Epiphone guitars are inspired by Gibson and made for guitarists of all abilities. I believe the world needs more guitarists and Epiphone is making that happen by creating high quality musical instruments available at your local Best Buy at great prices. In fact, order it online—you’ll be very happy with the guitar and be learning to play your favourite songs in no time. On the blog we’ve been testing some of these guitars and now you can enter for a chance to win one.

Do you have a guitar player in your family

There are too few guitarists on this planet. The recent passing of the legendary Eddie Van Halen made me wonder if we are replacing guitarists fast enough. How many people in your family play guitar? My answer … not enough! This should be the age when everyone you know can play. After all, great quality instruments have never been more accessible or affordable. Holiday season is approaching and Best Buy has a huge selection online that you should really consider when creating your gift list.

And great quality instruction is readily available too. You’ve probably heard that many of the great players, like Eddie who I just mentioned, never had a formal guitar lesson. He would have likely learned a lot faster if he had the one tool that all guitarists use now … the internet. Or you might already know a guitarist who can provide some initial lessons. I taught both my children to play guitar and the first guitar I bought for them was an Epiphone.

Mama let that boy play some rock and roll

The 3 Epiphone Les Paul Special I prizes for this contest will enable you to play lots of musical styles including heart-pounding rock and roll. We sent the prizes for this contest to Nikolai so he could test them out and give you an honest review. Read his article and watch his video and you’ll see that these are serious instruments that any guitarist would love.

As you saw in the video, these guitars can rock with a great tone and easy playability. If you like what you see, you should enter for a chance to win one of these guitars.

How to enter

Entering this contest is easy and you can enter once below this article and once below Nikolai’s review article. In a comment, tell us who in your family needs to learn how to play guitar and what song they should learn first.

What you can win

At the end of this contest we’ll choose three (3) people to each win one of the three Epiphones Les Paul Special I guitars that were reviewed by Nikolai.

Win an Epiphone Les Paul Guitar Contest Rules and Regulations

Good Luck


  1. My dad needs to learn how to play guitar so that he can catch up to my mom! He should probably learn Staircase to Heaven since it’s my mom’s favourite.

  2. I did take some guitar lessons in my youth, but had to give it up when my guitar was stolen and my parents could not afford to replace it. I think I would start with some of the basics, maybe some nursery rhymes or lullabies for my granddaughter.

  3. This guitar would be for my 5 year old. The oldest of 8 plays guitar and the young one want to learn it too. Unfortunately, the oldest isn’t keen on sharing his Telecaster. This would be great!

  4. my grand boy loves to play the air guitar so i am sure a real one would put him top of the world..and gotta be “JUMP” eddie van halen RIP

  5. I would love to learn to play a guitar, so I can play songs for my grandchildren like Yellow Submarine, Puff The Magic Dragon, & Christmas songs like Frosty The Snowman & Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer.

  6. I’d love to learn so that I could teach my daughters how to play when they’re a little older. I’d start simple with happy birthday – one my kids love singing alllll the time because “it’s always someone’s birthday”.

  7. I would love to learn to play along with my daughter. She has shown a genuine interest in learning how to play. I’d try and teach her Hotel California.
