Epiphone Ltd Ed Jeff Waters Annihilation II Flying V Outfit
Annihilator may be one of the most interesting metal bands in the world as they have gone through so many styles over the years. With over 30 different band members in just as many years they have a sound that has moved with the times. One thing that has never changed however is Jeff Waters thrash metal guitar style.
So when Epiphone launched the original Annihilation Jeff Waters signature guitars a few years ago it was a popular choice for guitarists looking to built their own metal sound. Now version II is here with an all new look as part of a great value new outfit.
Smooth and Fast Neck
Jeff Waters is a guitarist who like to play fast. That is one of the reasons why the Flying V fits his style so well as it gives him great upper fret access without anything in his way.
To make this guitar faster than all of the models that have come before Epiphone have introduced a new Phenolic fretboard. This synthetic material has a consistency similar to ebony making it one of the slickest choices possible for a fretboard making it great for shred.
Of course with Annihilator being a metal band this guitar needs to be able to handle high gain at any volume. So Epiphone and Jeff after plenty of time testing decided on the Probucker PAF style pickups that have been showing people the world over that Epiphone to make great pickups.
They may not be the highest output pickups but their great high gain response and crispy clear tones makes them perfect for Jeff's tone. Also they react beautifully to a killswitch and coiltap which is a must for any Jeff Waters style player who needs to cover some interesting sounds at high gain.
