Ok, so Zakk Wylde had a guitar made a while back, known as the Muddy Bullseye which was made by Dean. They also have a guitar know as the Splitail, which is basically the same thing. Im pretty sure that this guitar was designed by Dime, but now Gibson is releasing a new custom guitar known as the Z-V, or Zakk V which is nearly idetical, and Zakk claims to have come up with this design himself. Is Zakk stealing his dead buddies ideas?

You're losing interest because you're simply not gay enough. Which leads me to believe you aren't cut out for metal.

Sometimes, I masturbate while imagining my girlfriend is ramming her knee up into my precious orbs. It turns me on so much.

Actually, that's not true. I don't have a girlfriend

No, it matters that he's using a design that he made and is claiming it as his own.

Hmm, so you didn't read it too carefully. I said the Muddy Bullseye.

I thought the muddy bullseye was just a bullseye razorback?

anyway the splittail was a ZW design.

I'm not sure what you're getting at.

They're all just different modifications of the flying V shape. None of them are exactly the same.

I must've missed what you were getting at in your original post.

Well the first one he had, Dime had made just for Zakk bacause they used to give guitars to each other all the time. And a lot of times when you have a contract with someone, you just end up doing what they say to do, so it might not have even been his idea.

When you make your career on drowning your music with pinch harmonics and soloing over the same scale over and over again, especially a sound as cliche as the pentatonic scale, you're nothing special.

btw, looks slightly different.

Black Label Society is my favorite band, and I will agree that Zakk does use excessive pinch harmonics and pentatonic scales, but if you listen to his acoustic work, it's incredible. His solos in "Book Of Shadows" are all awsome. Youve got to admit that he puts alot of passion into his playing though, you can just feel the power in his playing in the solo on "Last Goodbye".

The Muddy Bullseye sounds like a euphemism for an anus.

i don't think it matters too much. I think its a bit out of his hands when it comes down to him. He'll probably treasure the original dean anyway. And the story on that one is pretty vauge. Zakk and him could've been just messing around and Zakk goes "you know a SG flying v mix would look cool", then dime gets dean to make it and he gives it to him as a gift. The interview on the site you linked it seems like the companies just handle most of it. That said, he probably should've at least screened the MG ads.

Yeah, even though I could care less about Zakk Wylde and Dimebag as musicians and "luthiers", I saw that guitar in a 2006 or 2007 issue of Guitar World.

Zakk didn't design it himself. It was designed by Dimebag before he died FOR Zakk. Zakk may have done a few changes, but he didn't design it all.
