Overview

Epiphone is proud to announce the Ltd. Ed. Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom. Inspired by the '70s era vintage classic Les Paul Artisan, the Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom features a totally unique pickup combo of a Gibson P-94 in the rhythm position and a Gibson 84T-LM humbucker with coil tapping in the bridge position.

Lee Malia is the lead guitarist for Bring Me The Horizon, the hard rocking British quintet that' breaking new ground with their pioneering combination of metal and electronica. With the release of their latest album Sempiternal and a sold out U.S. tour, Bring Me the Horizon is quickly becoming one of the most talked about bands of the decade. And Lee Malia' incredible technique and melodic style can be heard on stages around the world on his new Ltd. Ed. Epiphone Signature Les Paul Custom.

œI just wanted to create something that looks really classy, said Malia. œSomething that I think appeals to anyone who plays any genre of music. Anyone could pick up this guitar and not necessarily know that I play in a metal band.

A Classic Remade for the 21st Century: The Lee Malia Les Paul Custom was inspired by the Les Paul Artisan, a now-rare '70s classic. The Lee Malia Les Paul Custom features a Walnut Gloss finish with a Maple top and a Mahogany body cut to the same dimensions of all classic Les Pauls. The body has 7-layer binding on the front and back in Ivory and Black. The black pickguard has 3-layer black and white binding.
Malia choose the Mahogany neck, which has a 1959 Rounded C-Profile shape with a 12 radius and a 24.75 scale. The Rosewood fingerboard has a '70s era œArtisan floral pattern in pearloid with a single layer of Ivory binding. The Ivory nut is made from artificial bone material and has a standard 1.68 width.

The œclipped ear headstock is also familiar to all Les Paul fans and has the classic Epiphone scroll logo in pearloid with 5-layer binding in Ivory and Black. The headstock also has the vintage style Artisan floral pattern inlaid in pearloid with a black œbell shaped truss rod cover in black and white with Les Paul Ltd. Ed. Custom in white. Lee Malia' signature is on the back of the headstock along with the Epiphone Limited Edition logo.

Gibson USA Pickups: For his signature Les Paul, Lee Malia choose a unique combination of Gibson pickups. The neck pickup features a Gibson USA P-94TM single coil pickup (also a favorite of Mr. Les Paul himself). The bridge pickup features a hot-wound Gibson USA 84T-LMTM humbucker, which breaks up easily with any amp. The humbucker also features coil-tapping, which is activated via the bridge pickup' push/pull volume control. Both pickups are controlled by a standard 3-way all-metal Epiphone white toggle switch with Black Tophat controls with metal inserts and volume and tone for each pickup.

œWith the pickup configuration, you can pretty much do anything, said Malia. œWith coil-tapping you can get the sound of any guitar you can imagine. It's really good if you're writing a clean section, too. You can also get a nice tone straight into a computer. You don't have to use an amp mod to get it to sound good. It's just a really nice guitar. I™m so proud of it.

Classic Gold Epiphone Hardware: The Ltd. Ed. Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom comes with Epiphone' world renowned hardware including a gold LockToneTM Tune-o-matic bridge and gold Stopbar tailpiece. Other hardware features include Epiphone' exclusive non-rotating heavy duty output jack, straplocks, and gold premium die-cast machine heads with metal œtulip buttons with a 14:1 tuning ratio. An optional hard case is also available.

Comments about Epiphone Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom Artisan Electric Guitar:

Well, I've been playing 40 years+ and I own quite a few axes, from Fender, Gibson, Epiphone, PRS, and Martin. Of course Gibson and Epi's are my personal favorite for various reasons. Anyway, I barely know whom Lee Malia is, when I saw him showing off his new signature custom LP I looked at it, the specs, and thought this does seem to be pretty nice. I tried to find one in various stores without any luck. So, I ordered one from Guitar Center knowing they are nice enough to have a 30 day MBG. Thinking to myself, I have to see it and try it before I can commit. I received it a few days ago, triple boxed tightly and nicely for extra protection. Let me just say, right out of the box looking at it IS very, very impressive. It looks and feels like a high end Gibson. I also know that usually unplugged an electric guitar that sounds great like that is usually, if the electronics are good, well quite awesome plugged in. Needless to say, I can't return it now as I'm in total love with this baby! Looks, feel, sound, is beyond many Gibsons, not to mention the price point for this custom is incredible! It does stink that it doesn't even come with a gig bag, or the option, however THAT is truly the only thing that made me think twice for a moment. There is a sku for the EXACT HS case for this, which I am going to get. Whether Epiphone USA tweaked this, or GC before sending it, as I can't see how shipping overseas this could have been in the PERFECT setup and state that is was/is in. Thank you whomever! Again, pics don't do this piece justice, it IS SO IMPRESSIVE overall, woodgrain, inlays, hardware, electronics. It goes from sweet to killer in a second! Just get one, it'll be your favorite by far for more than 10 reasons!

            Comments about Epiphone Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom Artisan Electric Guitar:

            Bought this guitar recently because I thought the pickup configuration would create some interesting sounds and thought it would be ideal for blues.

            But it didn't stop there...I cannot believe how full the voice is on this guitar. Not only is it a beauty with the Walnut top, gold trim, black PUPS, cream binding and the finish, but the P94 and humbucker combo really allows a lot of styles of playing in a single guitar. Setup was pretty good right out of the box and paired with the Vox amp and a little reverb it made some amazing sounds.

            Great price and pretty impressive capabilities in this single guitar
