"I've had the privilege of being able to set foot into the Gibson and Epiphone factories - to meet the staff and owners - the people at both Gibson and Epiphone are some incredibly hard working people.
Everyone down to the people who are hand-wiring pickups; hand-carving out the binding that you see surrounding the Custom shop guitars; men and women covered in sawdust and paint from working tirelessly all day to create some of the most carefully crafted guitars I've ever seen.
The company worldwide has some truly wonderful people who I can call my friends.
I am in full support of Gibson and Epiphone - I have their back and will proudly be backing the company names just as I always have."
-Matt Heafy, Trivium.
