Let’s Go Guitar Shopping with Zakk Wylde

I’d hate to break it to you but you probably can’t go hang with Zakk Wylde in New York. Wait, let me check his… nope, no openings. Sorry pal. But let Metal Injection simulate the experience for you as he takes a tour through Matt Umanov Guitars.

In the process he talks about what he looks for in guitars, why practicing scales is more thrilling than a video game, and how to melt hearts at the EMG studio.

Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society will be releasing their new album, Catacombs of the Black Vatican, on April 8th.
