An All-Mahogany Wylde Ride!

It's hard to say what Zakk Wylde is best known for: his outlaw persona, magnificent beard, and ripping guitar solos all compete as his defining feature. Epiphone has created the Zakk Wylde Bullseye Les Paul Custom Plus -- complete with Zakk's signature bullseye paintjob and high-output EMG pickups -- for anyone who wants to be like Wylde without all the hair.

Built for Solid, Full Sound

The start of any great guitar tone comes in the instrument's tonewoods and construction, and Epiphone has made that a priority with the Custom Plus. The body and carved top are made of solid mahogany for a dense and naturally warm sound. Continuing the sound craftsmanship, the hard maple neck of the Custom Plus is glued into the body with TiteBond glue using a mortise and tenon neck joint to promote stability. The back of the neck is satin-finished for smooth playing, and capped with a rosewood fretboard.

Active EMG Pickups for Crushing Tone

Any guitar bearing Zakk Wylde's signature had better come ready to handle high gain and heavy play. The Zakk Wylde Bullseye Les Paul Custom is fitted for the task, with an EMG 81 in the neck and an EMG 85 in the bridge. These humbuckers are both designed with alnico magnets and active circuitry for a hot sound that helps draw rich overdrive out of tube amps. At the same time, the pickups keep your notes sounding clear through just about any unholy distortion pedal you happen to plug into. The enhanced definition and clarity will help you achieve those hair-raising harmonic squeals Wylde hits in his solos.

Special Features Add More Than Just Flair

The gold hardware on the Custom Plus lends a classy touch to an otherwise down-and-dirty rocker, but it offers plenty of functionality too. The Epiphone LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge is paired with a Stopbar tailpiece that helps add ringing sustain. The gold 16:1 ratio Grover machine heads help keep your axe in tune even after wide bends. Zakk Wylde's iconic ivory and black bullseye design covers the entire body, but the 7-layer body binding and 5-layer headstock binding add an extra bit of elegance -- rugged elegance, that is.

Features:

- Mahogany body
- Carved mahogany top
- Hard maple slim C-profile neck is glued into body with mortise and tenon neck joint
- Rosewood fretboard
- EMG 81 neck humbucker pickup
- EMG 85 bridge humbucker pickup
- Custom bullseye finish
- Epiphone LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge
- Stopbar tailpiece
- Grover 16:1 ratio runers
- Volume and tone knobs for each pickup

Try out a Zakk Wylde Les Paul Custom Plus, and see just how much you can make those harmonics squeal.

Product Description

Epiphone's Zakk Wylde Bullseye Les Paul Custom has been the choice of shredders for years. And now, Epiphone and Zakk step it up a notch with the addition of Zakk Wylde EMG-81/85 active humbucker pickups. Powered by a 9-volt battery, these active pickups set the standard for high-output, hard rock/metal tone. But that's not all. Another upgrade on the Bullseye includes a premium ultra-smooth rosewood fingerboard. Plug one in and crank it up!

Same Great Features and Look

Zakk adds his signature "twist" to the classic Les Paul Custom with a solid, unchambered mahogany body with a carved top. For extra bite, Zakk adds a Hard maple neck (as opposed to the more traditional mahogany neck). This neck has an ultra-smooth and fast natural satin finish that allows Zakk (and you) to solo effortlessly. And of course, the neck is glued into the body using TiteBond glue with a traditional mortise and tenon neck joint for rock solid feel, sustain, and tone.

Wylde Electronics

The Zakk Wylde Bullseye Les Paul Custom features EMG active humbucker pickups, specially wound to Zakk's specifications to recreate his hard-edged trademark sound. The neck pickup features a Zakk Wylde EMG-81 while the bridge pickup is a Zakk Wylde EMG-85. Both feature Alnico Magnets.

Loaded with premium add-ons

Other premium features include Epiphone's LockTone Tune-o-matic/StopBar combination for increased sustain and easy string changes, 16:1 ratio Grover machine heads, a 7-layer bound body, a 5-layer bound headstock, and a comfortable single-layer bound fingerboard. Plus, there's gold hardware and Zakk's signature graphics.

As with all Epiphones, the Zakk Wylde Custom Plus Bullseye features Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service.
