At NAMM 2015 Wylde had made a compelling announcement that he was to announce his own line of guitars. Sporting Zakk's trademark bullseye finish, the Odin Grail Genesis guitar is reminiscent of the guitars played by Zakk during his stint with Ozzy Osbourne. Featuring a maple cap over a bound mahogany body and the axeman's favourite EMG 81/85 pickup combination.

The active EMG 81 bridge unit is commonplace within the metal industry thanks to its powerful output and sustain. It's piercing response strikes the perfect balance with high gain distortion to deliver a sharp and crisp tone, ideal for those guitarists exploring the upper regions of their guitar . The 85 neck humbucker provides the Odin Grail Genesis with masses of low end, adding a tonne of muscle behind those beefy metal style riffs.

The guitars three-piece maple neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard with 24.75" scale length. With this combination of tone woods the guitarist can expect deep and resonant articulation within their playing, giving them a beastly tone, comparable to the man himself.

With its base Gibson Les Paul format the Odin adds a contemporary twist to a well loved classic. 22x jumbo frets afford the player with plenty of room to navigate and execute the perfect blues or metal solo with ease. Its ability to be implemented into any sort of aggressive musical environment Hardware on the guitar includes Tonepros tune-o-matic bridge at one end, and Grover Rotomatic mMchineheads, and a Graph Tech Tusq nut at the other end.

With Wylde's previous guitar's already garnering a considerable cult following, his range of shredtastic guitars grows ever larger and more diverse. The guitars predecessor, the 'Odin' was exceptionally received by both fans and critics alike, leading many to anticipate the release of 2017's new vessel of shred.

To be exclusively previewed NAMM 2017, Zakk Wylde's Odin Grail Genesis is gathering masses of attention. To keep updated with all the latest NAMM 2017 guitar releases check out our NAMM page.
