Wylde Audio unleashes the Blood Eagle

Zakk Wylde’s company throws down the gauntlet with a new axe that takes the classic Explorer shape and makes it even more metal.

Wylde Audio, founded by Zakk Wylde, has announced its latest guitar: the Blood Eagle.

Though official specs have not been released, images from Wylde Audio’s website give us hints on what to expect. From the looks of it, the Blood Eagle will sport a body shape reminiscent of the iconic Gibson Explorer, albeit with the brand’s trademark ‘pointier’ lower horn. EMG humbuckers, a six-a-side headstock and two devilish finishes—Mahogany Blackout and Nordic Ice—are the other metal-ready features on the guitar.
