Ltd. Ed. Björn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit coming this summer!
Epiphone turns up the heat at this year's Musikmesse 2015 conference with a special appearance by In Flames' legendary guitarist, Björn Gelotte. And as a special treat for attendees, Epiphone will preview the new Ltd. Ed. Björn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit coming this Summer 2015.
The Ltd. Ed. Björn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit is the first Epiphone signature model designed by In Flames' power house guitarist (and former drummer!) Björn Gelotte, who in 2004 was voted one of the Top 100 Heavy Metal Guitarists by Guitar World magazine.
Now Björn joins forces with Epiphone to create the stunning new Ltd. Ed. Björn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit featuring a classic Mahogany body with an Ebony gloss finish, 5-layer cream & black binding, an Ebony fingerboard, and a Mahogany neck with a rounded Custom 59 Profile.
And fitting with Björn’s fiery chops, his Epiphone Signature Les Paul is powered by an EMG-85 USA "MetalWorks" active humbucker in the neck position and an EMG-81 USA "MetalWorks" active humbucker in the lead position. The "85" was one of EMG's first pickups and features close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets for a powerful sound with exceptional organic tone and versatility. The EMG-81 is EMG's most famous pickup and the one that started the "active" revolution. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the "81" tone has detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. Used together, the sound can only be described as blistering.
The Ltd. Ed. Björn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit includes a Custom Hard Case with "B.I.G" logo in Gold, a Hand Signed Certificate of Authenticity, and a binder with certificate and photograph.
