From his early work with Ozzy Osbourne, to his seminal playing with Black Label Society, to his distinctive solo outings, Zakk Wylde has distinguished himself as one of the most fiery and furious lead players in all of rock. the Gibson Custom Shop has released a new Inspired By model that’s as scorching and vicious as its namesake’s chops.
Blending classic Gibson touches with all the tools required to crank out the fiercest forms of contemporary rock, this could be the ultimate weapon for axemeisters looking to hack out anything from metal to grunge to the most eviscerating shred styles. Appearing like some rebel offspring of two of the most radical body shapes in rock history — the Flying V and the Gibson SG the Zakk Wylde SGV carries everything a player needs to get the job done. Dual EMG 81 & 85 active humbucking pickups in the bridge and neck positions yield a sizzling output with unprecedented fidelity, dual Volume controls and a master Tone provide easy balancing of your individual voice, and a Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge and V tailpiece with through-body stringing give enhanced sustain and resonance, along with easy intonation. These no-hold-barred appointments are partnered by a heavy, aggressive look, too. The solid-mahogany body is finished in ebony with an white "Bulls-eye" graphic, while the glued-in three-piece maple neck carries a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with Custom-grade pearl block inlays and Les Paul Custom-styled headstock veneer.
This has a great feel and nice tone. The slim tapered neck is straight and the action is Low. The pickups are loud and powerful. This is a collectors piece which has seen very minor playwear since its exception. Not suprising considering its rarity. Excellent condition, it's Suitable for a not so fussy collector and would make a great addition to your arsenal. Close inspection will reveal small impressions to the rear gloss finish and a very tiny impression to the underside of the headstock. Otherwise she is a clean example that reveals very little in the way play. Frets are clean and show no wear. Comes in the original and cool gibson case with Zakk Signed Certificate and all other bits of case candy. Included is also the original reciept for $5500 and Zakk wylde signature strap.
