Product Description

Designed in close collabortion with Matt Heafy of Trivium, the Limited Editon Les Paul Custom-7 seven-string features his custom sound and color. Matt is a breakthrough artist in comtemporary metal and hard rock which has earned him a fan base worldwide.

Now, Matt Heafy joins an illustrious group of Epiphone artists like Slash, Frank Iero, Joe Bonamassa, and Zakk Wylde with the introduction of this signature model, the Epiphone Limited Edition Matthew K Heafy Les Paul Custom-7. 

Custom Sound, Custom Color:
Matt Heafy 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 Matt Heafy 7-string Ltd. Ed. Custom model 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 inches 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 7/8 inch on the Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom-7 seven string guitar.

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. This guitar features a 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:
Matt Heafy asked that the Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom-7 seven string feature black active EMG pickups voiced especially for the guitar’s unique profile. The Ltd. Ed. 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 this guitar.

 No Compromise Electronics:
The Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom-7 seven string features 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 Ω 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, Matt Heafy LP Custom includes Epiphone’s made-to-last heavy duty hardware including Epiphone StrapLocks, a black Tune-o-matic-7/StopBar, and deluxe die-cast machine heads with metal tulip buttons with a 14:1 tuning ratio.

Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Neck is amazing! Smooth and fast!
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Wasn't very happy with the EMG 707 and 81-7 but switched them out for some Seymour Duncan Blackouts phase 2 and it changed everything! So much clarity and such a great tone.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish is amazing and no imperfections at all.

Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Greatest guitar for the price period!
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Was perfect! I play in Drop F so I had to adjust it a little for the tuning but it went easy and sounds amazing!
