Gibson Zakk Wylde Les Paul

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.

Reviews:

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.

Gibson SG Zoot Suit (Limited Edition)

Gibson SG Zoot Suit

The new Gibson Zoot Suit SG guitar is the ultimate for stage style and playability. The word “Zoot” is jazz slang meaning extravagant style to which this guitar encapsulates. At first glance, one might think that the unique coloration of the Zoot Suit guitar is simply a clever paint scheme. Incredibly though, there is no paint used on the guitar.

The Zoot Suit
The body of the Zoot Suit features a brand new body built with multiple birch wood laminate pieces (each one approximately .075” thick), each dyed with a different color then compressed and bonded together to form one solid block of wood. No paint is used. Each body is given two coats of satin nitrocellulose lacquer.

By reorienting the dyed laminates opposite from the body, you can view the pin-stripe color pattern through relief designs that have been machined out of the head veneers, which also allows maximum strength to the overall structure of the neck.

Featuring a brand new body built with multiple birch wood laminate, each laminate piece is dyed with a different color then compressed and bonded together to form one solid block of wood. Two coats of satin lacquer are then applied to provide a smooth finish and also help protect the body from any damage.

Unique
Standard sg features. The features are less in the mechanics thaqnin the body which is unique and gorgeous. Plays well,good action and tone.Im sure it will outlive me. It is a tad heavy if they could fix that with some routing like they did on the les paul.
