Overview

With scorching riffs and remarkable stage presence, Zakk Wylde has earned his reputation as heavy metal's premier lead guitarist. It's perhaps no surprise that he's now going from making great music to making great guitars at the head of his own company. The Wylde Audio Odin electric guitar is part of the first wave of models to come from this new company.

With nordic spirit this single cutaway is ready to seize the stage. The Odin offers the player one of Zakk's most elegant designs featuring a solid mahogany body with a set 3-piece maple neck. The ebony fretboard has a 24.6 in. scale and 14 in. radius with 22 jumbo frets, just the way Zakk likes it.

From Ozzy Osbourne, Pride and Glory, and now Black Label Society, Zakk has always used EMG active pickups and you'll find a pair onboard in the time-tested combination of EMG 85/81 that has helped define Zakk's sound. Black satin hardware includes Grover tuners and locking tune-o-matic bridge. Case sold separately.

Details about the EMGs onboard
Although the EMG-85 pickup has more measurable output than the 81, its frequency response and string interface are different. The 85 uses two Alnico magnet-loaded coils with a wide aperture to maintain a beefy low end and a fatter top end. Because of a more natural tone, it works great as a rhythm and blues pickup because it has loads of output but isn't muddy. It's a perfect choice as a rhythm pickup in combination with an 81 in the bridge. 

The midrange has great definition and doesn't get foggy or muddy in the rhythm position. The EMG-85 works best if you like the natural distortion that comes from overdriving the front end of your amp. Under any condition, the humbucker responds accurately to your technique. 

The EMG-81 pickup is a high-output pickup designed especially for the lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock 'n' roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you're looking for exceptional qualities in a rock pickup, the EMG-81 is the one. 

Distortion during lead passages is consistent, sustain is long and the breakup fades smoothly. The ceramic magnet in combination with wide aperture steel poles lend a quick attack but the tone stays nice and fat at the same time. Perfect if you're the only guitarist in the band, and need to switch from rhythm to lead and still keep the band moving. Another great thing about the EMG-81 humbucker is it's quiet. If you're playing at really high gain the last thing you need is noise.

    Comments about Wylde Audio Odin Electric Guitar:

    Punchy low end and crystal clear highs. The pickups compliment each other real well, delivering the right balance between bright clean tones and heavy in your face distortion. The neck is a different shape from anything I have ever played but in a good way. It feels more natural in my hand then a Les Paul or any of low profile necks I have played in the past. If I have any feedback to Zakk Wylde it would be to move the rear strap button as that peak gets in the way of attaching any of the straps I tried(strap locks will allow for the clearance to overcome this). Also the volume knob could have a tighter sweep to allow for more specific tone options. Overall I am thrilled! Money well spent.

      This is the best guitar i've owned. Gibsons, Ibanez, Epiphone , Dean. Esp/LTD ..I've owned them all. This Guitar is awesome..Pro grade for sure. I just love the ebony fretboard. The Jumbo frets. The Mahagony body and the EMG's...This guitar screams..If it said Gibson on it you'd pay over $2000.00...

      Comments about Wylde Audio Odin Electric Guitar:

      So, the good...it is a nicely balanced guitar...good tone and nice action straight from the box.

      The bad...these graphics (stickers) are horrible...and comparable to similar makes and models, the price is about $100-$200 high.

      My recommendation is to buy the molasses over the bullseye if you consider buying one.

      Comments about Wylde Audio Odin Electric Guitar:

      the Wylde Audio Odin is a fantastic guitar. It's one of those guitars that will stay in my arsenal for as long as I live. I've been a big Zakk Wylde fan since his first album with Ozzy: No Rest For The Wicked. Some may say I'm biased; I say just play one, they are excellent. I've run it through four 4 hour shows with no technical issues and excellent intonation. Guitar center staff were easy to work with and very friendly.

        Comments about Wylde Audio Odin Electric Guitar:

        I played and bought the Blackout Odin as soon as it was available at my closest Guitar Center. The complaint that I hear most is the fact the the neck is "fat". It is a fat neck, but I love it! In my opinion, the thick neck with smooth, shaved back, and jumbo frets make it a breeze to play....very comfortable. I play primarily in a southern rock/country/classic rock band. This guitar can cover all genres, if you know how to use it. It provides bright, clean cleans and a very punchy chunk in an overdriven amp. The sustain is as good or better than any guitar that I've ever played. Before I got this guitar, my main gigging guitars were my Epiphone Les Paul or Korina V, paired with my Telecaster. (I use the Tele mostly for the chicken' pickin', twangy stuff.) I have primarily played the Odin at every show since I've bought it. I've had no issues with. Also, the paint job is killer. The graphics aren't stickers. The paint job is a combination of gloss and flat black paint. I was skeptical when seeing the pics of it, but they do no justice. The guitar looks amazing in person.
        I would have to suggest that you play one before purchasing. Also, because of the viking horn cut out and beveled butt of the guitar, it does not fit in all standard Les Paul or rectangle cases. But, that's not a complaint or problem for me.
        Great job Zakk and Wylde Audio! I think that you've made a killer axe!

          Awesome guitar. Sounds and plays great. Bought it brand new and i love it. It didnt even need a setup its perfect the way it is. Only complaint is there is no case available and its hard to find a case that will fit it and there is no battery compartment for the 9 volt. Other then that its a solid guitar.

            Comments about Wylde Audio Odin Electric Guitar:

            I went to Guitar Center in Crestwood, Mo to buy a Schecter Hellraiser they had in stock. After I played it, I just wasn't satisfied with the sound and feel. It was just about closing time and I saw the Odin Blackout Bullseye they had on a stand. So I gave it a try. At first I wasn't sure if I liked the feel of the neck, but the more I played it, the more I liked.it. I went ahead and bought the guitar, went home and played it for 5 hours straight. I love how the guitar sounds with the EMG 81 and EMG 85 pickups. I thoroughly love playing this guitar.
