The Zakk Wylde Epiphone Les Paul is yet another Gibson masterpiece.
Billed as "The Ultimate Shred Weapon" there are few who can dispute that in Zakk Wylde's skilled hands, this solid-body guitar truly screams.
If you look closely on the Zakk Wylde Epiphone Les Paul, you'll find that it is fairly traditional, with the most obvious exception being the artwork on the front. If you don't like the bullseye artwork, I suggest taking a pass on this particular guitar, because that really is what makes this guitar so unique. Where else are you going to find a guitar that will literally paint a bullseye on you, wherever you are on stage?
True fans will probably want to swap out the pickups on the Zakk Wylde Epiphone Les Paul, in exchange for a set of active EMG's, as that is what Zakk Wylde himself uses on his guitars. But even if you don't decide to replace the pickups, you'll find the stock gear sounds and responds great, just like you'd expect from Epiphone.
Here's a fairly standard feature set that you'll find on the Zakk Wylde Epiphone Les Paul:
- USA EMG HZ-H4 passive bridge humbucker
- USA EMG HZ-4A passive neck humbucker
