Overview

Maybe you've lusted after Gibson's Zakk Wylde signature model but lacked the cash to buy one. Well, here's the Epiphone Zakk Wylde Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar, a more affordable alternative. It's equipped with sizzling USA EMG HZ- H4 and H4A humbuckers, glorious gold hardware, mahogany body wood, hard maple set neck with rosewood fretboard, and Zakk's signature bull's-eye paint job. The LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and LockTone stopbar tailpiece add more sustain and make string changing a breeze.

EMG HZ-H4
Combining the power of active EMG-81 with the soul of a passive PAF, the tone is well balanced, with tight bass, glassy mids, and crunchy highs. These great tonal features are achieved by utilizing over wound coils loaded with ceramic bar magnets, all fully shielded for minimal noise. In the bridge position, the H4 shines with excellent range, responsiveness and sweet harmonics, perfect for a big rock or heavy modern sound.


EMG HZ-H4A

Endowed with warmth, body and clarity, the H4A is a very versatile pickup and is perfect for everything from blues to rock to metal. The tone is very well-balanced, with solid bass, pronounced mids, and fat highs. These great tonal features are achieved by utilizing vintage wound coils loaded with Alnico V bar magnets, all fully shielded for minimal noise. The H4A in the neck position, with its cousin, the H4, offers a perfect balance of tones. The H4A shines with superb clarity, full body, and delicate responsiveness which will suit almost any style or mood.

This was the best buy i have ever made. This guitar is one of the best.The neck is smooth so its easy to play fast and the paint job is awsome.But with the gold harwear i would clean it when your done playing because it gets dirty quick.The pick-ups on here were awesome though i did by the Zakk Wylde EMG 81 85 set and those are just awesome on there. This is my favorite guitar and own and probably will stay as my favorite

I recently bought this epiphone, and I was not that impressed. The neck was not contoured well, the tuners are very low quality, and the paint job is not good. It's sound is good, but the pre-installed emgs were installed poorly. I could not get it repaired without paying more than 100 dollars for a problem I got from the start. I have a problem with the neck pick-up volume control. Turning down the volume knob on the neck pick up did nothing, and the bridge pu had tone problems. When playing, the guitar would not stay in tune, bends more than 1/2 step up would knock the 1st three strings out of tune. NO MATTER how many times I replaced the strings I had the same problem with strings being knocked out of tuning. The truss rod adjustment doesn't work, and I have a hard time getting pinch harmonics. This is a good guitar, it is just that there are so many problems with it. I would not recommend paying for something of this quality. Either pay less for another epiphone with EMGs or just go with an Gibson.

GREAT BLISTERING GUITAR!

By Ilikenachos

from Cypress, California

Comments about Epiphone Zakk Wylde Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar Bulls-Eye:

This is a guitar worth while because it offers such a tone like a Gibson or a PRS. This is a well made guitar with GREAT pickups. The EMG hunbuckers really make this guitar sing and it lets the Harmonics Scream. So if you wanna have a Gut Bustin' Guitar choose this and you won't be disapointed.

Comments about Epiphone Zakk Wylde Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar Bulls-Eye:

Man, I went to guitar center for the first time and I tried a lot of guitars but this one caught my eye and as soon as I plugged it in, I was blown away, the neck was smooth as butter, the tuners aren't hard to tune and the strings stay in tune, the bridge was beautiful and I love the paint job on this, the EMG's do most of the work making this guitar fit for a god, I love this guitar, it's worth the money

Kicks major butt!

By StarMatt

from Columbus, Ohio

Comments about Epiphone Zakk Wylde Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar Bulls-Eye:

If you had told me 3 months ago I would own a Les Paul, I would have laughed at you. "Les Paul's aren't metal!", I'd always say to my friends. But yesterday I went to guitar center. I tried the Jackson V's, the Dean Dimebag's and the B.C. Rich Warlocks, but nothing was giving me a tone I really liked. Then I plugged this thing in. I swear it was like a revelation. The sound, the tone this thing gave off was amazing. I even tried it on the guitar center's poorer amps just to make sure. It didn't matter what amp it was on the tone still KILLED. This guitar is awesome, and if you are even considering purchasing it, I say do it!

Why would anyone get the gibson?

By Guy

from Woodland hills, Ca

Comments about Epiphone Zakk Wylde Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar Bulls-Eye:

okay, this guitar is incredible. the feel of it is just phenominal the pickups are greatt,, just as good as the 81/85's and the neck is extremely smooth. i enjoyed playing this guitar so alot just because it felt and sounded amazing. the only down side for me is that i dislike the paintjob but still gave it a 5-star because alot of people prefer that. It isn't too heavy but isn't extremely light as well. I highly recommend this guitar for any Zakk Wylde fans or anyone who likes good tone for any type of music.

Zakk Wylde Epiphone

By Brandon

from Palmdale, CA

Comments about Epiphone Zakk Wylde Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar Bulls-Eye:

Two words: MUST BUY!!!! This guitar is incredible. You may think since its not the Gibson version that it might be terrible, but this guitar is better than any Gibson I've ever played. The only thing that I had to change was the pickups. They give you EMG HZ's and I had to get the EMG 81/85 set on it.With that setup and my Marshall tube amp I am set for life!

Amazing Zakk Wylde Guitar

By Mason

from Durham, NC

Comments about Epiphone Zakk Wylde Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar Bulls-Eye:

This guitar is this best I have played. I'm a big zakk wylde fan and this guitar comes very close to his. I have two dean razorbacks an ibanez iceman and a bc rich warlock and none of them come close to this guitar! You can get harmonics so easily on this guitar and the sound is unbeatable its has crystal clear clean tones and maddening distortion. I highly recommend this guitar to any one looking for a good metal guitar.
