Previously only available in South-East Asia and China, this stunning Les Paul is now finally available across PMT UK stores nationwide. Renowned for his blues-based solos and scorching guitar riffs with his band Mayday, Wen Shang Yi (also known as 'Monster') has been honoured with a signature Epiphone model based on the original Gibson Custom Shop run.
Debut signature model produced in conjunction with “Monster”, lead guitarist of the hit alternative rock group Mayday from Taiwan.
In line with the Epiphone Les Paul Standard spec, the Monster Mayday Signature features a solid mahogany body for trademark LP tone and sustain. However, flip it over and it is adorned with a stunning AAA flamed maple top, with the rich hues brought to life by the custom Red finish.
There’s no better match-up than a Les Paul with humbuckers and just like the originals, each Gibson USA Burstbucker humbucker has its own individual “voice” so players can develop their own personal tone and style. The bridge pickup features a covered, gold 'bucker, with the neck pickup leaving the Zebra Coils exposed for the world to see. A unique 'Unicorn' logo adornes the middle of the body, while Monster's signature inlays the headstock in gold.
Featuring a pair of Gibson USA Burstbucker pickups, a 1960 Slimtaper D-profile neck and a AAA Flame Maple top, this stunning LP is a prime example of Epiphone's quality craftsmanship and attention to detail.
