Zakk Wylde LP?
« on: January 01, 2007, 07:51:34 AM »
Hmmmm, I'm not sure who made this but the guitar doesn't look much like a ZW LP cause of all the little mistakes and the fact that the silhouette on the back of the headstock looks like he's playing a banjo  :o

I don't think I need to mention the case...

I think this is one of those copycat guitars from that factory somewhere in Asia (I'm sorry, I can't remember the details but there was a factory that made copies of expensive guitars and sold them as the real deal)

fake..


single glance at the case.. man.. i knot gibson on the headstock sometimes spells gibsun, cos of the lettering, but on the case it's a touch too bovious innit?


and the silhouette is a dead giveaway.. WTF!?

and if you look, the neck heel doesnt look quite right either. the bullseye stripes are a touch too thin i think.


this guy was probalby ripped off by those scammers in china, now he's trying to unload it

There's all kinds of wrong going on there, just one example.... it's got a painted neck, oh and no custom inlay.. oops, that was two examples :)

Man that guitar has given me G.A.S. (well it's made me quite ill really)

I love the Banjo Zakk on the back of the headstock - It must be from back when he was in Pride & Glory... :roll:  :wink:  :roll:

the gibson writing isn't even in the the middle of the headstock, it's too far to the right. But i've seen worse gibson copies. No really, a LOT worse!
