best guitars I've ever owned. I'm a guitar collector as well as a semi-professional musician and out of all the brands I've owned (and occasionally endorsed,) such as Schecter, ESP, Ibanez, Fernandes, PRS etc, this is one of the best guitars I've ever encountered. The only two instruments I've ever played that could match it are my Jackson King V and Gibson LP Custom, both of which were Custom Shop instruments. Deep-carved top, gorgeous rosewood fretboard, unchambered solid mahogany body and those howling, growling EMG pickups. If you can find one of these weapons, do whatever you have to do to end up owning it.
