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 Warhammer electric guitar is part of the first wave of models to come from this new company.

With nordic spirit this awesome model is ready to seize the stage. The Warhammer offers the player one of Zakk's most aggressive 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 Warhammer Electric Guitar:

This is a great guitar. The neck is larger than any I've ever used and feels great. The paint job and body shape is so unique so you'll be guaranteed to stand out from the crowd. Only problem is where the pickup selector is located but not a huge deal.

    Comments about Wylde Audio Warhammer Electric Guitar:

    Firstly, I have played a few of these since they came out and they simply rock for the money. Its great that they solely focused on the essentials of a guitar and didn't bother making you pay for a case, too.

    However, I had to review this because of the guy who claims he's been playing for 30+ years as a guitarist and then goes on to describe his amp. If you ever brag about playing through a Line 6, after having 30+ years to figure out your tone and experience, chances are your opinion is invalid. Just had to say that.

    Don't listen to reviewers, go find the fiddle and pick the dang thing up yourself. Zakk and Schecter did a phenomenal job with this line and you should go rock out on one of these.

      Comments about Wylde Audio Warhammer Electric Guitar:

      Best looking, best sounding, best playing guitar I have ever owned as a 30+ year guitarist. Wylde Audio has hit a major home run with these bad boys!! They sound as mean as they look, just an amazing guitar. I would recommend it to anybody that id thinking about getting one. I use a Line 6 Spider IV 150 watt combo amp and man does this baby ever scream!!! Just give them your money and get one!!! You will not regret it!
