Zakk's New Vertigo Les Paul
Posted 4/25/2012 2:38:00 PM

Ever the cool guitarist Zakk Wylde and Gibson have come out with a new signature guitar - The Virtigo Les Paul. A friend of mine called it a signature version of a signature version guitar LOL He might just be right.

It's a new take on Zakk's popular bullseye graphic except this time Gibson calls it a "Twisted Bullseye". According to Gibson, the guitar features; "A maple top and a mahogany back, which work together to blend sonic depth, richness and clarity. The mahogany body uses traditional weight relief which retains resonance while reducing overall weight. A solid one-piece, quarter-sawn Grade-A maple neck is glued in with a traditional mortis & tenon joint, and carved to measure .818” at the 1st fret and .963” at the 12th. It is finished in natural satin for a comfortable, played-in feel, and topped with a Grade-A maple fingerboard with Zakk’s preferred custom fret wire. In addition to the striking Vertigo graphic atop a natural finish, and the back’s contrasting Ebony Black finish—all in genuine nitrocellulose lacquer—the Zakk Wylde Vertigo Les Paul carries several Custom-style appointments such as 7-ply top binding, 5-ply back binding, multi-bound headstock with acrylic inlays. Furthermore, the back of the headstock displays a black Zakk silhouette decal, and the entire run will have a unique sequential serial numbering from “ZWVTO 001” on up. "

The downside, this bad boy will set you back close to $3,800!
