Talking A Zakk Wylde Les Paul question

OK, so I was in a pawnshop the other day and they had a really nice Zakk Wylde Buzzsaw Les Paul. It was Orange and Black, said Gibson on the headstock and was very heavy (a good thing in my opinion). It is of course fake. The serial does not start with ZW, and the "EMG's" don't have a battery so I know its fake. Here is the question. After searching the net I can fand virtually no reference to an Orange and Black Gibson Buzzsaw Les Paul. They are all Epiphones. Did Gibson actually ever make the orange and black buzzsaw?

Re: A Zakk Wylde Les Paul question

yes gibson did make a couple of custom shop buzzsaws, i played one at the dallas guitar show one year.

I dont think they ever had a full production of the buzzsaw les paul. It looks like they have a ****ty BFG buzz saw and this

I'd be inclined to think it may be of the cheap crappy Chinese clones.

Re: A Zakk Wylde Les Paul question

I am positive you are right Mark. Sorry Jeremy, but I plan on buying it when they get to a reasonable price. I think with the installation of some real EMG's and a full setup it will play great. They spent the time and effort on the paint to make it look great! Are you in any local bands Jeremy? I see bands play almost every weekend!
