The APEX2 features an RG-style mahogany body bolted to a maple and walnut neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and no inlays except an APEX script on the 12th fret. Components include dual DiMarzio PAF 7 humbucking pickups and a Tone Pros 7 fixed bridge with a through-body string arrangement.

The APEX2 was discontinued after 2013.
