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 bound ebony fretboard has a 24.6 in. scale and 14 in. radius with 22 extra 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. Gold 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.

As an independent recording musician, I need a guitar that has great sustain and noticeable tone differences between the pickup selections without sounding muddy. This guitar has a thick neck which is perfect for people like me with big hands and long fingers. The weight is a little heavier than my previous guitars (ESP's) but that's alright. Can't go wrong with having the Zakk Wylde signature series guitar like this from his own guitar company with the ESP pickups configurations like this.

CRIMSON GOLD BUZZSAW!!!

By STEVE

from MASSACHUSETTS

See all my reviews

Comments about Wylde Audio Odin Grail Electric Guitar:

LOVE ZAKK WYLDE'S LINE OF GUITARS. THE CRIMSON GOLD BUZZSAW IS MY FAV. TOP QUALITY, MAHOGANY BODY, FLAME MAPLE CAP, MAPLE 3 PIECE NECK! MULTI PLY BINDING, QUALITY PICKUPS. IT ROCKS! THE NECK IS BIGGER IN THICKNESS BUT NOT MUCH MORE THAN A BRIAN MAY GUITAR WHICH I OWN. THE NECK IS ALSO SATIN NOT GLOSS...SO ITS NICE AND SMOOTH AND FAST. SOME MAY NOT LIKE A BIGGER NECK PROFILE BUT ONCE YA PLAY IT, IT MAKES MY JEM SEEM WAY TOO SMALL AND CHILDLIKE. MY HAND DOESN'T GET AS FATIGUED AND SORE WITH THIS NECK AS WITH THE THIN WIZARD TYPE. ITS A GREAT AXE, YES MAYBE NOT FOR EVERYONE BUT ...FOR MANY! GO ZAKK!!!!! LOOKING FORWARD TO HIS AMP LINE TOO

AWESOME AXE

By MR DX

from MA

Comments about Wylde Audio Odin Grail Electric Guitar:

THIS GUITAR IS GREAT. I OWN A COUPLE OF HIS EPIPHONE MODELS,....NEVER GOT A CHANCE TO GET THE EPI BUZZSAW. THIS GUITAR IS EVEN BETTER ......ON SOME OF THE OTHER ODIN MODELS, AKA W/ OTHER FINISHES I SEE SOME CRY ABOUT THE STRAP BUTTONS....ITS NO PROBLEM. I BOUGHT THE GOLD SCHALLER LOCKING STRAP BUTTON FOR THE NECK AREA, AND BOUGHT A MUSHROOM TOP GOLD STAP BUTTON (BIGGER THAN NORMAL STRAP BUTTON) FOR THE LOWER BOUT. IT MAKES IT SAFE. ITS NOT GOIN ANYWHERE.

    Comments about Wylde Audio Odin Grail Electric Guitar:

    Wylde Audio have introduced their version of a single cut, arch top and it is a winner! They've actually, honestly made some amazing, well-designed innovations that will win you over. I own over 20 guitars and 2 of them are a Les Paul Custom and Studio so let's get that out of the way. I decided to give this thing a try at my local Guitar Center and ended up walking out with the thing. This is a heavy guitar, but very well balanced. High end hardware, real mother of pearl inlay, ebony fretboard and great action. Most of the Guitar Center pics never do a guitar justice with the whitewashy background, but trust me... this thing is beautiful. Especially when the light hits the hardware and MoP inlay just right. Mmm. Anyway, the real improvement here is the neck: fatter, thicker, and wider than a LP but with the 14" radius, and 2" scale combined with jumbo frets: you can and will bend effortlessly and with great comfort. I have little girly hands and had no problems with this neck. You feel like you are really gripping a two handed axe or something and it feels good. Zakk Wylde really did his homework making this neck profile. I just can't stress how much I enjoy playing this. enough. Wylde Audio has made a real winner here and deserve accolades. :) You should really give this thing a shot.

    INCREDIBLE!!!!

    By DimeWylde

    from Midland, MI

    Comments about Wylde Audio Odin Grail Electric Guitar:

    I just received my Gangrene Odin Grail this morning and I am just floored by the looks, feel, quality, playability and sound of this masterpiece. This guitar is better than I was expecting. I never played on the Odin Grail before ordering this one. I did play the Redrum Odin and I fell hard in love with the fat beafy neck. I really liked the guitar but I thought it was a little lightweight for me. I like an axe with some weight to it. The Odin Grail has everything I wanted in the Redrum Odin. Anyone looking for an INCREDIBLE guitar, y'all need to check out the Odin Grail line up. Everything on this is top notch. I will definitely be buying more in the future. So a huge thanks to the man Zakk Wylde and friends for these beauties. Go getcha pull!!!

    Comments about Wylde Audio Odin Grail Electric Guitar:

    Purchases from the Times Square GC. I have Gibson but this piece plays great. My large hands/fingers fit much better on The Odin Grail than my Paul's. I find I want yo play the Odin more than my Paul's/SGs/Vs/. It's perfect right from box. Schecter did s great job. It's flawless. EMGs are tight and pack a punch. Cleans are good. It's top heavy. Be prepared. It dives big time. Get a strap to match it. YouTube "how to make Odin Grail". That's this one.

          This guitar plays fantastic. Very high quality look and feel to the guitar. The odin genesis is the iconic Wylde setup. Technical specs are spot on for rock and metal, however, the guitar is very versatile.

            Comments about Wylde Audio Odin Grail Electric Guitar:

            Let me start by saying I'm an experienced player for over 30 years. I build custom hand wired tube amps, so I'm very meticulous, sometimes to a fault. I love Les Pauls, so these guitars were not my thing when they came out. The only reason I bought one was to have it signed by Zakk, but after playing it, I am amazed at how close it is to an LP Custom. Awesome tone, the neck joint is really good construction. Very impressed with the quality of this thing for the money. Unlike the newer LP Customs, these are built with genuine ebony fingerboards, like the old LP Customs. This is one Guitar that the "Made in Korea" stamp doesn't really matter, it is really put together just as good as any LP.
