Lost the headstock here in Rio. :)

I like how you can see the little plastic tab that Gibson uses to align the fingerboard and neck blank.

What do you mean by the EMG 81 being signature? If you mean something special/modded, I've never read or heard of him using anything but stock EMG 81/85 combos. EMG just packages them as a ZW set for marketing purposes. Both pickups were around long before many Guitarists saw Zakk using them.

Read page one. Your questions have already been answered. And no, just as roodyrocker said, its just marketing. Same pickup as they have always produced.

I have always used 047-010 strings sets and only recently found out that 060's are available. Shows how much I pay attention right? Well now I find out that there are 070's out there! What's a boy to do?

070! That's gotta be like a Bass string right?

To me Zakk is a Amazing player but honestly i wouldn't chase tone that much to the point of wanting to know what neck wood it is. to me you are gonna sound like you weather you play your hero's signature gear or not.

There's a guy on the Seymour Duncan forum with one just like Zakk's only not burned - beer bottle caps and all.
I never knew he'd based it on Zakk's, he never mentioned that, I always assumed it was his own, stupid idea.

lol.
