Combines two of the most distinctive guitar shapes into one.
With its double-cutaway SG upper body allowing for complete fingerboard access and its radical Flying-V bottom for extreme attitude, the Epiphone Zakk Wylde ZV Custom guitar has an aggressive look like no other. The body is carved from solid mahogany and fitted with a glued-in hard maple neck for a deep, rich tone with added brightness and sustain.
To complement these tone woods and provide the kind of high-output necessary for Zakk's style, the ZV Custom is equipped with a set of EMG-HZ humbuckers including HZ-4 pickup in the bridge position and 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 electric guitar, the ZV Custom uses Epiphone's 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 resonance.
Zakk Wylde has always preferred a natural satin-finish neck, and the Epiphone ZV Custom 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 three-on-a-side headstock are bound to create a smooth and finished appearance while Les Paul Custom mother-of-pearl inlays adorn the headstock and the 12" radius rosewood fingerboard. Epiphone's 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 hardshell guitar case with ZV-inspired artwork and metal chain handle round out the package.
