Custom Sound, Custom Colour
Matt Heafy's signature Les Paul 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 6 String Ltd. Ed. Custom model feature 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 inch and the ebony fingerboard has a 12 inch 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 inch. 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
The Ltd. Ed. Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom feature Epiphone's no-compromise electronics including a 1/4 inch non-rotating output jack and volume and tone controls with Black Speed Knobs that are powered by full-size 500K ohm potentiometers. The pickup switch is Epiphone's all-metal 3-way pickup selector with a black toggle cap.
Matt Heafy asked that his Les Paul Custom feature black active EMG pickups voiced especially to the guitar's unique profile. The Ltd. Ed. 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 centre of a sound revolution since it was first introduced. Utilising 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.
Epiphone Rock Solid Hardware
Like all Epiphones, the Matt Heafy LP Custom includes Epiphone's made-to-last heavy duty hardware including Epiphone StrapLocks and a black LockTone™ Tune-o-matic/StopBar bridge. It also features deluxe die-cast machine heads with metal 'tulip buttons' with a 14:1 tuning ratio.
