Metal band Trivium and Dean Guitars present a new series of signature models released for the band's guitarists, Matt Heafy and Corey Beaulieu.
The CBV Corey Beaulieu Signature model is based upon the classic "V" design and features a few custom cosmetic refinements. The classic red body is solid mahogany, and the tail of the ultra sharp "V" design has scalloped beveled cutouts adorned with classic pin striping. The Trivium circle logo is positioned between the pickups.
The neck is a 24 fret, 24.75" scale, 12" radius neck, featuring a rosewood fingerboard, medium jumbo frets, Trivium "T" logo inlay at the 12th fret, pearl dot fret markers on the fingerboard. The set-neck design provides a smooth transition to the upper registers. The utlra-sharp Dean V headstock mirrors the body with custom scallops and pinstriping, and Grover black 14:1 tuners.
The bridge position is loaded with a Dean USA Custom Shop CD Ascension humbucker, hand wound to Corey's taste in the Dean USA Custom Shop. It provides massively heavy tones with highly articulated clarity, perfect for high speed runs and pinch harmonics. The neck pickup is a standard Dean. They're controlled by one master volume and one three-way pickup switch.
