Iconic Les Paul Design
Crafted from sturdy mahogany topped with plain maple veneer, the guitar delivers a beautifully warm tone with plenty of resonance ideal for searing leads and powerful licks. Mahogany is known for its pleasant characteristics, offering players balanced tones with excellent grind and bite to cut through dense mixes. The classic Les Paul shape embodies the essence of the original ones created by Les Paul himself, offering a truly iconic design enhanced by the high-quality craftsmanship of Epiphone.
Comfortable SlimTaper Profile
The smooth mahogany neck is designed with a classic 1960s SlimTaper neck profile, featuring a comfortable ‘’D’’ shape to provide an enhanced playing experience. Originally introduced and made famous by many 1960s era, Kalamazoo-made, Gibson and Epiphone guitars, the profile is designed with the perfect thickness for a stable neck and a comfortably, speedy performance. The neck is coupled with an ebony fingerboard, adding an incredibly fast attack with muscular lows, snappy highs, and enhanced the mahogany with extra warmth and openness.
Matt Heafy’s signature Les Paul features a set of EMG pickups, delivering incredibly powerful tones suitable for the demanding playing style required for heavy metal. In the neck position is EMG’s 85 humbucker, made with Alnico V magnets to deliver an incredibly muscular growl and a smooth lead tone. The bridge pickup is EMG’s 81 humbucker, made with powerful ceramic magnets to provide detailed intensity with plenty of high-end cut and sustain. Use both together to create incredibly versatile tones, or switch between the 81 and 85 to produce slicing leads or thundering rhythm sections.
LockTone Tune-O-Matic Bridge
Tune-O-Matic bridges are an extremely popular fixed bridge type due to their stability, reliability, comfortable playing position, and impressive sustain. Unlike other systems that require tools to adjust and remove, the LockTone bridge automatically locks the tune-o-matic and the stopbar onto their posts for added security and improved sustain. Overall, this modern innovation will provide optimum reliability and ease-of-play, perfect for gigging musicians.
