EMG Active Pickups
Matt Heafy’s Ltd. Ed. SnØfall Les Paul Custom 7-string features his favorite active custom EMG 7-string pickups in custom white. In the lead position is an EMG-81-7, one of the most popular metal pickups ever made for 7-string guitars. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the EMG-81-7 is designed for detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. In the neck position is an EMG-707. First introduced in 2001, the EMG 707 was designed to eliminate the common problem of a muddy or cloudy-sounding low B-string.
The EMG 707 features Alnico V magnets with wide aperture coils to bring up the low B string tone while maintaining a balanced and articulate upper register. Epiphone’s no-compromise electronics include a 1/4 inch non-rotating output jack and volume and tone controls with White Speed Knobs powered by full-size 500K Ω potentiometers. The pickup switch is Epiphone’s all-metal 3-way pickup selector with a white toggle cap. An easy-access 9V battery compartment can be found on the back of the guitar.

"SnØfall" comes with “Trivium” proof hardware including nickel 14:1 ratio Deluxe Diecast machine heads with metal Tulip Buttons, Epiphone strap locks, a LockTone Tune-o-matic-7 bridge and Stopbar tailpiece combo, and an Epiphone Heavy-Duty 1/4” output jack with metal jack plate.
