The [Limited Edition Zakk Wylde Moderne of Doom](http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/Designer/Gibson-USA/Zakk-Wylde-Moderne-of-Doom.aspx) is based on the never released third member of the Modernist Series of the late 1950s—the Gibson Moderne. According to Wylde in this [Music News article](http://www.musicnewsnashville.com/zakk-wylde-love-gibson-guitars/), "the design is from 1958. The Moderne came out about the time the Flying V and Explorer came out. All three of them were not big sellers at all. In 1958, when they came out, they were way ahead of their time with those guitar shapes." Wylde worked with Gibson to design the guitar. "With the Moderne, it’s oddly shaped, and I really like those guitars," he said. "I definitely wanted to modify it for the 21st century. It’s as thick as a Les Paul now. It has the Custom-style block inlays, the Floyd Rose, the mahogany body. They did an amazing job with that guitar."more
