To be fair, it never claims to be a Gibson or a Les Paul, but it does have "Mahogany Body Wood", whatever in hell that is...

My ZW had an ebony fretboard, not rosewood. No toggle chip either.

Let us count the ways:

1. Zakk Wylde necks don't have any finish on them.

2. The pickup rings don't have gold screws, they have black screws.

3. The pickup height adjustment screws are supposed to be gold, not silver.

4. The real model comes with active EMGs, not passive HZs.

5. Backplate is all kinds of wrong.

6. Rosewood fretboards don't come on Customs.

7. No pokerchip on the real model.

Don't forget that terrible cutout.

This guy has no picture of the headstock, and never says who the manufacturer is. He's very clearly trying to take advantage of people with very little knowledge.

well, it's rather cheap, anyways.
wouldn't really matter if it was fake or not, right? I mean… I bet you that Epiphones of the similar price range has similar quality to it anyway.


just… get rid of the EMG-HZs!!

Doesnt work, ive moded a fake zak to the bone and they just dont cut the cheese, feel weird and sounds tinny. The passive EMG's sound pretty good actually,i really liked them. Should've kept them but hey, JB/JAZZ ;) No complaints.

Yes, its a piece of shit. But i still dont see how this is a fake. The add says: Zakk Wylde Electric Guitar
He never used the words Gibson or Epiphone. Also, the starting bid is low..
