View Full Description
To compliment the tone woods and provide the kind of high-output necessary for Zakks style, The ZV is equipped with a set of EMG-HZ humbuckers including a HZ-4 pickup in the bridge position and a HZ-4A pickup in the neck position. Controlling the two pickups are a Bridge Pickup Volume, a Neck Pickup Volume and a Master Tone with 3-way pickup selector. This combination allows for almost infinite tonal variations. Adding to the sustain of the instrument, the ZV uses Epiphone's new (patent-applied-for) LockTone tune-o-matic that locks the bridge on the posts and makes string changes a breeze while a string-thru body design ensures ultimate string to body vibrations.
Zakk has always preferred a natural, satin-finish neck and the ZV is no exception. With its SlimTaper neck profile, it's as smooth and as fast as Zakk himself. Both the neck and the Grover equipped, six-on-a-side headstock are bound to create a smooth and finished appearance while LP custom mother-of-pearl inlays adorn the headstock and the 12 radius Rosewood fingerboard. Epiphones new StrapLocks are standard equipment making sure that this beast stays on its leash even under the most extreme stage situations. To add the final touch to this one-of-a-kind axe, a custom-designed, fitted hard case with ZV-inspired artwork and metal chain handle round out the package.
From his early work with Ozzy Osbourne, to his seminal playing with Black Label Society, to his distinctive solo outings, Zakk Wylde has distinguished himself as one of the most fiery and furious lead players in all of rock. Now in cooperation with this 5-time Most Valuable Metal Guitarist, Epiphone Guitars of Nashville, TN announces the release of one of the most scorching and vicious guitars ever: the new Zakk Wylde ZV Custom! Originally conceived back in 1998, this new ZV guitar brings all the raw performance and in-your-face presence that exemplifies Zakk Wylde.
