BELOW IS AN EXCERT FROM “VINTAGE GUITAR MAGAZINE” INTERVIEW WITH ZAKK WYLDE FROM FEBRUARY 23, 2010. FULL INTERVIEW CAN BE FOUND AT:

(Q): You're recently scored a couple of Randy Rhoads copy guitars, one a Jackson, one built by GMW Guitar Works in Glendora, California. Is there an endorsement deal in the works?

(ZAKK): When we were in the studio making Mafia and looking at the Randy Rhoads' website, we found the polka dot V made by GMW. My children bought me that one for my birthday, and we went to Pasadena to pick it up. I'm going to use it live... it sounds awesome!

When I first got it, I was out in the garage, wailing on the fiddle, and I called Dime - this was about two weeks before the bullshit went down and said, "Check this out." And I'm wailing on the Floyd, doing divebombs, goin' nuts shreddin'. I said, "Dude, I'm invincible now!" (laughs) He goes, "You sound like the Dimebag, you asshole!" I said, "I know! Better watch it, ya' bastard!"

The Jackson doesn't have a locking nut, so I don't use the whammy all that much. Even Randy didn't use it that much. But with the GMW's Floyd, you can go nuts.
