Will Exceed Expectations

To create the Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom seven-string solidbody electric guitar, Epiphone collaborated with Trivium guitarist Matt Heafy to create a hard-rockin' Les Paul that's also a heck of a value. You get features normally only found on high-end USA-made guitars, like the deep-set neck joint (glued-in, too!) that gives your tone a fast attack and epic sustain. And the Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom also packs EMG active pickups for a raw, aggressive voice. It's the attention to detail that makes the Epiphone Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom such a great value for any rocker.

Epiphone Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom Seven-string Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Designed in collaboration with Trivium's Matt Heafy
  • Much more than you'd expect at this price
  • This limited edition won't last long
Designed in collaboration with Trivium's Matt Heafy

Triuvim has scored legions of fans since their debut in 2000. Their aggressive sound has Matt Heafy to thank for his furious guitar prowess. Epiphone worked with Matt to create a signature Les Paul he'd be proud of, while also bringing excellent performance at a price affordable for everyone. Take a look at the Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom, and you'll see that you're getting much more than you'd expect for a guitar at this price.

Much more than you'd expect at this price

Epiphone put some serious attention to detail into the Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom. The mahogany neck has a glued-in, deep-set neck joint, which is normally found on much more expensive guitars. It takes longer and is more demanding than other neck joints, but the enhanced sustain and attack speaks for itself. And the binding on the ebony fretboard doesn't just look classy, it lends a smoother feel for better playability, too. Factor in active EMG humbucking pickups, and you'll see that this Epiphone has a ton of mojo going for it.

This limited edition won't last long

Epiphone is only making 1,000 of the Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom guitars. Even if you're not a Trivium fan, you can't deny that it meets a much higher standard than you'd expect from the price. So even if it doesn't become a hot collectors' item in 20 years (and it may!), you'll be glad you took the opportunity to get a rockin' Les Paul at a great price.

Epiphone Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom Seven-string Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Limited edition 7-string signature Les Paul designed with Matt Heafy from Trivium
  • Only 1,000 will be made
  • EMG active humbucking pickups give you rockin', aggressive tone with exceptional dynamics
  • Glued-in, deep-set neck joint transfers vibration better for enhanced sustain and attack
  • Binding on fretboard makes the ebony fretboard feel even faster and smoother
The Epiphone Limited Edition Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom is an unbeatable value!

A simply amazing guitar. This can be used for whatever style of music you want from it, whether it be smooth jazz or High Gain metal. It feels better than any gibson ive ever played, and the short scale isnt an issue no matter how low you tune it. I have very large hands so the neck is perfect for me, and im considering buying another one to use as my primary 6 string

Very Good Instrument

So I had purchased a Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom 6-string and was so impressed that I went and ordered a 7-string as well. The 7-string is a very good guitar and play-ability is great. It is not overly bulky and it is easy to get the feel of the guitar. This is my first 7-string and I was up-to-speed in no time. So here are the best things about it - Feel is great. Neck is very good and intonation is good. (My A string around the 12th fret is a bit off, but a little tweaking on the bridge should take care of this.) The finish is awesome - totally flawless. The weight is good too, not overly heavy. The reason I did not give this a 5 is the tone. It could be this particular guitar, or perhaps even the strings, but the tone on this guitar is a bit dark, it is noticeably darker than the 6-string version. I do have some new strings on the way and that could brighten it up a bit. You can easily adjust your amp and it is not a problem to get the tone you want. Overall, if you want a very good 7-string, I highly recommend this guitar.

needs tlc to bring out potential

This guitar needs pro setup with good strings..including fret sanding/final polishing...otherwise a chunky but balanced huge sounding 7string les paul with a dark moody vibe..needs strap locks and should come with case..
