Epiphone Ltd Ed Lee Malia RD Custom

Hot on the heels of the recently launched Lee Malia Explorer, Epi has rolled out another interesting RD shape signature model.

Using the same woods as the other Lee Malia models, this one has mahogany body/neck and a maple cap.

That’s a really classy headstock.
