    Zzounds has these on sale. The bottle opener is stainless steel, surrounded by
    - Mahogany Body
    - Rounded, Custom '59 Profile Mahogany Neck
    - Ebony Fingerboard with Pearloid "Block" Inlays
    - EMG-81/85 USA "Metalworks" Active Pickups
    Includes case.
    I have no idea who Bjorn Gelotte is. Before last night I would have guessed it was an IKEA sofa or a coffee flavor at Starbucks. I do wonder if he really needs to open a Carnegie Porter from the back of his Les Paul?
    If I wanted a white LPC for metal, though, this would be it.
    cheers!

    I have to admit, it took me a couple of minutes to find the bottle opener. I think it's a pretty dumb idea, but whatever. :confused:

    I actually know who Björn Gelotte is (In Flames was my favourite band at some point in my teen years) and this guitar looks killer...but a bottle opener on a Les Paul seems like a stupid idea.

    The one in the Zzounds advert has apparently been used.

    Exactly what I thought would happen...
    Bottle opener on a beat up Tele...ok if you are into it. But on a shiny white, blingy LP?

    It is Gelotte's 2nd signature model. This is what he said about his first one:
    By the way: In contrast to other artists, he actually plays his signature Epiphone extensively on record and live. I think it even became his main guitar so he could retire his old Gibson it was modeled after.

    Guitarists can have interesting behaviors. I think this is an interesting, humorous signature.

    Zakk Wylde is a business partner with him, using the bottle caps themselves.

    ETSG wisdom screams:

    "Don't open yer beer bottles on yer SG!
    Open them on Biddlin's Les Paul."


    Me, I prefer Grolsch beer anyway. It's good beer,
    and you get a free strap keeper with every bottle.
    No prying or scratching your guitar. Just open the
    bottle like a gen-a-man.
