In a tribute to his scorching riffs and unique stage presence, Gibson honors one of heavy metal’s premier lead guitarists with the Custom Shop aged Zakk Wylde Signature Les Paul Electric Guitar. It features Wylde’s trademark black-and-antique-white bull’s-eye graphics; hugely powerful EMG humbucking pickups (one 81 and one 85); and an oiled, raw mapl neck. The Les Paul body has a 1-piece mahog back with carved maple top, an ebon fretboard with pearl block inlay, gold hardware including an engraved gold truss-rod cover with Zakk Wylde logo. Multi-ply binding on top, back, neck, and headstock. The guitar includes a hardshell case with the Custom Shop Zakk Wylde Les Paul Guitar.
This aged edition is an extreme rarity. One of only 50 to be made by the Gibson Custom Shop, it features every chip and dent you’d find on Zakk’s legedary #1 Les Paul custom. Received as a graduation gift from his parents, the guitar was lost to him for years after being stolen. A fan discovered it in a Texas pawn shop and arranged it’s return. Even the gold hardware is tarnished and pitted to look just like the original. You’ll find it plays with the same power and tone as Zakk Wylde’s amazing axe as well. A true collector’s item.
