Epiphone Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom Artisan
Time to turn it up a notch (or two... or five)!
British MetalCore band Bring Me The Horizon are embarking on a time in their professional lives where things are really happening! Rocking the USA with a completely sold out tour, and playing gigantic shows in Mexico, it's safe to say that the brutal blend of Thrash Metal and Electronica is a lethal combination that is winning the hearts of the world!
Guitarist, Lee Malia has teamed up with the guys at Epiphone to develop a stomach turning axe that will cope with the demands of his psychotic signature sound and yet, still remains graceful and classic to look at.
Brutal, yet Beautiful...
This screaming solid-bodied monster, is a deviant deceiver, wrongly leading us to believe that something so classic and ornate could sound as pure as it looks. Just plug her in and hear/feel the roar! Loaded with a Gibson USA P-94 Pickup in the neck position and perfectly partnered with a Coiling-Tapping on bridge humbucker, this is one six-string that knows what sound it wants and recognizes how to get it!
Featuring a "1959" round C-Profile Mahogany Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard, you really do get a guitar that plays and feels super-comfortable and offers a rich, organic tone, full of depth and articulation.
Boasting an extremely tasty, natural finish, complimented beautifully with its classy, yet subtle Gold hardware, the Lee Malia Signature Les Paul is not only a thing beauty, but simplicity and detail all at once. The negative space on the guitar's body allows the instrument's composition to breathe, letting the ornate detailing within the fretboard seep effortlessly out of the wood work. Vintage-style volume pots also work in unison to deliver the final touches to a guitar that looks decades older than its time, yet still offers a ferocious bite that modern players will adore.
Take a look now and see for yourself, let the Lee Malia Signature Les Paul do all the talking, just sit and soak it up if you think you're hard enough! Rock hands at the ready! \m/
What Lee Malia says about his Epiphone Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom Artisan Guitar:
"I just wanted something that looks really classy. Something that I think appeals to anyone who plays any genre of music. They could pick up this guitar and not necessarily know that I play in a metal band. It's cool--it's got the P-94 in the rhythm position and the humbucker has coil tapping. The clean setting sounds insanely nice and then the bridge pickup sounds amazing on its own. So I wanted to make something that you couldn't pinpoint to a metal artist. Anyone who sees it will say: that's a nice guitar. And it's based a lot on a Gibson Artisan from the 70s. I always liked how that guitar looks so I riffed off of that." - Lee Maila (epiphone.com)
