In Flames are one of the most influential modern metal bands around at the moment. With Bjorn Gelotte as one of the lead songwritiers and guitarists pushing the band in all kinds of new directions Epiphone have decided to make him a limited run signature model based on his famous black Gibson Les Paul.
Bjorn has been using a jet black Les Paul with gold hardware for years now so it was only a matter of time until this guitar came around. Visually this guitar is extremely similar do a 2 pickup black beauty. From the thick mahogany body wrapped with cream and black 5 layer binding to the stunning mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard every part of this guitar not only looks but feels great as well.
Ready To Rock Hardware
Tuning stability and hot hardware are must haves on any guitar designed for metal players. With heavy handed players behind the guitars that need to hit the strings with strong attack to get the right sound you need a guitar that is as structurally sound as possible. That is why on this guitar you have a simple but stable setup of a hardtail bridge and high quality machine heads that will make sure you will not fall out of tune.
EMG pickups have become an industry standard in the metal world with every kind of player picking them up and putting them in their guitars. Their consistently hot tones make them perfect for metal and since it is what Bjorn uses they had to be in this guitar. Loaded with EMG 81 and 85 MetalWorks pickups in a stunning gold finish really brings the guitar together making it an astonishing rocking machine.
Limited Edition Accessories
As this is a limited edition model Epiphone couldn't leave you without a high quality hardcase and certificate of authenticity. Signed off with Bjorn's B.I.G logo the hard case is a must have for keeping your guitar protected when you are on the move.
