Product Description

This gorgeous guitar is one of the most distinct signature models Epiphone has ever made! The limited edition Lee Malia RD Custom Artisan was designed in collaboration with Lee Malia of Bring Me the Horizon. Utilizing the iconic RD body shape first introduced in the 70s, this axe exudes a great vibe and attitude. A Gibson USA P-94 single coil and 84T-LM humbucker pickup, vintage style Artisan inlay, and custom gigbag with hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity put the finishing touches on this superb guitar!

Epiphone LE Lee Malia RD Custom Artisan Features

  • Designed with Lee Malia of Bring Me the Horizon
  • Rare Vintage 70s era RD design
  • Gibson USA P-94 and 84T-LM humbucker with coil-splitting
  • Artisan inlay and gold hardware
  • Custom gigbag and hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity
A New Sound for A New Generation
The original RD line of guitars and basses were first released in the late 70s as a Research and Development series that combined cutting edge electronics with classic style. It’s a fitting design for Lee Malia, who has emerged as one of the leading guitarists of his generation for his work in the pioneering pop and metal band Bring Me the Horizon.

Like Lee’s classic Les Paul Artisan, the new Ltd. Ed. Lee Malia RD Custom Artisan features Malia’s favorite Walnut finish with Ivory and Black binding on the body and headstock along with an Artisan floral inlay in pearloid on a smooth Torrefied Composite fingerboard. The Mahogany body has a Maple top to add bite to the tone. The Mahogany neck has an easy-to-play 1959 Rounded ‘C’ profile with a 24.75 inch scale length. The black traditional clipped ear headstock also has floral inlay with a pearloid Epiphone logo in 60s era typeface with a Lee Malia signature inlay on the back.

Gibson USA Pickups with Coil-Splitting
To get his distinctive tone, Lee Malia prefers the combination of a sensitive P-94 single coil pickup for rhythm and a powerful Gibson 84T-LM humbucker for solos. In between the two pickups under the pickguard is a Dummy Coil that cancels the hum when in single-coil mode. Classic TopHat knobs with metal inserts control neck and bridge Volume and Tone. The bridge volume pot also serves as a coil-spitting control (via a push/pull switch) so the humbucker can also be used as a single-coil pickup.

Epiphone Rock Solid Hardware
Lee Malia’s Ltd. Ed. RD Custom Artisan features stylish gold hardware including premium 14:1 ratio die-cast machine heads with tulip buttons plus Epiphone’s road worthy exclusive non-rotating, heavy duty output jack with a metal output jack plate. Set up and intonation is easy thanks to the classic combo of a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece. The three-way toggle switch is on the upper bout. A custom gigbag and a Certificate of Authenticity hand-signed by Lee Malia are also included.

Lifetime Warranty
The Ltd. Ed. Lee Malia RD Custom Artisan comes with Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s legendary 365/24/7 Customer Service. Limited Editions don’t last long, especially when they are designed by Lee Malia! See your Authorized Epiphone Dealer today or visit Epiphone.com to find a dealer near you!
