Corey Beaulieu plays guitar for metal outfit Trivium. Along with co-guitarist Matt Heafy, Beaulieu is responsible for the bands crushing tone and blistering leads. As you may expect, Beaulieu's rig is one befitting a true metal head.
In the early days of Trivium Beaulieu predominantly used Jackson guitars. These included a Jackson DX10D and Jackson KV-2 USA's. Beaulieu can be seen playing his Jackson KV-2 with Blue Ghost Flames graphics. He would also occasionally be seen playing a B.C. Rich Warlock and Ibanez RG270DX Blue fitted with EMG-81 and EMG-85 pickups.
In 2005, Beaulieu took up an endorsement with Dean Guitars. Throughout this period he played variety of Dean guitars, including his own Dean Corey Beaulieu Signature seven string and Corey Beaulieu Signature CBV. He also plays a number of Dean Dime Razorback V's including the Dean Dime Razorback V "Blood Angel" which made its first appearance on the 2007 Trivium tour. This Razorback V is metallic red with the Trivium circle logo placed between the bridge and neck pickups and is also fitted with a Floyd Rose Locking Tremolo and a Seymour Duncan Dimebucker. More recently, Beaulieu parted with Dean Guitars and although he has still been spotted playing his Dean guitars live, he can be seen with a Jackson V in the Throes of Perdition video.
In terms of pickups, Beaulieu also has his own custom model called "The Ascension", also made by Dean Guitars. Other pickups he has/does use include Seymour Duncan Blackouts, Seymour Duncan '59 (in the neck position), Seymour Duncan Dimebucker (in the bridge position), and EMG's. He's also been known to use Bill Lawrence pickups, most probably in one or more of his Dean Dime Razorback's.
