With his scorching riffs and remarkable stage presence, Zakk Wylde has earned a reputation as one of heavy metal’s premier lead guitarists. The Custom Shop teamed up with Zakk to create a guitar featuring Zakk’s trademark black and antique white bullseye graphics, powerful EMG humbucking pickups, and raw, unfinished necks.
The Zakk Wylde Les Paul BFG embodies the mammoth tone and over-the-top rock attitude of its name sake, and offers all the equipment necessary to undertake your own scorched-earth attack on your local music scene: from its rough-hewn bookmatched maple top, to its rounded ’50s-spec neck with ebony fingerboard, to its sizzling EMG 81 and 85 humbucking pickups — all approved by the Wylde man himself — the Zakk Wylde Les Paul BFG is primed to deliver the message, in a big way.

A customer says that the 6100 frets are the balls for ripping it up the first thing u do when u buy this guitar is string it up with a set of zakk wylde signature GHS boomers they make this thing roarrrrrr and scream harmonics used with a boss SD 1 overdrive and a ce5 chorus ensemble and the overdrive on the amp this really kicks ass.
About the price of this guitar, other customer says that it isn’t cheap but for what you getting its worth every penny. It’s a good guitar that you can play for heavy metal music.
