Media Release — For this year’s SDCC, AFX is proud to debut something perfect for those wanting to bring together their love of comics and music – the Peavey McFarlane Spider-Man Rockmaster Electric Guitar, featuring Spider-Man #1 artwork from comics legend Todd McFarlane.
This San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Guitar is only available from the Action Figure Xpress SDCC booth (#3345), and is limited to only 100 numbered pieces worldwide. The Rockmaster Guitar is a full-size electric guitar with a high-gloss finish on a basswood body which provides excellent balance and tone. The maple neck and rosewood fretboard enable fast rhythm and lead playing. Each guitar comes with a strap and amplifier cord and is priced at $275.
Want to make sure someone else doesn’t end up strumming this rare and inspired instrument instead of you? Action Figure Xpress is now accepting pre-orders for the guitar via 1-866-SHOP-AFX (746-7239) or at www.shopafx.com. Because the guitar is only available at the convention, those pre-ordering are asked to pick up their guitar from 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 12 through 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 15 at the booth.
Attendees at SDCC can also enter to win a free Peavey McFarlane Spider-Man Rockmaster Electric Guitar at the Diamond PREVIEWS booth (#2401), and comic book specialty store retailers will have a chance to win one of these rare guitars by filling out a brief survey or attending the Diamond Retailer Appreciation Lunch. Stop by booth #2401 for more details.
