The Epiphone Limited Edition Lee Malia RD Custom Artisan is one of the most customized and unique guitars that has ever come out of Epiphone’s factory.

For a limited time, Epiphone has brought back the innovative 70's RD model, model for guitarist Lee Malia of Bring Me The Horizon. The RD is Lee Malia's third signature model following the success of his Epiphone Les Paul and Explorer. The '70s-style Gibson Artisan aesthetics offer a real vintage vibe, especially with the '59 neck carve. This guitar is extremely versatile whether you are into modern metal or classic rock, it can do just about anything thanks to the pickup configuration. The Lee Malia RD looks vintage but features modern appointments such as the set of Gibson Pickups that bring a massive array of sound.

Inspired by an Elegant and Vintage Design
Lee Malia's signature RD takes its inspiration from the Gibson Artisan which was first introduced in 1977. The ornate and unique features of the Artisan like the floral patterns and walnut finish have made their way over to the RD, creating a truly spectacular looking guitar. A classic mahogany body with maple top offers plenty of warmth and sustain while the 7-layer binding pairs well with the walnut gloss finish.

Vintage Inspired Neck
For the neck of the Epiphone RD, Lee had chosen to go with the vintage feel of the 1959 neck profile that he had used on his Les Paul and Explorer models as well. The chunky mahogany neck provides plenty of sustain and feels very natural while the 22 fret, torrefied composite fingerboard gives off the late '70s vibe with distinct pearloid floral pattern inlays.

Authentic Gibson Pickups Made for Crunch
The unique combination of pickups in the Lee Malia RD make the guitar stand out sonically just like how the artisan aesthetics give off that late 70's era look. In the bridge position sits a hot Gibson USA 84T-LM Humbucker which breaks up easy for soaring leads and crunch rhythms. Easily get single-coil tones by pulling up on the volume switch which make clean tones shimmer. The neck pickup is a Gibson USA P-94 Single Coil which is Gibson's famous P90-style single coil pickup in a traditional humbucker sized housing. It delivers plenty of output and sustain with roaring mids and deep lows. To cancel the 60-cycle hum from the P-94 single-coil, there is a hidden dummy pickup in the back of the guitar.

Just Awesome!!!!


I was hesitant to buy a newer Epiphone. I own a 2004 Les Paul Custom and absolutely love it and let me tell you, Epiphone did not disappoint with this baby. I would have to say the RD Artisan is easily one of the best playing and sounding guitars that I have ever owned. Thanks to Orlando at Sam Ash and everyone that helped getting this baby to me in one piece.
