Rock Legend Bjorn Gelotte
Swedish riff master (and former drummer!) of one of the most influential modern metal bands in the world, Björn Gelotte has been using a jet black Les Paul for years, so it was only a matter of time before he teamed up with Epiphone to create his signature model. The melodic death metal band In Flames have sold over two million records worldwide. The new Epiphone Limited Edition 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.
The Epiphone Limited Edition 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 Limited Edition logo in gold on the back. The iconic Les Paul style bell-shaped truss rod cover features Björn Gelotte signature in white.
Gelotte's signature Les Paul features 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.

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. The Limited Edition 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.
