Epiphone Les PaulEpiphone 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.

Win an Epiphone Les Paul Guitar Contest Rules and Regulations

Good Luck


  1. I need to learn how to play- it would be so much fun!!! My first song I should learn- Hotel California- my Ultimate favorite!!!

  2. My wife is the musical one in our family and since she has been singing kids songs to our baby I think that would be a good start for her first songs.

  3. OMG my son would love this. He started playing guitar a few years ago . His school had a guitar class & he excelled. He can gift his guitar to his brother and then they can play any song together. Maybe some Harry Chapin for Mom

  4. My old hands need to learn, “Love Me Tender.” although I should probably start with the song’s original. “Aura Lee.”

  5. My daughter took lesons when she was in a bad place with school bulling. She now sits in her room trying to teach herself. This would be a great gift for her.

  6. I would love my young son to learn how to play guitar. The song I would like him to learn first is Fast Car by Tracy Chapman.

  7. My son needs to learn how to play guitar. He took lessons when he was young and was doing well and it is definitely time to start again. He should learn to play Blackbird by Paul McCartney.

  8. With a tough year behind us and possibly another tough year ahead, while the winter will most likely result in most of us staying indoors, I would be a prime candidate to learn how to play the electric guitar. I would most likely start with learning the Blues, and practice Robert Johnson’s ‘Crossroads’ but would probably use Eric Clapton’s version.

  9. I should learn to play the guitar – I have a book, a DVD and even a little ukulele – but so far no guitar. I am rather partial to CCR so I expect one of their songs would be first on my list to try.

  10. My teenage son is trying to learn how to play guitar but it’s having difficulty because the guitar he’s using is an old best up classical and the fret board is messed up – the strings sort of buzz on every chord. He wants to learn proper chords and music theory to play jazz. He’s been saving up for an electric guitar, so this contest for an Epiphone Les Paul is really special!

  11. My Fiancee needs to learn how to play the guitar. She should learn “Hey Stoopid” by Alice Cooper, that way she can sing my theme song lol.

  12. My 7 year old grandson is learning to play on an acoustic guitar an wants to have an electric guitar this would be a great gift for him.

  13. My daughter really wants to learn how to play guitar. I’m thinking we will start with something easy like Twinkle Twinkle lol

  14. My hubby would be so thrilled with this! He always wanted to learn to play guitar and now has more free time to do so. Such a wonderful prize!
