The new guitar features a custom Annihilation Red gloss finish designed by Jeff and is powered by Epiphone ProBucker humbucker pickups.

Nashville, TN (November 11, 2015) -- Epiphone, the world’s #1 choice for professional, affordable instruments, presents the new Jeff Waters Annihilation-II Flying-V Outfit –Jeff’s second signature model with Epiphone. The new guitar features a custom Annihilation Red gloss color finish designed by Jeff and is powered by critically acclaimed Epiphone ProBucker humbucker pickups. The new Annihilation-II also comes with a custom Phenolic fingerboard, KillPot switch, Grover Rotomatic machine heads and a custom-fitted gig bag.

Jeff Waters is not only revered for his work with the band Annihilator, but also is known around the world for his guitar clinics, which are standing-room-only events attended by pros and pros-at-heart.

“Jeff’s stunning combination of speed and finesse have made him one of the most admired guitarists of his generation,” said Epiphone President Jim Rosenberg, “And all of us here at Epiphone are Jeff’s biggest fans.”

The new Epiphone Jeff Waters Annihilation-II Flying-V Outfit was designed by Jeff with Epiphone’s luthiers at the “House of Stathopoulo” headquarters in Nashville. The Annihilation-II Flying-V Outfit is an updated version of the first Jeff Waters signature Flying-V that set new standards for speed and sound, and has been Jeff’s go-to guitar for hundreds of concerts and clinics around the world.

“The new Annihilation-II Flying-V Outfit is exactly what I envisioned,” says Jeff Waters. “I wanted a guitar that most hard rock and metal players could afford with killer, versatile pickups, a nice finish, and a setup to play either tight heavy rhythms or fast screaming solos I can proudly put my name on!”

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
