Gibson has unveiled the new Zakk Wylde Moderne Of Doom named after BLACK LABEL SOCIETY mainman Zakk Wylde (ex-OZZY OSBOURNE).

The Limited Edition Zakk Wylde Moderne of Doom is based on the legendary, yet never released, third member of the Modernist Series of the late 1950s—the Gibson Moderne. Intended to complement the revolutionary Explorer and Flying V, the Moderne never saw the light of day, though rumors of existing examples persist to this day. In the hands of Gibson USA, the radical Moderne style taken from factory design sketches of 1958 unfolds as an unrelenting, flamethrowing modern-rock tone machine.

With a body constructed from a solid Grade-A mahogany with Grade-A maple top, the Zakk Wylde Moderne of Doom launches its attack with time-tested tonewoods. But it quickly takes the look to another planet with the ultra-radical Moderne body style and a natural nitrocellulose finish with Zakk-certified black pinstripe top graphic. A glued-in Grade-A maple neck is carved to Zakk’s preferred profile for full-on shred, and topped with a beautiful dark Grade-A Richlite™ fingerboard. A pair of Zakk’s beloved EMG™ active humbuckers—an EMG 85 in the neck position and an EMG 81 in the bridge—provides unequalled power and sustain for everything from crunch-of-doom rhythm licks to hellfire leads. And to take the guitar’s versatility to the next level, there’s a Floyd Rose™ vibrato with locking nut ready to scream out your wildest dive-bombing action. Visit Gibson online HERE.
