Premier signature Les Paul by legendary guitarist of In Flames

Epiphone welcomes one of the greatest metal guitarists of all time, Björn Gelotte of In Flames, to the Epiphone family of signature artists with the premier of the Ltd. Ed. Björn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit. Designed exclusively by the Swedish riff master (and former drummer!) of In Flames, Björn Gelotte, the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Björn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit is a classic Les Paul design with some personal touches that reflect Gelotte's incredible attention to detail that have made him one of the most influential metal guitarists of his generation.

Ltd. Ed. Björn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit: The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Björn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit features a classic Les Paul profile with a Mahogany body finished in a deep Ebony gloss and trimmed with 5-layer cream and black binding. Gelotte chose a Mahogany neck that's rounded to a Custom '59 profile and topped with a beautiful Ebony fingerboard. Like all great Les Pauls, the neck is glued to the body with a deep set neck joint. The Les Paul-standard style 24.75" scale neck has pearloid block inlays, a standard 1.68" nut, and an Epiphone Les Paul headstock with In Flames' iconic "Jester" inlay on the front and a Ltd. Ed. logo in gold on the back. The iconic Les Paul style bell-shaped truss rod cover features Björn Gelotte signature in white.

EMG Pickups: It takes a dynamic pickup that can match Björn Gelotte fiery chops and for his debut signature Les Paul, Gelotte chose legendary EMG pickups with an EMG-85 USA "MetalWorks" active humbucker in the neck position and an EMG-81 USA "MetalWorks" active humbucker in the bridge position. The "85" was one of EMG's first custom pickups and features close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets for a powerful sound with exceptional organic tone and versatility. The EMG-81 USA "MetalWorks" active humbucker in the lead position is perhaps EMG's most famous pickup and the one that started the "active" revolution. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone of the "81" has detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut, and fluid sustain. Used together, the sound blistering and unmistakable.

Classic Les Paul Controls: Both EMG pickups are powered by standard Les Paul-style volume and tone controls using Black "Top Hat" control knobs and Epiphone's patented all-metal 3-way Pickup Selector switch with a cream toggle cap. Each pickup is powered by a 9-volt battery located in an EZ-access compartment on the back of the body.

Rock Solid Hardware: The Ltd. Ed. Björn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit features Epiphone's famous LockTone™ "Nashville-Style" Tune-o-matic bridge with a Stopbar tailpiece along with Grover® Roto-matic™ machine heads with an 18:1 tuning ratio for quick, intuitive and no-slip tuning.

Limited Lifetime Guarantee: Each Ltd. Ed. Björn Gelotte Les Paul Custom Outfit includes a Custom Hard Case with a "B.I.G" logo in gold, a Hand Signed Certificate of Authenticity, binder, and photograph.

Good I have a ebony Standard then :thumb:

Jookes aside, looks like a very nice guitar with some of the right mods already in place for those who dont bother modding themselves!

It needs these knobs that I fitted to my Tac they look so much better. The standard knobs are the same as the Tac Matsumoto DC.

Looks good, and the ebony fretboard makes it a true Custom in my opinion. The EMGs does not though, but I guess they are cool for metal, and part of making it a Björn Gelotte signature.
