    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?

    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.

    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.
