The ties between Epiphone and Trivium's Matt Heafy run pretty deep. So much so that for their third custom collaboration, some new tricks have been pulled from the bag for some good ol' fashioned head bangin' heavy metal with modern twists.
For this signature release, Heafy contributes some cutting-edge specs to the Les Paul Custom formula. A mahogany body with a maple cap is weight-relieved for a quick pick up. The mahogany neck is shaped with a SpeedTaper D profile and contoured heel for quick access to higher frets. Primed for your fastest riffage, this Custom is sleek to follow your lead.
For some true mad science at work, you'll have to look to the pickups. Two Fishman Fluence pickups are loaded into the Custom Origins with more tonal options than you might expect. Along with being as tonally versatile as other Fishman Fluence pickups, this Custom has more in store. Each Fishman pickup delivers three distinct tones accessible via push/pull volume and tone pots.
The Alnico neck pickup produces a modern and active high-output Alnico humbucker tone, a clean neck humbucker tone, and a scooped hi-fi single-coil sound. The Ceramic bridge pickup delivers on its tonal selection with a high-output active ceramic humbucker tone, a high-output passive ceramic humbucker tone, and an overwound single-coil tone. Each voice possible from these pickups is highly responsive and energetic. Mix and meld through the tonal variations possible and feel that high-octane adrenaline flow. It's a trip.
Top off this signature model with gold hardware, locking Grover Rotomatic tuners, and classic Les Paul Custom stylings, and it's a fully realized Les Paul Custom as you've always known with pure metal energy.
With a Custom like this, there's little more you'll need to scale whatever metal Everest you're after - sharp and shredding, smooth and subdued.
