New Toy - -ZAKK LP !!

Just pick this one up - it's a 2001, low serial number in great shape.
It's a real hot-rod!





A nice change from my normal purchases!




I can't wait till the next gig!

That logo on the back of the headstock needs a disco ball over it

Nice axe man, congrats.

Re: New Toy - -ZAKK LP !!

Unfinished neck is super-fast. Mirror-ball optional. I like this LP better than my '06 R-9 flametop. The EMG's give sustain like Steve's sustainer (well, almost)...with the TS-808 on 1/2 into the JCM900 full stack it's utterly amazing - - and NOW I know how Zakk pulls off those pinch harmonics.
Yes, anyone can do pinch harmonics, but the way Zakk sounds when he does them is because of these EMG's. I also didn't know that the wiring harness,volume & Tone pots are special for the EMG's. To switch pickups (but who would?) you would need to change out all the electronics.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this model. I might even keep it awhile! :^)

Re: New Toy - -ZAKK LP !!

I want one!

I've got such gas at the moment for the Epi Zakk wylde (standard or camo) or a Strat.

Shame my wallet doesn't agree with me......

Re: New Toy - -ZAKK LP !!

i love LPs congrats on the score...... again! i have a cheap epi version and i have to say i dont like playing it, let me rephrase that, i love trying to play it, i find it hard after playing my nez or music man.... it just seems like hard work, but i think i look cooler, maybe its hand size also i dont have big hands i think that helps a bit on these.

stunning model mate and nice low figure im only a few behind ya... bout 4 million that dont include the gibsons either..... one day... come on 6 numbers!

I really wish I never sold mine, I think I might try and get another next year some time. That unfinished neck is amazing and plays so fast with ease.

Re: New Toy - -ZAKK LP !!

Sweet!!!!!!!!

I still have not "bonded" with my Standard due to the feel of the finished neck. I am tempted to the ZW treatment to mine.

The unfinished neck looks very appealing indeed.
