Epiphone Bjorn Gelotte Les Paul Custom

Epiphone welcomes one of the greatest metal guitarists of all time, Bjoern Gelotte of In Flames, to the Epiphone family of signature artists with the premier of the Limited Edition Designed exclusively by the Swedish riff master (and former drummer!) of In Flames, Bjoern Gelotte, the Epiphone Limited Edition Bjoern 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.

Limited Edition Bjoern Gelotte Les Paul Custom:

The Epiphone Limited Edition Bjoern 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 Limited Edition logo in gold on the back. The iconic Les Paul style bell-shaped truss rod cover features Bjoern Gelotte signature in white.

EMG Pickups:

It takes a dynamic pickup that can match Bjoern 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 Limited Edition Bjoern 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.

In Flames guitarist Bjorn Gelotte runs through his artist series Les Paul:

"awesome guitar"
Overall: With the meaty 59' neck, solid mahogany body, and EMG pickups, this guitar sounds and plays amazing. It has the feel of a Gibson Les Paul traditional, and i sincerely mean that because i have one and played them back to back. The only thing really missing is the sweet smell of a nitro finish. The one i received is flawless, both the case and the guitar. The action was set up perfect, although, i did change the strings before actually playing. This guitar is worth every penny. Hats off to Bjorn Gelotte and Epiphone for creating the wonderful guitar.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "The Jotun - Sleeping beauty"
Sound: Beautiful, rich deep Rhythm that glows with the EMG set! Sharp, snappy and bright when set to the Treble selection. Feature: PROS - Beautiful, timeless finish/color. EMG Metalworks set. Incredible Value for the money. A high-end Gibson Les Paul custom hidden under the Epiphone banner.CONS - Out of the box Fret buzz. Needs a setup badly. Not a great product for the novice player who expects a right-out-of-the-box experience. Ease of Use: Once setup plays like a high-end Gibson Les paul. Quality: Exceptional quality for fit and finish. Value: Again, once this guitar is given a setup it is incredible value for the money. A wonderful limited edition axe. Manufacturer Support: n/a The Wow Factor: The gold hardware mixed with the bone white finish and overall classic stylings make this guitar a must have for those players that want to bring class to their Metal-outlook. Overall: I was very excited for this one due to many factors which include a killer set of “MetalWorks” EMG pickups, a beautiful Bone white finish and an overall timeless look. Once my Jotun reached me I cracked open the case and fired her up. That is where the big fat reality hammer hit me. Fret buzz, terrible action, and a faulty Rhythm/Treble switch only made things all the more disappointing. BUT, I was determined to give this beauty a setup and see if she could shine and boy was I right! After some tweaks and tinkering the Jotun came to life and now she plays simply incredible. I feel bad for the novice customer that buys one of these in the crap condition that I received mine and they write off the guitar as just a sub-par brand that isn't going to live up to Gibson. I've played a lot of LPs over the years and this Jotun with a bit of love and attention? played just as well as some of the most expensive LPs available. Epiphone - PLEASE don't sully this beauty due to a crap setup. I give this axe a very serious 9 out of 10 once setup.
Style of Music: Classical, Metal, Rock, Anything that catches my ear.

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "Play as you pay! Brilliant. Most musicians don't have a lot of extra cash on hand. I am disabled and on a low fixed income. If it wasn't for zZounds there is NO way I would have the gear I have today. Plus you carry the best and most PRO level gear around. Most other stores only carry gear for the beginner and people that play for a hobby. That's fine but what about the pros? zZounds does it all very well." - Customer on November 25, 2018
