OVERVIEW

A distinctive model with active EMG pickups and signature features.

With scorching riffs and remarkable stage presence, Zakk Wylde has earned his reputation as heavy metal's premier lead guitarist. It's perhaps no surprise that he's now going from making great music to making great guitars at the head of his own company. The Wylde Audio Odin electric guitar is part of the first wave of models to come from this new company.

With nordic spirit this single cutaway is ready to seize the stage. The Odin offers the player one of Zakk's most elegant designs featuring a solid mahogany body with a set 3-piece maple neck. The bound ebony fretboard has a 24.6 in. scale and 14 in. radius with 22 extra jumbo frets, just the way Zakk likes it.

From Ozzy Osbourne, Pride and Glory, and now Black Label Society, Zakk has always used EMG active pickups and you'll find a pair onboard in the time-tested combination of EMG 85/81 that has helped define Zakk's sound. Gold hardware includes Grover tuners and locking tune-o-matic bridge. Case sold separately.

Details about the EMGs onboard
Although the EMG-85 pickup has more measurable output than the 81, its frequency response and string interface are different. The 85 uses two Alnico magnet-loaded coils with a wide aperture to maintain a beefy low end and a fatter top end. Because of a more natural tone, it works great as a rhythm and blues pickup because it has loads of output but isn't muddy. It's a perfect choice as a rhythm pickup in combination with an 81 in the bridge. 

The midrange has great definition and doesn't get foggy or muddy in the rhythm position. The EMG-85 works best if you like the natural distortion that comes from overdriving the front end of your amp. Under any condition, the humbucker responds accurately to your technique. 

The EMG-81 pickup is a high-output pickup designed especially for the lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock 'n' roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you're looking for exceptional qualities in a rock pickup, the EMG-81 is the one. 

Distortion during lead passages is consistent, sustain is long and the breakup fades smoothly. The ceramic magnet in combination with wide aperture steel poles lend a quick attack but the tone stays nice and fat at the same time. Perfect if you're the only guitarist in the band, and need to switch from rhythm to lead and still keep the band moving. Another great thing about the EMG-81 humbucker is it's quiet. If you're playing at really high gain the last thing you need is noise.

Comments about Wylde Audio Odin Grail Electric Guitar:

First gear review ever. The quality of this baby compelled me to sit down and write this. I got the Genesis Bullseye, and the paint job is FLAWLESS. As is the rest of the craftsmanship. The neck feels great -- the jumbo frets give it an incredible feel. And the appointments on this thing are top notch -- they didn't skimp here. TonePros bridge and tailpiece (both locking), Zakk's preferred EMGs, Grover tuners and a GraphTech nut. The only thing I changed were the strings (it shipped with 10s -- I switched to 9s), and threw on some Dunlop Straploks. I kept expecting to find the "Oh, HERE'S where they cut corners" feature, but it just ain't there. I'm just really impressed with the thought and quality that went into this thing, especially with this being part of the first batch of guitars to come out of a brand new company. Very pleasantly surprised.
