January 27, 2016
Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE) spoke to Guitar Center on January 22 at the NAMM show in Anaheim, California about his latest creation, Wylde Guitars. You can now watch the chat below.
Schecter Guitar Research and Wylde Audio recently announced a worldwide distribution deal. Schecter will distribute Wylde Guitars via its distributor network covering over 70 countries, which also includes handling fulfillment of the guitars in the USA.
"We are extremely proud to be working with Zakk and Wylde Audio on this endeavor," states Schecter Guitar Research executive vice-president Marc LaCorte. "Zakk has been incredible in recognizing what he wanted in his own brand and bringing the best possible product to the market."
The first offering from Wylde Audio, including the Odin, War Hammer and Viking models, debuted at the 2016 winter NAMM. Zakk has already been putting the prototypes through their paces at recent BLACK LABEL SOCIETY shows.
"I'm very excited for the launch of Wylde Audio in 2016," Wylde states. "For me, it's the next logical step. You start as a player, manager, VP of team operations, then team owner. I've surrounded myself with super talented people to make this vision become a reality and having Schecter on board as our distributor is going to allow me to bring Wylde Audio's boutique quality of craftsmanship to the next level."
