Les paul custom VS.Zakk Wylde?


Recommended Posts

The neck has a satin finish (the original Gibson has an oiled raw maple neck). The profile and material might be different from the regular Custom, too. Too bad I've always been in a hurry when I've played them.


2 out of 3 that I've tried have been very nice and solid, the third had blems but no price discount (a big thank you goes to the Nordic distributor for not caring .. those bloody f-holes).


Don't know if it's a thick paint job or what, but the ZWs feel somehow more thick and massive than a regular LP Custom.

Just an illusion, I guess. They at least sound good acoustically, too.


edit. MF boasts it has a maple top (instead of a veneer on the Standards or no top like the Custom), but who knows.
