EMG Active Pickups
Matt Heafy’s Ltd. Ed. Snofall Les Paul Custom 6 and 7-string models feature his favorite active EMG pickups in custom white. In the lead position is an EMG-81, one of the most popular metal pickups ever made. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the EMG-81 is designed for detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. In the neck position is an EMG-85 featuring Alnico-V magnets for 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. 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 O 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.
