I saw this in the morning but forgot about it until now...I don't think it has been posted.

The first offering from Wylde Audio, including the Odin, War Hammer and Viking models, are set to debut at the 2016 winter NAMM. Zakk has already been putting the prototypes through their paces at recent BLACK LABEL SOCIETY shows.

"I'm very excited for the launch of Wylde Audio in 2016," Wylde states. "For me, it's the next logical step. You start as a player, manager, VP of team operations, then team owner. I've surrounded myself with super talented people to make this vision become a reality and having Schecter on board as our distributor is going to allow me to bring Wylde Audio's boutique quality of craftsmanship to the next level."

I thought Wylde was starting his own brand of guitars ans amps, his Gibson signature series where until quite recently my favourite guitars to gig with, the maple neck and fretboard, I even didn't mind the paint jobs on them = thought the ones I used for gigging I had refinished.

O.K. I see now Wylde Audio will be distributed by Schecter in 70 countries - what about the rest who will distribute them there, I still can't find a straight answer as to if they will be made by Schecter or not.

I see the pics posted are of the 'V' and not the goofy LP'ish thing with the sperm-tail for a horn.

smart move.

Pretty cool, but all EMG 81/85 in mahogany sound the same.

instead of 'Vanilla Nitro' each one comes with it's own 'stale smoke and beer' scent.

he is trying to make higher quality gear at an affordable price. at least that's what his mission statement was.

I think they are ugly but there are sh*t ton of people with strats and I think those are ugly too so what do I know :dunno:

Likewise, especially after watching Kenny Wayne Shepherd blow him off the stage at the Experience Hendrix concert in Oklahoma.

His first two discs with Ozzy were a breath of fresh air. After that, I lost all interest in his playing. But those first two, DAYUM--- He didnt wank, he played with heart and soul. I love the song Zombie Stomp because it has some really cool fills and some pretty thoughtful stuff going on IMO--
