Lee Malia is the lead guitarist for Bring Me the Horizon, the hard rocking British quintet that’s breaking new ground with their pioneering combination of metal and electronica. With the release of their latest album Sempiternal and a sold out U.S. tour, Bring Me the Horizon is quickly becoming one of the most talked about bands of the decade. And Lee Malia’s incredible technique and melodic style can be heard on stages around the world on his new Ltd. Ed. Epiphone Signature Les Paul Custom.
The Lee Malia Les Paul Custom was inspired by the Les Paul Artisan, a now-rare 70’s classic. The Lee Malia Les Paul Custom features a Walnut Gloss finish with a Maple top and a Mahogany body cut to the same dimensions of all classic Les Pauls. The body has 7-layer binding on the front and back in Ivory and Black. The black pickguard has 3-layer black and white binding.
For his signature Les Paul, Lee Malia choose a unique combination of Gibson pickups. The neck pickup features a Gibson USA P-94TM single coil pickup (also a favorite of Mr. Les Paul himself). The bridge pickup features a hot-wound Gibson USA 84T-LMTM humbucker, which breaks up easily with any amp. The humbucker also features coil-tapping, which is activated via the bridge pickup’s push/pull volume control. Both pickups are controlled by a standard 3-way all-metal Epiphone white toggle switch with Black Tophat controls with metal inserts and volume and tone for each pickup.
The Ltd. Ed. Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom comes with Epiphone’s world renowned hardware including a gold LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and gold Stopbar tailpiece. Other hardware features include Epiphone’s exclusive non-rotating heavy duty output jack, straplocks, and gold premium die-cast machine heads with metal “tulip” buttons with a 14:1 tuning ratio. An optional hard case is also available.
