Overview

Epiphone welcomes one of the greatest metal guitarists of all time, Bj¶rn Gelotte of In Flames, to the Epiphone family of signature artists with the premier of the Ltd. Ed.

Bj¶rn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit
Designed exclusively by the Swedish riff master (and former drummer!) of In Flames, Bj¶rn Gelotte, the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Bj¶rn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit is a classic Les Paul design with some personal touches that reflect Gelotte' incredible attention to detail that have made him one of the most influential metal guitarists of his generation.

Ltd. Ed. Bj¶rn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit
The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Bj¶rn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit features a classic Les Paul profile with a Mahogany body finished in a deep Ebony gloss and trimmed with 5-layer cream and black binding. Gelotte chose a Mahogany neck that' rounded to a Custom ˜59 profile and topped with a beautiful Ebony fingerboard. Like all great Les Pauls, the neck is glued to the body with a deep set neck joint. The Les Paul-standard style 24.75 scale neck has pearloid block inlays, a standard 1.68 nut, and an Epiphone Les Paul headstock with In Flames™ iconic œJester inlay on the front and a Ltd. Ed. logo in gold on the back. The iconic Les Paul style bell-shaped truss rod cover features Bj¶rn Gelotte signature in white.

EMG Pickups
It takes a dynamic pickup that can match Bj¶rn Gelotte fiery chops and for his debut signature Les Paul, Gelotte chose legendary EMG pickups with an EMG-85 USA œMetalWorks active humbucker in the neck position and an EMG-81 USA œMetalWorks active humbucker in the bridge position.

The œ85 was one of EMG's first custom pickups and features close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets for a powerful sound with exceptional organic tone and versatility. The EMG-81 USA œMetalWorks active humbucker in the lead position is perhaps EMG' most famous pickup and the one that started the œactive revolution. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone of the œ81 has detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. Used together, the sound blistering and unmistakable.

Classic Les Paul Controls
Both EMG pickups are powered by standard Les Paul-style volume and tone controls using Black œTop Hat control knobs and Epiphone' patented all-metal 3-way Pickup Selector switch with a cream toggle cap. Each pickup is powered by a 9-volt battery located in an EZ-access compartment on the back of the body.

Rock Solid Hardware
The Ltd. Ed. Bj¶rn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit features Epiphone' famous LockTone„¢ "Nashville-Style" Tune-o-matic bridge with a Stopbar tailpiece along with Grover® Roto-matic„¢ machine heads with an 18:1 tuning ratio for quick, intuitive and no-slip tuning.

Comes with hardshell case.

    Comments about Epiphone Bjorn Gelotte Signature Les Paul Electric Guitar:

    This is a truly beautiful instrument. If I didn't know it was an Epiphone, I'd swear it was a Gibson. It looks, feels, and plays beautifully. Top notch craftsmanship and fantastic sound. Well worthy of carrying Björn's name.
