Fast, Comfortable Neck Built for Shredding

Unique side markers featuring Doyle's "Bat" graphic are embedded in the neck for easy visibility. An ultraslim D-shaped profile gives the neck an effortless, shred-ready feel. The Annihilator's neck construction and appointments equip you with an instrument tailored to Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein's aggressive playing style.

Custom Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein handmade pickups

Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein designed the Annihilator's handmade pickups to capture his signature high-output tone. The custom bridge pickup delivers tight low end, searing upper mids and defined highs that cut through dense mixes. The neck pickup provides warmer, fuller tones for expressive lead playing. With a five-way switch, you can select the bridge pickup, neck pickup or combine them in series for maximum output.

Full FU Tone Titanium Tremolo System

The Annihilator features a recessed FU Tone tremolo system that allows you to manipulate pitch and add expression to your playing. Made of lightweight titanium, this tremolo system is durable yet responsive. With the included tremsetter, you can lock the tremolo arm to disable pitch manipulation or unlock it for full floating action. The FU Tone's titanium components and steel knife-edge mounting provide exceptional tuning stability for consistent performance.
