We’ve been impressed by Wylde Audio’s metal-leaning offerings so far, so we have high hopes for the Zakk Wylde-fronted company’s latest design, the Blood Eagle.
A freaky pointed Explorer offshoot with a six-a-side headstock, the Blood Eagle is spec’d in a similar fashion to Zakk’s other designs, with a mahogany body, quilted maple top and three-piece maple set neck with 24.625” scale length.
EMG 81/85 humbuckers provide the tonal firepower, naturally, while a Graph Tech Black Tusq nut and Tone Pros bridge/tailpiece combo round out the spec.
We’d argue the finish options have a little more universal appeal this time around, though; we dig both the sleek Mahogany Blackout and the quilt-y goodness of the Nordic Ice.
Price-wise, you’re looking at $1,649 - head over to Wylde Audio for more info.
