Epiphone Futura

The Epiphone Futura was introduced in 2001 as a part of the E-Series and was included in the USA Collection and is similar in design to the Explorer guitar. In 2008, the Futura resurfaced in the Prophecy Series and then again in 2009 as the Marcus Henderson Apparition. The Prophecy Futura has been discontinued as of 2001. The Marcus Henderson Appartion is still in production today.
