Description

Details

The Epiphone Limited Edition Monster Mayday Les Paul Standard Outfit Electric Guitar in Mayday Monster Red, has been designed in collaboration with and is the signature model of "Monster" (Wen Shang Yi), who is the founder and lead guitarist of Taiwanese legends, Mayday. Having led the band since 1997, and gaining four Golden Melody Awards for Best Band in the process, Mayday is known throughout China as the "King of Concert", and when you see him lay down his silky solos, you instantly understand why. Epiphone have done Mayday the honour of crafting a truly outstanding model, and included a range of premium accessories to complete this awesome package.

Les Paul Standard Body

The guitar is shaped to the instantly recognisable single-cutaway Les Paul body shape, with a mahogany back to give it that signature warmth with generous sustain. The mid to low-end charge is tempered by an AAA flame maple veneer top, which is finished in a striking Mayday Monster red. The maple and mahogany partnership is a long standing combination that offers the warmth of the mahogany with a soothing mid to low-end energy, whilst the maple cuts through with articulation across the upper mids and high frequencies.

Deep-Set, Glued-In Neck

Paired with the body is a traditional mahogany neck, which is connected using a "deep-set" glued-in fit to maximise resonant transfer from the strings and neck to the body and pickups. The neck is shaped to the 1960 slimtaper D-profile, which guarantees a substantial feel in the hand without being cumbersome; giving you something to hold on to as you glide along effortlessly.

Married to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium-jumbo frets that are adorned with trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style. The 12-inch fingerboard radius is the perfect shape to execute smooth string bends on, perfect for a blues guitarist such as Monster. Thanks to the single-cutaway body profile it is very comfortable

Gibson Burstbucker Zebra-Coils

To deliver his smooth blues' tones, Monster has equipped his signature model with Gibson's Burstbucker humbuckers with Zebra-coils, which offer as close a representation of the coveted late '50s hand-wound "PAF" humbuckers. In the neck position is a Burstbucker-2, and a slightly hotter Burstbucker-3 resides in the bridge position. The Burstbuckers are equipped with unpolished magnets and non-potted coils to match the first generation of humbuckers.

Control comes in the form of individual volume pots for each pickup, individual tone controls for each pickup, and Epiphone all-metal 3-way toggle switch that allows you to select either pickup independently or both simultaneously. Simply put, if you're hoping to achieve smooth, creamy tones, then these beauties are more than happy to oblige - you won't be disappointed!

Gig-Ready Hardware

Fitted to the headstock are Epiphone Deluxe tuning machines with 18:1 gear ratio, which uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision - a must to ensure stability for smooth string bends. Fitted to the body is a LockTone tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, creating a seamless connection between the strings and body to optimise intonation and reinforce sustain.

Included Accessories

The Epiphone Limited Edition Monster Mayday Les Paul Standard Outfit Electric Guitar in Mayday Monster Red comes with a custom "Mayday Monster" hardshell case, along with a hand-signed certificate of authenticity, Epiphone straplocks, and Epiphone's limited lifetime warranty.
