The Magic is in the Details
The Wildwood Spec by Tom Murphy Les Paul Standards are so much more than meets the eye. We began by hand-selecting premium maple tops and Indian Rosewood fingerboards, and we carefully matched them to give each instrument its own unique visual aesthetic. Then, Tom did the rest with his wizard’s touch. He painted each and every one of these instruments completely by hand, and they also feature his ultra-accurate top carve, hand-stamped hangtags, all-hide glue construction, and reinforced metal jack plates. To complete the package, each of these Les Pauls features our proprietary Wildwood Spec Custombucker pickups, which we believe offer the ultimate vintage PAF sound. These phenomenal instruments have been personally crafted to look and sound as authentic as humanly possible, and we believe this dedication to the details is why they capture the mojo of our favorite vintage Les Pauls with such jaw-dropping precision.
More Options Than Ever
Of course, we couldn’t stop with just one finish or just one tribute to just one year of production. We are proud to offer reissues of the Les Paul’s 1958, 1959 and 1960 incarnations, because we couldn’t bring ourselves to pick just one model to celebrate! Additionally, we worked directly with Tom to develop three stunning finishes: a Murphy Sunburst, a Murphy Teaburst, and a Murphy Lemonburst, each of which features a meticulous replication of a UV fade out of a traditional sunburst. Wildwood Guitars is honored to offer these exceptional instruments to our exceptional customers in both gloss and aged finishes for a total of six distinctive looks.
Any guitar that Tom Murphy touches usually leaves the Wildwood team in total shock and awe, but these guitars have exceeded our lofty expectations. They’ve left our jaws stuck firmly on the floor ever since the moment we unboxed them. They’ve blown us away in every way imaginable, and we are proud to present the next chapter of Tom Murphy’s artistry: The Wildwood Spec by Tom Murphy Les Paul Standard.
