    Zakk Wylde is one of the biggest endorsement whores ever, IMO. What won't this guy put his name on?

    Nice work if you can get it, I reckon....

    I've seen it. I think Zakk might be the only guy who can pull off playing such an instrument without looking like a complete toolbox :D

    Has Zakk Wilde ever smiled? The roaring Harley dude thing is so freakin yesterday.

    He used to smile when he was a young skinny kid back in the 80's

    Is it just me, or does Zakk look like he's enjoying some deep anal penetration in this pic? :p

    I can't find anything that's why I came here...there is just a pic in that mag where you see one horn from the sg side and a fin from the V which is sharper probably more like the Dimebag sig. guitar.

    Zakk plays what he endorses... Gibson, Marshall, MXR, Monster Cable, Morley, and the Dean.

    A friend of mine plays drums for Zakk so I've had the chance to meet him on several occasions. The persona is one thing, but in person he is one of the most down to earth, friendly, famous guitar players you will ever meet. He's funny as hell and has zero ego. He loves playing guitar, talking about his heroes - Jimi, Eddie, Randy, Schenker, DiMeola, Martino, his kids and his wife. ...and the anectodal Ozzy stories would bring tears to your eyes...

    That is one of the ugliest guitars I have ever seen. And I like Wylde...

    Haven't met him, but he's hung out with some people I know and they say the same thing - he's a really nice guy at heart.

    i love the look and finish of that guitar. that sloppy spray paint looking finish is way sweeter than even the bullseye LP....plus i love dean guitars. i really want to get me a caddy.

    I read in an interview of him one time where he was bashing on Third Eye Blind and Blink... he also mentioned he's sad his kids are into N'Sync at the time. hahaha.

    BTW, in that pic, he looks like he's getting younger and younger. Oh, and the guitar is kinda ugly.

    I'm not a fan of Zakk(I can't even begin to deny his talent, but I just don't care very much for his style) but I usually like his guitars. This one I'm torn on, I like the finish but I just can't decide if I actually like the shape or not.


    And that beard is gonna put ZZ Top to shame if he keeps growing it haha.
