    You know the history behind his confederate Les Paul right? It's a great story!!! And I understand that when C.C or Brett from Poison had it he was disgusted and hammered bottle caps into it and burned it.. now I think it's awesome! LOL

    Oh and that's nothing... the new Grave Digger Epi that he put together is not very good IMO... I'll post the link to pictures of it.

    That actually does look pretty good. One of the better 'Rebel' clones I've seen.

    Here is what the origional looks like now (after 20 odd years of heavy abuse). [​IMG]

    Likely because he feels people either want something that not normally available or the time/money invested in it is worth a few extra dollars. I was just watching Live and Loud and that does look similar to how the rebel looked back in 92-93. Not a dead on match but it's not horrible either. There have been far worse pop up from time to time.

    I've only seen a couple clones of the Rebel, and this is pretty good clone, It's obviously not an exact clone because an epi wouldn't burn the same as a Gibson.. If I had money to burn, I'd buy it..why not? I don't have money to burn so I look at Beerdogs picture all the time (It was my wallpaper for a while).. Love a guitar with a story, it enhances it ...

    I was tempted to do the same thing to a Epi Custom my buddy broke the head off of. I was going to have another friend who is demon with an air brush hook me up and paint the bottle caps on after the 'rebel look' was completed but I ended up putting his services to work on my chopper instead. :)

    I'd rather just get the Rebel clone without the bottle caps so that I can nail my own favorite brands onto the beast :D

    It's not his #1. The origional bullseye he calls the 'Grail' is his go to Les Paul.

    Yeah it unfortunately happened here in Sao Paulo ... he throwed the guitar in the crowd, and from what I've hear, there was kind of a fight between Ozzy/BLS fans and Korn fans, the Korn fans tried to take it away in a real brutal way ( probably their intention was to brake the thing ) and when Zakk saw it, he actualy jumped in the fight ... there's a guy who still has the headstock of the guitar ( a true Zakk fan ), he tried to arrange a meeting to give it back to Zakk, but Zakk was pretty pissed and refused it

    It was not in Sao Paulo. It happened the night before in Rio de Janeiro. I was there and the Rebel "landed" just by my side. It happened when he was playing Paranoid. He used the Camo Les Paul in Paranoid in Sao Paulo's concert and threw just Marshalls gabinets to the audience.
