Iron Maiden Signature Series, yes they thought of the Heavy rockers for a change with the Dave Murray’s Stratocaster, based on his own ’57 Stratocaster, previously owned by late, great Free guitarist Paul Kossoff. The Dave Murray Stratocaster guitar boasts a supercharged HSH configuration—a DiMarzio® PAF® 36th Anniversary DP103 neck pickup, a DiMarzio® Super Distortion® DP100 bridge pickup and a Fender vintage-style middle pickup. Other features include a lacquer finish, and a flatter soft V-shaped neck with satin back.

Epiphone will also be releasing another new signature model,
the Marcus Henderson Apparition, featuring an Original Floyd rose, the infamous EMG pickups pair 81 & 85, straplocks. Marcus is probably best known for being the heavy-metal guitar player behind the majority of the guitar parts in the megahit video game series “Guitar Hero”.


Along the models cited above, Epiphone will introduce the new professional series Thunderbird PROs, available in both 4 and 5 string versions featuring a seven-piece neck with through-body construction for amazing sustain and tone.

Well all we can say is that 2009 is the 50th birthday of the 59 Les Paul, so you won’t be disappointed!
