The Epiphone Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom 7 string is a totally killer take on the world famous Les Paul Custom. Designed in collaboration with Matt Heafy this guitar represent his approach to 7-string guitar. The standard code on "how-to-play a Les Paul" is completely jettisoned when Heafy plugs in and sets things to destroy. His revolutionary use of an LP Custom seven-string has been a breakthrough in contemporary metal and hard rock.

This Les Paul Custom features a traditional sounding all black Ebony gloss finish, but it's pretty different in appearance to the regular Ebony Custom. Like every Les Paul should this 7-string Ltd. Ed. Custom features a solid mahogany body with a plain maple veneer top. It has Epi's venerated '60's SlimTaper 'D' profile neck, glued in-place with a deep set Axcess neck joint, for amazing upper fret access. It also has a 12" radius ebony 'board with pearloid block inlays. It has a 1 7/8" nut, that gives you the perfect 7-string spacing. 

Matt Heafy asked for black active EMG pickups in his signature guitar, so that's what these instruments have. These are some of the most popular pick-ups for metal guitars ever designed and produced. In this case they're an EMG-707 in the neck position and an EMG 81-7 in the lead or bridge position. The 81-7 is EMG's king high output pickup, designed especially for 7-string lead guitarists. The EMG 81-7 excels at high volume overdrive. The EMG-707 has long been the standard-7-string guitar pickup since its introduction in 2001. The 707 features Alnico V magnets with wide aperture coils, which beef up the low B tone while offering a more responsive and super tight overall sound. An easy-access 9V battery compartment can be found on the back of each guitar.
