Here's what Epiphone say about the Zakk Wylde Les Paul Custom Plus Bullseye
All NEW for 2011! 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 active Zakk Wylde EMG-81/85 active humbucking 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 Ebony fingerboard. Ultra-hard and ultra-smooth, you'll feel the hear the difference. So plug it in and crank it up!
Same Great Features and Look!
Zakk's Les Paul Custom Bullseye takes the classic Les Paul design and adds his signature "twist" to it. It starts with a solid, unchambered Mahogany body with a carved top. Preferred by Zakk for it's added "bite," the neck is made of Hard Maple (as opposed to the more traditional Mahogany neck). This neck has an ultra-smooth and fast satin natural finish that always Zakk (and you!) to move up and down the neck effortlessly. Of course, the neck is glued into the body using TiteBond with a traditional mortise and tenon neck joint for rock solid feel, sustain and tone.
Loaded with premium add-ons!
Other premium features include Epiphone's LockTone(tm) tune-o-matic/stopbar combination for increased sustain and easy string changes, 16:1 ratio Grover(tm) machine heads, a 7-layer bound body, a 5-layer bound headstock and a comfortable single-layer bound Ebony fingerboard. Not to mention, gold hardware and Zakk's signature "camouflage" graphics!
And like every Epiphone, it features their Limited Lifetime warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 day Gibson Customer Service.
