Product Description

Epiphone and Jeff Waters unite to create the ultimate guitar for massive, ear pounding destruction. The Jeff Waters Annihilation V starts a solid mahogany neck joined to a solid mahogany body using a traditional deep-set, handed fitted, glued-in flying V neck-joint with a D-profile. On the SlimTaper neck sits a 24-fret phenolic fingerboard that allows a full two octaves of range mixed with an smooth and extremely durable surface.

Jeff Waters talks about his Annihilation-V custom designed by Epiphone:


Pure Annihilation

Epiphone has a long history of supplying some of the greatest guitarists of all time with the instrument they need to excel. And that history continues with the Annihilation V made in cooperation with legendary guitarist, Jeff Waters. Prestigiously ranked at #3 in Joel Mclver's 2009 book The 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists, Jeff and his band Annihilator have been shredding audiences worldwide for years and now he's ready to take it up a notch with what he calls The Ultimate Metal Guitar!

Features

- Mahogany body and mahogany set neck
- 24 Fret Phenolic fingerboard
- Pickup Gibson USA JWR and JWT humbuckers
- Black hardware with Grover tuners

Tone to the Bone

Designed specifically for Jeff by Epiphone engineers and made by Gibson U.S.A.'s world-famous pickup division, the Annihilation-V features custom JWT (Jeff Waters Treble) and JWR (Jeff Waters Rhythm) 4-wire humbuckers in the bridge and neck positions respectively. Overwound and featuring a Ceramic-8 magnet, the JWT bridge humbucker can deliver the right combination of crunch and growl without ever losing it's enhanced lows and crystal clear highs.

The JWR neck pickup features an Alnico-II magnet that provides vintage tone with great sustain and clarity along with the right combination of power and warmth. Together, the two pickps offer the perfect combination of crunch and clean.

Electronics

Controlling the two perfectly matched humbuckers is a set of simple yet powerful controls that offer incredible versatility. The master volume control is also a push/pull control allowing you to tap into each coil of the two humbuckers for a brighter, single-coil sound while keeping them noise-free. The 3-way toggle in combination with the coil-tapping allows you up to 6 different tonal combinations ranging from a one single-coil to full-on humbucker assault. Add to that, an easy to use momentary killbutton that cuts off the output for added effects and you've got a guitar that's ready for anything. Loaded with premium add-ons!

Other upgrades include Grover 14:1 ratio tuners, Epiphone StrapLocks, Epiphone LockTone tune-o-matic/stopbar combination, Annihilator Devil inlay on the 12th fret and Jeff's signature on the back of the headstock. And, like every Epiphone, it features their Limited Lifetime warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 day Gibson Customer Service.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Epi Water's Flying V"
Overall: I ordered it on a Thursday and received it on Tuesday. This axe came flawless. It is a blast to play and my jam buddies couldn't seem to put it down either. Thanks to Epiphone and Jeff Water's for creating a sick axe. And thanks to zZounds.com for making it possible for a poor person like myself to afford this guitar.
