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 Floyd Rose tremolo 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 with Floyd Rose Electric Guitar:

    Active pickups generally get a bad rep and I think it's mostly valid. I have some EMGs and they are useless for clean tones, almost annoying, but in the Warhammer it's a different story. I was shocked and in disbelief at the depth the guitar contributed to the pickups. Absolutely no thin sound in this guitar probably because of the thick neck, big heel and set neck construction. You can legitimately use the guitar for clean strumming - that's how good it sounds. Upon hearing it I started grabbing a bunch of single coil guitars to make sure I wasn't delusional - and indeed it stands shoulder to shoulder with all of them. Turning up the gain, this guitar will blow your face off. Very responsive and seering distortion. The chunky neck worried me at first but surprisingly it feels very comfortable and I had no issues shredding on it. Really dig the smooth satin finish on the back of the neck allowing you to move all over the place. The pickup selector is in an interesting place but I found that you get used to it after a while. The guitar is also very comfortable and just feels massive when you're holding it, dwarfing other guitars making them look like childs toys. This is a high quality instrument that demands the best from its player.

    Comments about Wylde Audio Warhammer with Floyd Rose Electric Guitar:

    For the price you just can't beat this guitar. All the guitars in this line use the same woods and pick-up's. Mahogany bodies, Maple necks with Ebony fret boards (neck-through) and Zakk's EMG 81/85 pick up's. The Warhammer is so comfortable and plays so fluid, I fell in love with this guitar the second I played my first chord/riff. I was a life-long Ibanez player and still own my first RG-550 I bought in 1988, nothing I have ever played comes close to the Wylde Audio Warhammer. I will be buying the Odin next for sure. My only complaint on the Warhammer is that there are no hardshell cases for the Warhammer as of yet and that is just a must have to keep this guitar in pristine condition. Go play one, you will fall in love! And yes, it does Djent for all the kids 20 and under. ;)
