Zakk Wylde has stated on an interview over at Modern Guitars Magazine that Gibson will be putting out a new guitar model designed by him called Zakk-V or ZV: “They made me the Flying V, so I’ve been jamming on the V a lot. I designed this other one, it’s called a ZV, Zakk-V, it’s a combination of an SG meets a Flying V, which sounds slammin’. They did an awesome job with that, so they’re going to end up putting that one out as well. I’ve just been using, you know, same thing, my Les Pauls and then the Flying V.”
Zakk Wylde turned 40 years old last January. He is the founder of Black Label Society, a band he started in 1998 and that has released 9 albums. He is also the guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, an association that started in the late 80’s when he was only 20 years old. Check out the rest of the Modern Guitars Magazine interview here.
