Re: Zakk´s custom guitar.
I am the proud new owner of the "Glory" guitar that Zakk did over 30 shows with.
That guitar was custom built by Andy Beech who also made guitars for Prince. Incredible luthier. It has a mahogany body with a Birdseye maple top. EMG 85 neck 81 bridge with a fixed bridge (can't intonate.) It is VERY heavy but sounds fantastic. I also own a ZW Gibson Les Paul (along with a Jem and many other guitars) and I think the Glory guitar sounds better than the Les Paul. I am going to try an post some new pics of it on the Black Label website for others to enjoy. I am informed by a local high end music shop that it is worth over $15K as it is a piece of rock history, and there is only one and Zakk played over 30 shows with this guitar.
Here are some specs off of the Black Lable website:
Used by Zakk on the Live & Loud video, many people have been wondering what kind of guitar it actually is; Ive heard Washburn, Dean, Gibson LP, ect... the list goes on. This is a CUSTOM MADE GUITAR by Andy Beech. He also made the Demon V in the Rockstar movie that Zakk, Nick, and Fred co-starred in. The guitar originally didn't have a cut out in it, but one night Zakk took a saw to it because he was having a hard time reaching the higher frets.
