Ibanez APEX20 Munky Signature 20th Anniversary - Black
Special Order

Munky's Axe

Steve Vai's Universe launched the 7-string solidbody electric guitar revolution, but it was Korn's 1994 debut album that took it to the people. Factory down-tuned a full step, Korn axeman James "Munky" Shaffer's signature Ibanez APEX20 means business. Your fingers will fly on the lightning-fast 3-piece maple neck, and the contoured basswood body is so lightweight and comfortable that you'll want to rock all night. Two DiMarzio Blaze pickups put a gargantuan tone arsenal under your command, while a Gibraltar Standard II-7 bridge holds down the fort. Bottom line? Ibanez's APEX20 Munky Signature is a killer guitar.

Ibanez APEX20 Munky Signature Solidbody Electric Guitar Features at a Glance:
  • Your fingers will fly on this super-fast APEX 3-piece maple neck
  • It doesn't get more metal than a killer set of DiMarzio pickups
  • Fixed-bridge stability and amazing playability
Your fingers will fly on this super-fast APEX 3-piece maple neck

One of Ibanez's fastest necks, the APEX 3-piece on the APEX20 is an absolute pleasure to play. This slim and super-comfortable neck lets you pull off lighting-fast runs and arpeggios with ease, but it still gives you the substance you need for fretting chords. From the first time you wrap your hand around the this neck, you'll know you've got a 7-string guitar that was built for no-holds-barred performance.

It doesn't get more metal than a killer set of DiMarzio pickups

The Ibanez APEX20 is fitted with two passive DiMarzio Blaze pickups that will take your tone to a whole new level. Featuring a single-coil in the neck position and a humbucker at the bridge, this set lets you deploy everything from spanky cleans to full shred with a massive dynamic range many modern metal guitars can't manage. At Sweetwater, we really like this setup. We think you will, too.

Fixed-bridge stability and amazing playability

While you may expect to see a vibrato tailpiece on a metal-flavored Ibanez, the limited edition APEX20 sports a fixed bridge - a dream come true if you prefer a hardtail axe. This Gibraltar Standard II-7 bridge has an ultra-low profile that gives you outstanding comfort with the exceptional stability and reliability you can only get from a fixed bridge. If you play heavy music but prefer not to mess with a floating bridge, then the Ibanez APEX20 Munky Signature was made just for you.

Ibanez APEX20 Munky Signature Solidbody Electric Guitar Features at a Glance:
  • Contoured basswood body is so lightweight and comfortable, you'll want to rock all night
  • Your fingers will fly on the lightning-fast APEX 3-piece maple neck
  • DiMarzio Blaze pickups (neck single-coil, bridge humbucker) deliver a massive tonal range
  • Gibraltar Standard II-7 bridge provides amazing comfort and optimal string-vibration transfer
  • Factory down-tuned a full step
