When Epiphone approached Matt Heafy to help produce his signature guitar, it could be none other than his legendary gloss black Custom Les Paul, which has helped define the sound of Trivium over the last 2 decades. Like other Les Paul Customs, this signature model is built around a solid mahogany body and a plain maple top but with the sleek, stylish ebony finish and matching black hardware.
Inspired by Trivium's Matt Heafy, this signature Les Paul Custom packs EMG pickups, Axcess neck heel and a '60s neck for unrivalled tonal performance.
Usually only found on high-end Les Paul models, the Heafy Signature features a deep-set, glued-in Axcess neck joint that not only enhances sustain and tone, but adds to the stability of the guitar overall. Following the tradition of the Les Paul Custom series, the Matt Heafy signature features a 24.75" scale length, 12" radius and 1.68" nut width. A pair of EMG pickups deliver aggressive, in-your-face tone with plenty of dynamics.
Trivium's records have sold over a million copies worldwide. Check out a Trivium performance and you'll see why. The rule books on how-to-play a Les Paul go right out the window when Heafy plugs in. Matt Heafy didn’t wait for permission to change the world. Why should you?
