I've been looking at the Epiphone Zakk Wylde LEs paul for a long time. My friend at school has one and I love his. It plays great, sounds great, looks great. But 800 bucks is alot as I'm only 17. I was looking at the Epi LP custom silverburst. It's 600 so my question is.... What is the difference. Is it just the paintjob and pickups or is there more. I'm gonna replace them on either guitar so I don't care and I know that the Zakk model has an unfinished neck. Am I better off saving 200 bucks?

Pickups and the Zakk wylde les paul has a different wood on it's top layer.

However, the custom is much nicer and it's pickups are very good IMO.

well...

the lp custom is made out of mahogany/alder with a mahogany neck

the zakk wylde's body is made out of mahogany and while the neck is made out of mahogany

of course the fretboards are rosewood...im not exactly sure about the woods but i do know that mahogany produces a smoother mellower sound and alder tends to be brighter

i suggest if you can to go to a guitar store that has both of them and try them through the same amp (one similar to what you would be using) and see if you notice a difference or if you like the zakk wylde enough more than the custom to pay the extra money

the pickups are also different...you can always upgrade the ones on the custom later if you want

Ya, I'm gonna change the pickups and I'll probably get the Zakk Wylde. I prefer the unfinished feal of the neck. I've played both through my exact amp and they sound very similar. I've really grown to like the bulls eye too.

DO NOT BE A TOOL.... Silverburst all the way. Getting someone elses guitar was an early mistake of mine. Take the Silverburst and make it YOUR guitar. People will know that you have that model. It's a beautiful thing.

k heres what the difference is because these people apparently dont know...

the zakk has emg hz's (which i hate)
it has a maple neck (and fretboard on the buzzsaw and camo versions)
and the body does not have a cap on it.

whereas the customs have 3 gold covered pickups (silver on the silverburst)
mahogany body with an alder cap
and a mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard
