Overview

Epiphone and Trivium's Matt Heafy have team up to create the Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom-7 seven-string guitar, a 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 his distinctive approach to guitar, which has earned him and Trivium scores of dedicated fans around the world. Each of Trivium's albums has sold over half 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 and his revolutionary use of an LP Custom seven-string is a breakthrough in contemporary metal and hard rock. Now, Matt Heafy joins an illustrious group of Epiphone artists with the introduction of this signature model.

The Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom-7 features an all blacked-out ebony gloss finish that's especially striking on the sleek profile of an LP Custom. Like all great Les Pauls, it 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 1 7/8". 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.

Matt Heafy asked that these models feature black active EMG pickups voiced especially for the guitar's unique profile The Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom-7 seven-string features an EMG-707 in the neck position and an EMG 81-7 in the lead or bridge position. The 81-7 is EMG's king high-output pickup, designed especially for 7-string lead guitarists. The EMG 81-7 excels at high volume overdrive. The EMG-707 has long been the standard 7-string guitar pickup since its introduction in 2001. The 707 features Alnico V magnets with wide aperture coils, which beef up the low B tone while offering a more responsive and super tight overall sound. An easy-access 9V battery compartment can be found on the back of each guitar.

The Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom-7 seven string 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? 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, it includes Epiphone's made-to-last heavy-duty hardware including Epiphone StrapLocks, including a tune-o-matic-7/StopBar on this special seven-string. It also features deluxe die-cast machine heads with metal "tulip buttons" with a 14:1 tuning ratio. Case sold separately.
