Overview

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.

Nice low action-Amazing

By Chris

from Lancaster, Ny

I love this guitar, I love how fast the action is and the sound is great. I normally play progressive rock and metal and with the set of EMG's on this paired with a good distortion pedal makes everything sound heavy. The killswitch is a nice bonus, especially if you're a buckethead fan, but with a little practice you can get some great rhythm with that thing. Floyd Rose is always a plus, even though I never use the whammy bar. Neck is really comfortable too, it's very thin, and since I have smaller hands I'm having no difficulty with complex chords. I definitely would recommend this guitar to anyone given the chance, it's just overall well made.
