IK Multimedia's MODO BASS

After a highly publicised relationship with Dean fizzled out a few months ago, Trivium’s Matt Heafy has officially returned to Gibson.

Matt’s been playing his Gibsons live since the split with Dean, but nothing official had been said until a Gibson signing session was announced for Musikmesse.

Here’s a little video of Matt presenting guitars to winners of a Gibson contest at Musikmesse.

  1. Just thinking here, but don’t Trivium usually use 7 stringed guitar? So Heafy’s using a Les Paul, do they have a 7 stringed LP?

  2. I believe they started using 7-strings on their latest CD, but I’m not sure if Gibson will make 7-strings for them. I think Corey is using 7-string Jacksons at the moment for those songs, and maybe Matt is just tuning down.

  3. When I got to meet Trivium in Feb I asked Matt what his plan was for a 7 string since he was switching back to Gibson, he told me "Well for now I'll use my old Dean ML 7 string but I'm getting a custom 7 string Explorer made from Gibson, its going to be white and yeah yeah I know everyone is going to give me shit for it, oh hes coping Hetfield blah blah blah" Hah yeah I can't wait to see Matts 7 string Explorer, hope they make an Epiphone Sig model of that one…

  4. Matt has an EPIPHONE 7 string Flying V and a GIBSON 7 string Explorer. He uses LP's for older songs.

    And they used 7 strings on The Crusade as well.
