Got this pic from a guitar magazine:





Apparently there's a new Gibson LP BFG (the one with the dragon graphic) and a JCM800 on the way.

What do you guys think?

like i stated in another conversation, the gibson will be around £2k-3k for another les paul with EMGs a graphic no one will want to have unless they're in a BLS tribute band or the world's biggest ZW fan

the JCM800 does sound pretty good tho, sounds like something that will sell well. Hopefully it won't be another limited run model like the other sig amps Marshall amps so far

well the Kerry King model wasn't that great anyway I imagine this will be pretty similar but with a different grill.

That guitar actually looks really cool though, if it doesn't cost like $59832057348905720935 then it may be worth it for that awesome dragon.

That guitar looks really weird to be a Zakk Wylde one, but man, I'm digging it. That grill on the amp and the cabinets looks really awesome. Can't wait to get some more info on that. While it's true that there was a ZW JCM signature earlier, I hope these will get produced more and don't end up costing half a leg. Would be awesome to have them in the same price range as the Kerry King signature. Could consider getting one, as Zakk Wylde is one of my main influences.

In the article Zakk said that the amp is going to have the fattest but clearest JCM800 tones ever. Probably also has a nice clean channel.
The cab will come with 200W EV speakers.

The guitar with the drsgon graphic looks like a standard in that picture. Not a BFG.


The 800s look pretty damn cool though.

No idea.

In the article he just mentioned 200W EV speakers, his signature ones are actually 300W AFAIK.

I prefer the EV12L's to the EV12LZW. But that means the cab will be ~$1600 USD

Why anyone would get a KK jcm800 or a ZW jcm800 in the US is beyond me when you have stuff like splawn that blows it away for much less.
