Zakk Wylde is a one of a kind performer and guitarist and during his tenure as the lead guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne and founding leader of Black Label Society, Zakk has torched many a stage with his unique style and performance.
Winner of multiple Most Valuable Guitarist awards in the metal genre, Zakk combines pure speed shredding with the use of pinch harmonics and chickin pickin to create a wall of sound that s second to none. And like Zakk, his limited edition Epiphone ZV Custom was designed to light up your guitar playing chops.
Designed by Zakk in collaboration with Epiphone, the new ZV Custom combines killer sound with equally killer looks.
With this limited edition guitar, two of the most distinctive guitar shapes morph into one weapon of mass distortion…
With its double cutaway SG upper body allowing for complete fingerboard access and its radical Flying V bottom for extreme attitude, the Epiphone Zakk Wylde ZV Custom guitar has an aggressive look like no other. The Epiphone Zakk Wylde ZV Custom body has been carved from solid mahogany and fitted with a glued in hard maple neck for a deep, rich tone with added brightness and sustain.
To complement these tone woods and provide the kind of high output necessary for Zakk s style, the Epiphone Zakk Wylde ZV Custom is equipped with a set of EMG HZ humbuckers including HZ 4 pickup in the bridge position and HZ 4A pickup in the neck position.
Controlling the two pickups are a bridge pickup volume, a neck pickup volume, and a master tone with 3 way pickup selector.
This combination allows for almost infinite tonal variations. Adding to the sustain of the electric guitar, the Epiphone Zakk Wylde ZV Custom uses Epiphone s patent applied for LockTone Tune O Matic that locks the bridge on the posts and makes string changes a breeze while a string thru body design ensures ultimate string resonance.
Zakk Wylde has always preferred a natural satin finish neck, and the Epiphone Zakk Wylde ZV Custom is no exception. With its SlimTaper neck profile, it s as smooth and as fast as Zakk himself.
Both the neck and the Grover equipped three on a side headstock are bound to create a smooth and finished appearance while Les Paul Custom mother of pearl inlays adorn the headstock and the 12 radius rosewood fingerboard.
Epiphone StrapLocks are standard equipment on this guitar making sure that this beast stays on its leash even under the most extreme stage situations.
To add the final touch to this one of a kind axe, a custom designed, fitted hardshell guitar case with ZV inspired artwork and metal chain handle round out the package.
