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.

Gibson killer

By CarstenH

from CPH, Denmark

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

Looking for a FR-equiped Ibanez shredding machine, and having always disliked Epiphone, the possibility of going out of the GC with this was.. close to zero. Comparing it to others guitares for more than 2 hours in the shop this was the best, it even beatede some 1100 $ Gibsons, not just in playability but also in sound. The EMG HZ makes your day in every genre where dist is common. The unpainted neck is sweet, and the close to aircraft carrier weight WOW, I love it! It gives it a long roaring sustain! Everything is good quality, and it keeps the tone. Don't worry about Zakk.. this is a natural born killer of its own.

Sweet Wylde Guitar!

By HHthegtaristHH

from Hazel Green

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

Looking for a gibson tone? How 'bout a sweet look that only epiphone and gibson can offer. This axe is truly a great deal. I am impressed with it. I came into the store and thought that it would be just like the other player models, the exact same sound for a much higher price, but when i plugged it in, what i heard was a great sound. buy this guitar!

This Guitar Rocks

By Rocker11

from Los Angeles, CA

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

Iv had this guitar for about a month now and couldnt be happier. I have a Gibson Les Paul which plays great but this one has a thinner neck and easier for me to play. The Pickups on this thing screech and the look of the guitar is amazing. The pearl block inlays top the whole thing off. This is the best guitar Iv'e ever owned!

Greatest Epiphone Ever

By Sanitariumman24

from Florida

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

This has got to be the greatest guitar I've ever played or owned. I've had it for a year and I can't stop playing. I own three les pauls, two gibsons and this one and I prefer to play the Epiphone not only for dramatic effect but I honestly hear no difference between the three and definitely believe that for the price tag the epiphone version of the Zakk Wylde guitar is the best guitar ever made.

great guitar

By rocker1

from illinois

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

i picked this thing up in the store to play, and instantly loved it. just like everyone said, the pickups on this thing are great. a lot of people are saying that epiphones are bad because they are sorta the little brother to gibson, well i own 2 epiphones and love them to death. this guitar can really rock, the response i got from these pickups was great! the guitar just felt right in my hands to i would recomend this guitar to people even if you arent a wylde fan

SWEET!

By NLTleadguitarist23

from Undisclosed

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

I have resently played this guitar and once i picked it up i couldn't put it down! The EMG pickups in this guitar are awsome! much beter than the reguler humbucking pickups in the epiphones. but the only thing i would have to say is that there is almost no diference between the epiphone and the Gibson..... they both look the same and have the same exact pickups and hardware... i say this is the best epiphone there is out there! get it!

Great , but no difference

By k1ng1992

from great falls, VA

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

I think Zakk Wylde is the best guitarist alive and that his Gibsons are god like. But the epiphone is great too, but with all epiphones, after the $400 mark they all are the same guitar in different shapes. I think it is awesome, but if you play this and a regular epi les paul blindfolded, you couldn't tell them apart. I love this guitar, but if you are not a Zakk Wylde maniac, just get the LP custom AND a really nice amp

very nice

By zakk.attack

from Hopewell, NJ

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

I went in the store looking for this guitar, and as soon as I picked it up and touched the neck I loved it. Im a fan of a nice, thick les paul body and this is exactly that, dont get this if u dont like your guitars heavy, this is not for you. The pickups are nice, but not much different than the normal epiphone pickups, just with a tad more ballsy gain. The paint job is superb, and the bullseye just looks so cool (its more of an ivory color in person). Overall, this is a great guitar for any style of music and a necessity for Zakk fans throughout the world. The only thing I would do is invest in some new pickups.

Best guitar I've ever gotten so far!

By Elliott Chikamura

from Bainbridge Island, WA

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

I recommend this guitar to anyone thats interested in this style of Les Paul. It's really creamy yellowish than the Gibson version which is pure white and has chrome hardware, other than this Epiphone version that has gold hardware. I don't really care about it that much though. Over all This guitar seems really solid, and it feels good. Also it has a nice rich warm clean sound to it.

Go Wylde!

By shred

from ks

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

Beautiful finish, screaming pickups, and an overall brutal sound. I received this guitar for my birthday 2 months ago, and I really don't even see a need to ever upgrade again. When you wack on distortion, it delivers chunky palm-mutes and rockin riffs. Put it on the clean channel, and it is crystal clear and sings to you. The sustain is remarkable, and looking at yourself in the mirror with this thing gives you chills. This guitar really does give you what you paid for.
