There are so many of these Zakk Wylde Les Paul Custom guitars about, and many are thought to be genuine. If you’re going to buy one check the following: If the pickup selector switch has a surround, it’s not legit. If it appears to have a one piece maple neck, forget it, the real ones have a three piece. The volume and tone pots are speed dials, a lot of the forgeries have top hats with silver insert dials. It’s a custom shop guitar – it has a different type of serial number to the 9 digits you get on a Gibson USA guitar and it’s printed on, not stamped in, a real Zakk Wylde number starts with ZW.
