Zakk Wylde Epiphone Les Paul

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
  • Gold hardware
  • Mahogany body wood
  • Hard maple set neck with rosewood fretboard
  • 24-3/4" scale
  • 1-11/16" nut width
  • Neck joint set at 16th fret
  • Zakk's signature bull's-eye paint job
  • Antique ivory finish
  • Body, neck, and headsdtock binding
  • LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece

Zakk Wylde Talks About Some Of His Guitars

Here is a video of Zakk Wylde talking about four of his famous guitars. Most of Zakk Wylde's guitars are costume made. The first guitar he is talking about is called the Dean guitar. Zakk Wylde designed this guitar and his friends over at dean, who make great guitars, pump this guitar out for him. You'll see that this guitar has a very cool, unique design. The second guitar is the Fiddle Dime. He designed this guitar in memory of his brother Dimebag. At the back of the guitar you'll be able to see some sort of signature which is a request by Dime bag. The 3rd guitar is made by Zakk Wylde's friends over at Gibson company. It is a V-shape guitar that has a jack input at the upper right corner of the guitar. The toggle switch is also located near the jack input. The 4th guitar that Zakk Wylde talks about is just like any other ordinary electric guitar. He just picked this guitar somewhere in Manhattan and it cost around $41.

These are some of Zakk Wyldes amazing guitars. But just because his guitars look amazing, it doesn't mean that it is what makes his guitar playing fantastic. Zakk Wylde is a very talented guitarist and along with his unique and great guitars, his performances are off the hook.
