The model consists of:
A bound mahogany body with a maple cap
Three-piece bound maple neck with Adam Jones Custom profile
Reverse-mounted Epiphone ProBucker Custom humbucker in the neck position
Seymour Duncan Distortion pickup at the bridge
As with each limited-edition guitar that’s set to be released, Frazetta: The Berserker comes with a marquee back plate showing the name of the artist and artwork, a headstock featuring an additional design by artist Korin Faught, and a Protector hardshell case. Each work of art featured on the guitar has been selected by Jones himself.
Take a closer look in the video below:
This model follows on from the first Silverburst in the line up, which featured Mark Ryden’s The Veil of Bees. Each model in the collection will be limited to 800 items.
Frazetta, the artist behind this guitar, started his career as a self-taught comic book artist, but his greatest fame has come from the vivid sword-and-sorcery and horror scenes that he creates for book covers, movie posters, and album art, according to Epiphone.
Frazetta: The Berserker is currently priced at $1,299. For further information, go to Epiphone.com.
