Now the Epiphone Adam Jones Julie Heffernan Les Paul Custom has leaked on a Canadian Epiphone dealer site. Revealing the next Art Collection model in the limited edition run series. Just over a week ago, the Korin Faught model was leaked and now we have confirmation of the latest model in the run.
Adam Jones Julie Heffernan
Adam Jones Les Paul Custom Art Collection: Julie Heffernan’s “Study For Self Portrait with Rose Skirt and a Mouse” could well be the third release in the series. Following on from Mark Ryden’s The Veil of Bees and Frank Frazetta’s The Berserker.
The Antique Silverburst The Epiphone Adam Jones Art Collection consists of seven Silverburst Les Paul Custom models, each featuring reproductions of different works of fine art on the back.
Adam curated the featured artwork, and additional artwork, designed by artist Korin Faught, adorns the back of the headstock of each model.
I reviewed the original Veil of Bees model and you can see that article here.
Five artists are featured in the collection, and only 800 guitars of each model will be produced. This unprecedented limited-edition collection brings Adam’s love of art and music together.
This model from the Adam Jones Les Paul Custom Art Collection features Julie Heffernan’s “Study For Self Portrait with Rose Skirt and a Mouse” on the back. It has a bound mahogany body with a maple cap, a three-piece bound maple neck with an Adam Jones Custom profile, and an ebony fretboard.
It is equipped with a reverse-mounted Epiphone ProBuckerTM Custom humbucker in the neck position and a Seymour Duncan Distortion in the bridge; both are wired to CTS potentiometers and Orange Drop capacitors.
Finally, a Marquee back plate with the artist’s name and the name of the artwork is also included.
Finished in Antique Silverburst as a homage to Adam’s beloved original Silverbust 1979 Gibson Les Paul Custom.
It comes in an Epiphone Protector hardshell case included in the price.
At the time of writing, there is no official information on the Epiphone website. I would expect something around NAMM in April though.
