Bjorn Gelotte of Swedish metal titans In Flames has long been a Les Paul Custom player. Now he's teamed up with Epiphone for a killer signature instrument designed with relentless riffage in mind!
Fiery Sound, Smooth Feel
Boasting double EMG pickups disguised with gold covers, this instrument has a classic look but with a punchy contemporary sound. The active pickups allow you to harness a ripping metal tone, and the mahogany body and neck combination ensure that you'll have all of the low-end-friendly range that you desire!
The rounded '59 neck profile adds to the classic-meets-modern feel of this unique instrument. You'll notice the timeless playability of a vintage Les Paul, but with the endless sustain and crystal clear resonance of a hot-rodded monster!
The white Les Paul Custom with gold hardware has earned its place in guitar history. Gelotte's signature model takes this design, and tweaks it for the modern metaller.
Typical gold plates conceal powerful EMG Metalworks pickups, while gold top hat knobs evoke vintage themes. Epiphone have even adorned this model with the In Flames 'Jester' logo on the headstock - a little touch that adds to the unique character of this guitar!
Top it off with a bottle opener built in to the back, and you've got a metal-ready machine that might just go undetected at a classic rock gig!
