zakk wylde zv custom electric – 24 / 360


If you haven’t noticed yet, yesterday we announced the new Epiphone ZV Custom electric guitar on http://www.epiphone.com. Links to a NEWS item and the new Micro-Site are below. The Micro-Site features a 360 degree rotation of the guitar… but maybe not how you are used to seeing one. We took the guitar to a local construction site and photographed the instrument 24 times, making a complete circle around it, then through the wonders of FLASH created the movement. It’s a pretty cool effect. And speaking of cool… be sure and check out the guitar! It’s totally radical and will allow players to add a not-so-normal shape to their collection at an affordable price.

    I love my epi em-2 custom because it is unique, but honestly this new “ZV” just seems like a downright tacky way to combine two of America’s most beloved guitar shapes. I personally do not at all like the shape and it just seems more practical to get an SG for the same feel. The V part is completely cosmetic and seems like an excuse to call it a new guitar (no offense Mr. Wylde) but I think you could have designed something more original.

    Greg… it is for sure different. We are finding that people either love it or hate it… not much in between. But that’s not a bad thing.
