featuring Richie's favorite EMG™ pickups, a Floyd Rose® Tremolo system with locking nut, and a custom gigbag.
"I used it all over the new (Judas Priest) record," Faulkner told Epiphone.com. The tuning was great. The sound was great. I'm taking it out on the road next year when we go out. Right out of the box, man it was a lot of guitar. It was just shocking how good the guitar was and how much guitar was there. The Ebony fretboard and the inlays... everything! The quality of the instrument was mind blowing. And it held up in the studio with my older Gibsons. As I said, it's all over the new record."
Look for the new album, Firepower
, early in 2018 and don't miss Judas Priest on tour next year with Black Star Riders featuring Epiphone's Damon Johnson.
