my Choices are:

If you're going to get another guitar, why not get one that's substantially different from what you already have?

Getting another Special 2 sounds like a waste of money...If you want to buy another guitar why not get something a step up from what you have now?

To be honest I don't think the Studio would really be a huge step up either. What's your price range and what styles of music do you play?

why would you want two epiphone les paul specials or even a special and a studio? That makes no sense to me. Sell your special 2 and use the money you already have saved and buy a Epiphone les paul standard. It's an amazing guitar for the price.

I would say the studio.

Although i agree with everyone else, do something different, or wait.

Well, the GT is basically a Special with a trem and some added bling. Its most likely why they call it a "Special II GT".

The differences between it and the studio are the carved top, pickups (650T&700T vs. hot alnico classics), set neck vs. bolt on neck, the bridge and probably the tuners.

I'd go for a standard as well, though.

Of those two, the Studio is the much, much better guitar. Though really you should save up more and get a Standard as they in turn are much, much better than the Studio.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
