Billy Corgan Signature Z-One
The Reverend Billy Corgan Z-One, a third signature collaboration between Billy Corgan & Joe Naylor, is inspired by the heavier songs in the Smashing Pumpkins Catalog. An alder body creates a thick tone, while deep cutaways provide easy access to the higher frets. Railhammer Z-One pickups have a fat midrange and a smooth top end, with custom artwork etched into the covers. An aluminum pickguard and a “Z” icon at the headstock make this one futuristic-looking guitar. The Billy Corgan Z-One is for anyone who wants to rip big rock solos with a thick yet smooth tone.

New Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Pickups: based on the original Billy Corgan Signature pickups, but we beefed up the output and smoothed out the treble for a thicker, heavier rock tone. Billy wanted a tone that worked better for the heavy rock tunes, and for reference specifically mentioned Geek USA, Quiet, Jellybelly, Zero, and Bodies.
String Thru Body Bridge
String-thru body design and stainless steel saddles for a percussive attack that provides maximum sustain and a ringing, solid tone.
Low Profile Knobs
All the controls feature the classic low profile knob shape, rendered in a chrome finish. The passive Bass Contour is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. Variable pickup voicing at your fingertips!
Strategic chambers under the pickguard add resonance and reduce weight.
