Zakk Wylde Rebel Flag w/ Bottle Caps

Hi,
Hope this isn't a re-post but has anyone attempted to re-create Zakk's LP with the burned Rebel Flag and all the Bottle Caps? two questions:
1: pretty sure the caps are screwed in or tacked in. wonder how deep those could be to not interfere with tone due to chambering or weight relief cavities?
2: that burnt finish looks like a technique in itself. anyone have good results with that?

Re: Zakk Wylde Rebel Flag w/ Bottle Caps

They are nailed on...

I heard an interview where he was somone else playing the exact guitar and got pissed and beat it up it and started nailed bottle caps on it.. I don't know the exact nails used.. not sure that he burned it eather.. but by the rust on the caps... maybe they were exposed to heat

but there IS a facebook page dedicated to the guitar.. nd a previous thread here

That would be Bret Michaels.

i heard the "guitarist" in Warrant was playing a rebel, and Richard Wieland (Zakk) saw it so he burnt his custom amd started to hammer on beer caps.

Re: Zakk Wylde Rebel Flag w/ Bottle Caps

I think the Rebel w/ Caps and the BLS LP are my 2 favorite...


Personally, I think he should have done it to CC Deville's as opposed to his own, BUT it is an awesome guitar!

I didn't realise Zakk was a top wrapper.

That would be Jeffrey Wielandt, and the other guitarist was CC DeVille from Poison.
