Sonic Evaluation

This is the first Wildwood Spec Explorer to grace our shelves in some time, and boy have we ever missed these guitars! This one oozes swagger with its 4-Ply pickguard, sweet natural finish, and gold hardware. It also provides a sterling example of classic Gibson Explorer tone. The bridge pickup has glorious woody punch in the low mids, plenty of snarl in the upper mids, sizzling trebles, and tight low-end. It's a bit rawer and more rugged than normal, and it will work perfectly for any music that requires a bit of bad attitude. The neck position has broad, woody midrange, deep low-end, and sweet, singing highs. It is also uncommonly clear despite its thick tone, which makes it excellent for rhythm work. All in all, this Explorer is a monster, and anyone who appreciates pointy guitars and classic tone will dig it!
