Zakk wylde epiphone real or fake ?

Recommended Posts

I'm no expert but, it looks legitimate to me. If you go to Epiphone's website and look under the Out of Production listing, you'll find it about 3/5ths of the way down the page. One thing I just noticed...the battery compartment door on the back of yours is missing. Perhaps it has been replaced. I'd open her up and see if there's a battery under there. If not, then perhaps it is a fake. Good Luck!

It is real. These Epis came with EMG HZ, which are not active. So no need for battery compartment. I've had several, so no worries. The "U" serial number has been the best I've had in several Epiphones.

Are you telling me The Chinese are now making fakes of guitars that cost $600 to begin with and not $2500?  How much would a fake Epi cost $25? The chances someone is faking a Epi is slim to none.
