Gibson Zakk Wylde Bullseye Signature
Gibson Supreme Les Paul *AAAA Carved Maple Top And Back*

ok, don't you NEED an erection before penetration?? lol. anyways, condoms do occasionally break, and you CAN get her pregnant but you probably didn't. but make her go get the morning after pill. or fall down stairs. or something.

You can't really decide without playing them! Hint hint.....

But definately stay away from signature Gibsons, way overpriced for what they are, honestly.

Id say go for the bog standard Custom. Thats what Ive got and its as good as anything out there that Gibson do. I used to have a Zakk bullseye, it was quite nice but for the money it wasnt worth it really. Never played the Slash but wouldnt mind owning one coz of the Peizo in the bridge. I love slash too!
#4
well... my shop that i work at... isnt a gibson dealer... the nearest one is in Houston... and thats about 115 miles away... i mean... my shop can ORDER them... but what good would that be? and as far as the sigs... i know that theyre WAY overpriced... but i lust after the Slash Sig... lol... now if i could get that finish on another guitar... id do it in a heartbeat... but its a "Slash Custom Tobacco Burst" finish or some sh*t...

Don't get the Wylde one, because of the EMGs.
unless your a major BLS fan....

If you want to play metal, Slash's pickups will suck. But otherwise it's awesome, gorgeous, and has a piezo.

and outta the last two, the custom by far, because it's a custom, ie it has the best woods, and it will be pefect right outside the box (but change the pickups to 57' classics!)

so it's between Slash and Custom for me...
#6
lol... my pickups of choice from Gibson are '57 Classic in the neck and '57 Classic Plus in the bridge... im not a real fan of Alnico pickups... and why no EMGs? they get great harmonics and sustain great... ill admit though that id take Seymour Duncans any day... ;-)

pff, I've had 3 different SD's and they all sucked (JB, Jazz, Dimebucker), now I have a wineshead and a bareknuckle, and I can't complain.

Pros use EMGs to have a relatively clean sound, buzz free when playing loud aith lots of gain and/or effects.

But a friend of mine has a guitar with Gibson 57s and they are truely amazing.
#8
i truely agree about the 57s... im thinkin bout swappin em into my Epi LP Custom... awe, no likey the Jazz? yea... i could agree... 59s a better pickup i think... as much gain as i crank out... i can understand wanting to ban the buzz...

i already have the Epi LP Custom... and i love it.. so im sure that the Gibson version would blow me away... so basically... everybodys sayin forget the ZW Sig... so ill drop it... its down to the Custom, Supreme, and the Slash Sig...

Historic Reissues > Sigs and Customs
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?
#14
From your narrowing (and if money is no object) I would select the Slash model. The Piezo pickup ensures acoustic-esque cleans, while the two Alnico 2s will provide sexual cleans and smooth leads!

from i read, the alcino II's in the slash LP will give you some creamy, vintage goodness

then again you could buy a standard and swap the pups, and save $2000

dunlop... i think that me and you are mentally connected...

hahaha

i thought about that... but there arent really Standards that im interested in... i actually... was interested in the Gibson Classic LP... but decided not to get it... but if i was to switch pups... id put in Burstbucker Pros or a 57 Classic and 57 Classic Plus
