Epiphone Flying Vee Wee Zakk Pakk

gg zakkwyldeWhat do you get when you combine a half-size Flying V with a Marshall amp and Zakk Wylde's attitude? You get the Epiphone Flying Vee Wee Zakk Pakk with everything you need to rock out in style and make a mighty sound from a small package!

The Epiphone Flying Vee Wee Zakk Pakk includes a half-sized guitar decked out with Zakk's signature bullseye graphic. Perfect for starters or as a travel guitar, it features a full-size neck width so it plays just like a regular axe. It's equipped with an Epiphone 700T humbucking pickup for real rock tones. Add to that 21 medium-jumbo frets, a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, and adjustable bridge, and deluxe 14:1 ratio covered tuners and you've got a guitar that will keep you rockin' for years to come.

Most guitarists would agree that the perfect rock marriage is a humbucker-equipped guitar plugged into a Marshall stack. That's why the Flying Vee Wee Zakk Pakk includes Marshall's MS-4ZW micro full stack amplifier. Packing real Marshall tone, this mighty micro has separate volume, gain, and tone controls combined with two speaker cabinets. You won't believe the sound from this 9-3/4" high mini monster! It also includes a tilt-back stand and a headphone out that doubles as a preamp out for driving an external power amp!

Also included with the Flying Vee Wee Zakk Pakk is a 10' guitar cable, gigbag with accessory pocket, 2"-wide nylon strap with Zakk's signature, and three medium picks.

Available from Guitar Center

Got a few minutes? Zakk is a genuine "Rock Father" himself, and the video below shows that in full glory as he sings "I Thank You Child" with his daughter:

The song comes from the BOOK OF SHADOWS album, and is available on iTunes
