Epiphone Lee Malia Les Paul Custom

Epiphone is proud to announce the Ltd. Ed. Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom. Inspired by the '70s era vintage classic Les Paul Artisan, the new Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom features a totally unique pickup combo of a Gibson P-94 in the rhythm position and a Gibson 84T-LMTM humbucker with coil tapping in the bridge position. Lee Malia is the lead guitarist for Bring Me the Horizon, the hard rocking British quintet that's breaking new ground with their pioneering combination of metal and electronica. With the release of their latest album Sempiternal and a sold out U.S. tour, Bring Me the Horizon is quickly becoming one of the most talked about bands of the decade. And Lee Malia's incredible technique and melodic style can be heard on stages around the world on his new Limited Edition Epiphone Signature Les Paul Custom.

The Lee Malia Les Paul Custom was inspired by the Les Paul Artisan, a now-rare 70's classic. The Lee Malia Les Paul Custom features a Walnut Gloss finish with a Maple top and a Mahogany body cut to the same dimensions of all classic Les Pauls. The body has 7-layer binding on the front and back in Ivory and Black. The black pickguard has 3-layer black and white binding.

For his signature Les Paul, Lee Malia choose a unique combination of Gibson pickups. The neck pickup features a Gibson USA P-94TM single coil pickup (also a favorite of Mr. Les Paul himself). The bridge pickup features a hot-wound Gibson USA 84T-LMTM humbucker, which breaks up easily with any amp. The humbucker also features coil-tapping, which is activated via the bridge pickup's push/pull volume control. Both pickups are controlled by a standard 3-way all-metal Epiphone white toggle switch with Black Tophat controls with metal inserts and volume and tone for each pickup.

The Limited Edition Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom comes with Epiphone's world renowned hardware including a gold LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and gold Stopbar tailpiece. Other hardware features include Epiphone's exclusive non-rotating heavy duty output jack, straplocks, and gold premium die-cast machine heads with metal "tulip" buttons with a 14:1 tuning ratio. An optional hard case is also available.

zZounds Expert Review
"Every time I whip up a product pick for our monthly selections, you may have noticed I say that "I'm a sucker for _____." This month, amongst many other months, I'm sucker for walnut finishes, especially on SG's and LP's. You may see that this one shares some of the design choices of an LP Artisan from back in the day. I can dig it. Pretty solid feeling Tulip Epi branded tuners, and rad looking, old school inlays on the board. I got a chance to noodle about on this one over at NAMM and I'm glad we finally have this in for pre-ordering on our page now cause I totally want one after you fine folks get yours. Players that dig on the classic and traditional Les Paul necks will love this guy, it's got a comfortable taper, without going in to baseball bat thickness like you'd find on a 50's style LP. I know a lot of folks are fond of changing out pickups on Epi's to suit their needs and I'll have you know that this one comes with a pretty rad bucker/P90 configuration out of the box. These are both Gibby pickups, and a pretty unique stock configuration as well. The 84 in the bridge is a overwound Alnico V and for comparison's sake, it sounds like it is a pretty modern pickup voice that is designed to work best with the gritty, yet mellow P94 in the neck. The bucker is coil-tappable too. What more do you want? I have no idea who Mr. Malia is, but I've gotta say he made some pretty solid choices with the Epi custom shop folks on the electronics and this slick looking walnut body. We're doing pre-orders, so you've gotta try this sleeper LP before this Limited Edition model is gone."

5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Exceptional guitar. One of Epiphone's best! "
Overall: When Epiphone announced the Lee Malia Custom Artisan, I knew it was going to be special. Having owned this guitar for the past couple weeks, my assumptions were correct. This guitar is a work of art. Not only is it beautiful, it sounds amazing. The Gibson USA P94 and 84T pickup combination creates a vast pallette of tones, from bright crystal clear cleans to face-melting growls. The guitar is pretty heavy. Mine is easily 10+ lbs. It was setup perfectly out of the box. My only complaint about this guitar are the stock Epiphone strap locks are junk. Throw them out and buy a set of gold Schaller Security locks. It's a minor and relatively cheap and simple fix and does not take anything away from the breathtaking quality and beauty of this guitar. I highly recommend getting one. It's the last Les Paul you'll ever need.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "This guitar will change your view of Epiphone!"
Overall: I got mine over a year ago, Probably right before it was officially released. This has got to be one of my favorite guitars of the 50+ in my collection! (That includes about 20 different Gibson's, Fenders, Ibanez, Dean USA etc... I surely was NOT expecting anything near this caliber from Epiphone! First, It is absolutely stunning to look at in person, I know the inlays are not "real" Pearl, But they sure do look real! The craftsmanship is FLAWLESS! Neck is fast and straight with zero fret buzz, Fret bar ends are smooth as silk! (Must have been hand filed) And the sounds you can coax out of this baby are very pleasing! (Thanks to Gibson USA pick-ups) The only negative I can think of is that it's a CRIME to sell a guitar this nice without a case! I have pre-ordered the 100th anniv, Epi LP in Natural because I know if it's even close to this one it will be a winner! Though I highly doubt it will beat this. In fact, If your planning on purchasing the 100th anniv. and you do not have one of these yet, CANCEL the 100th and buy this one instead! It's 100.00 less and I promise it will beat it! (And you will LOVE it!) I did not buy mine from zZounds because as I said, I got mine before anyone else had them to sell. I will say, I am seriously considering buying a 2nd one (And a case for it) from zZounds just to have one to play and one to preserve. Try to find one of the Gibson Artisian LP's from the 70's in mint condition.....Damn near impossible! This offering from Epiphone is the closest your going to get to that Gibson Artisian from the past. Take it from a player of 43 years (Now a collector and player) This is one axe you do NOT want to miss! Or years from now when you see one you will wish you had bought one. I cannot see many folks (If any) parting with theirs in the future (They are just that GOOD!) I highly recommend this guitar and cannot say enough about it!
