Matt Heafy Takes the LP Custom Into the Future

Epiphone and Trivium's Matt Heafy present the Ltd. Ed. Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom, a new and totally killer original take on the world famous Les Paul. Designed in close collaboration with Matt Heafy, each Ltd. Ed. Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom reflects Heafy's distinctive approach to guitar, which has earned him and Trivium scores of dedicated fans around the world. Trivium's records have sold over a million copies worldwide. Check out a Trivium performance and you'll see why. The rule books on how-to-play a Les Paul go right out the window when Heafy plugs in.

Custom Sound, Custom Color:  
The Epiphone Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom features an all blacked-out Ebony gloss finish that’s especially striking on the sleek profile of a LP Custom. Like all great Les Pauls, the Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom features a mahogany body with a plain maple veneer top, a time-tested combination that has gone virtually unchanged since the '50s.  The mahogany neck has a fast 1960's SlimTaper ‘D’ profile with a glued-in deep set neck joint with an "Axcess" heel for a smooth and easy reach to the upper frets. The scale length is 24.75" and the ebony fingerboard has a 12" radius and 22 medium jumbo frets and features pearloid block inlays, which seem to practically glow in the dark against the Ebony finish. The nut, which is also black, is cut to 1.68" on the Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom. The classic clipped dovewing headstock features the historic pearloid “split-diamond” Les Paul Custom inlay and a vintage style “Epiphone” logo in white. The bell-shaped truss rod cover is black with a shadow of white binding and MKH Les Paul Custom in white silk screen.  Each guitar features beautiful 7-ply white and black binding on the top and 5-ply binding on the headstock. The fingerboard features single ply white binding.  

The Power of EMG Pickups:  
Matt Heafy asked that the Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom feature black active EMG pickups voiced especially for the guitar’s unique profile.  The Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom features an EMG-85 in the neck position and an EMG-81 in the bridge position. The EMG-81 is one of the most popular metal pickups ever and has been at the center of a sound revolution since it was first introduced. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the EMG-81 is designed for detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. The EMG-85 features Alnico-V magnets and has a slightly more rounded tone. The classic combination of an EMG 81 with an EMG 85 in a Les Paul Custom offers metal guitarists an incredible array of extreme possibilities. An easy-access 9V battery compartment can be found on the back of the guitar. 

No Compromise Electronics:  
The Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom features Epiphone’s no-compromise electronics including a 1/4” non-rotating output jack and volume and tone controls with Black Speed Knobs that are powered by full-size 500K Ω potentiometers. The pickup switch is Epiphone’s all-metal 3-way pickup selector with a black toggle cap.  Epiphone Rock

Solid Hardware:  
Like all Epiphones, the Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom includes Epiphone’s made-to-last heavy duty hardware including Epiphone StrapLocks, and a black LockTone Tune-o-matic/StopBar bridge. The Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom also features deluxe die-cast machine heads with metal “tulip buttons” with a 14:1 tuning ratio.
