The Epiphone Graveyard Disciple is one of the most unique electric guitars you will find, not just in the Epiphone lineup, but in the entire industry. When Zakk Wylde first approached us with this guitar idea, we knew it was going to be something special, and we also knew immediately who the "goto" guy was for the case. It had to be Jonny Coffin at Coffin Case. Our friends at Premier Guitar interviewed Jonny and here is what he had to say about the Graveyard Disciple case:
It started with Zakk. He had been talking to the guys over at Epiphone for years about this, to their custom guitar guys that he works with, and that turned into them contacting me for the cases for it. Jim Rosenberg contacted me, and then he ended up coming down to the warehouse. He said, "The coffin is really your thing. We want you behind this, so can you do the cases? Let's get this thing going." Then they sent me the guitar. That thing was amazing. I designed the case for it. Zakk wanted a specific logo--a cross logo of his that features his skull on the cross. So we did the prototype case. Everyone loved it, so they went into production last October.
