The APEX200 is a seven-string solid body electric guitar model sold by Ibanez. It is a signature model of American guitarist James 'Munky' Shaffer, known for his work with the nu metal band Korn, and a part of Munky's APEX series. It is also part of the high-end Prestige line.
A more affordable version, the APEX20 was released the same year. The design of both models is inspired by a Universe series guitar which Shaffer used in the early days of Korn.
The APEX200 has an RG series-style alder body with DiMarzio Blaze pickups and a Lo- Pro Edge 7 tremolo bridge. It sports a dark gray finish with natural headstock, black pickguard and red pickups.
