Description

Details

The Epiphone Limited Edition Bjorn Gelotte Signature Les Paul Custom electric guitar in ebony, delivers one of metal's all-time greatest guitar player's very own model at an affordable price for all to take advantage of. Joining legendary Swedish metallers In Flames as their drummer in 1995, Gelotte switched to his current position as riff monster following the exit of a band mate, and in March 2004, was ranked #70 out of 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Guitarists of all time by Guitar World. Such a distinguished musician deserves the best, and Epiphone delivered.

Not only do you get the benefit of Epiphone's consistent high standards of quality with regard to the construction of this exceptional model, but premium appointments are present throughout to make this a model not to be missed. Whether you're a bedroom dreamer, an amateur enthusiast who likes to rock out with friends, or are a seasoned professional who needs a trustworthy workhorse that really sings, this is a model that sounds amazing, plays like a dream, looks absolutely stunning, and is sure to satisfy even the most discerning guitarist's needs.

Classic Les Paul Body

The Bjorn Gelotte Signature Les Paul Custom is built using a solid, unchambered piece of mahogany with a carved top. This gives the guitar a hearty warmth that permeates the slab-like tone produced by this beauty, delivering an unabashed, aggressive, full-frontal attack with lengthy sustain. The body has been treated to a visually commanding ebony finish, with 5-ply cream/black binding around the top, back and headstock, as well as a 5-layer black/white pickguard to prevent unwanted scrapes from affecting the glorious finish.

Custom neck profile

The glued, set-in mahogany neck is designed to maximise sustain and tone. Gelotte prefers a mahogany neck, and favours a thicker, rounded custom '59 profile due to the added grip he is able to get during performances. Married to the neck is a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with medium-jumbo sized frets. Single-ply cream binding has been applied to encourage a smooth playing feel as you make transitions between frets, whilst the 12-inch radius is perfect for executing smooth string bends. The adjustable truss rod enables you to adjust the position to suit your playing style, whilst the truss rod cover features Bjorn's signature in white.

EMG USA "Metalworks" active humbuckers

The pickup compliment in this model comprises a pair of EMG USA "Metalworks" 81 and 85 active humbuckers - fitted in the neck and bridge positions respectively. The 81 offers blistering lead tones with a razor-sharp attack and awesome sustain, allowing you to wail and squeal to your heart's content. The 85 offers greater emphasis on a mid to low-end tonal output, making it excellent for chugging riffs and focused rhythm tones with plenty of beefy mids. Each pickup has an individual volume and tone knob, whilst a three-way pickup selector allows you to select either or both pickups - a simple control setup that can be used to create a huge range of sonic possibilities. Just don't forget that as they're active humbuckers, a 9-volt battery is required to keep them powered up. In keeping with the hardware finish, both pickups have smooth gold covers, which create a striking visual contrast against the ebony finish.

Gig-ready hardware

To match the solid construction and sublime tonal offerings, Epiphone have installed gold Grover Roto-matics with a super-strong 18:1 gear ratio - perfect for upholding drop-tunings with thicker string gauges, etc. Fitted to the body is a LockTone "Nashville-style" Tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, a partnership that provides a seamless connection between the strings and body to optimises intonation and sustain. Everything about this guitar feels reassuringly solid, allowing you to get on with playing as hard as you like, safe in the knowledge that the guitar can keep up with you every step of the way.

Unique Appointments

As well as the truss rod cover signature, Epiphone have included tasteful appointments that make this model just a little more special. The headstock features the Epiphone logo in pearloid, with the In Flames "Jester" inlay, also in pearloid. The headstock reverse features the "Epiphone Limited Edition" logo in gold. Each model is supplied with a custom hard case with the "B.I.G" logo in gold with truss rod wrench and user manual. Completing the package is a Certificate of Authenticity, which is hand-signed by the man himself that combines in binder with photograph, an Epiphone poster and Epiphone limited lifetime warranty.
