Everything that a rock/metal guitar of the 21st century should be.

Marcus Henderson, best known as the heavy-metal guitar player behind a majority of guitar parts in the highly successful video game Guitar Hero, has joined forces with Epiphone to design and create the Apparition signature electric guitar. Marcus says this dream axe is designed to be the very definition of what a 21st century guitar should be: substance with killer style, bulletproof construction, and above everything else, huge tone.

With a shape reminiscent of an Explorer or Futura, the Epiphone Apparition takes guitar design to the extreme and offers a patented All Access heel contour for maximum playability over the whole fretboard. The effortless speed-friendly neck is modeled after the '60s slim-tapered Gibson Les Paul. The real Floyd Rose tremolo with a specially routed back cavity lets you pull-up screaming harmonics. Active EMG-81 and 85 pickups give you all the killer tones you've been dreaming of. A kill button chops the sound up any way your heart desires.

A hardshell case designed specifically for the Marcus Henderson Apparition guitar is also available.
