for details and read our incredible interview with Matt Heafy
about his new Ltd. Ed. "SnØfall" 6-string
Les Paul Customs.
"I remember mentioning them to (Epiphone President) Jim Rosenberg that maybe we could do these guitars in a different paint job,
" Heafy told Epiphone. "About three months ago, Jim surprised me and said 'Hey I just sent some guitars to your house.' And the next thing I knew, there was this new MKH color --I was totally blown away by it.
We have to do this! So we kept it a secret but at the same time we also recorded the new record with them. I used no other guitars during the sessions--strictly Epiphone MKH models. Then we brought the white guitars on tour so we kind of let the guitar out of the bag really early. I just couldn't wait. When I brought out the white guitars, the kids seemed really stoked at those so that was cool."
