Epiphone Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom 7 String awarded “Top Gear”

TopGuitar is proud to announce that the Matt Heafy Les Paul Custom 7 String electric guitar from Epiphone had been reviewed for the November issue of the magazine and received a “Top Gear” editors’ award this month.

Below are some excerpts from a successful review by gear department editor Grzegorz Ufnal, which may serve as reasons for the award:

“Epiphone in cooperation with Matt Heafy created a very interesting instrument which can be a perfect 7-string alternative for LP-style guitar lovers.”

“Epiphone MKH 7 available in retail had to meet one important condition – it had to be exactly the same as the one played by Matt in order to avoid a very common situation, when the endorser plays a ten thousand dollars custom model and you get just a low quality budget signature.The reviewed Epiphone MKH 7 Les Paul Custom is the exact guitar that Matt uses to record new Trivium album.”

“MKH 7 LP Custom is not just another nice guitar full of sweet sounds – it was meant to be and it really is a killer axe!”
