Gibson Custom Shop Wildwood Spec 1958 Mahogany Explorer – VOS
Sonic EvaluationTo the future owner of this guitar: please allow me to have visitation rights, because I have fallen deeply and madly in love with it. It has a snappy, round attack that gives way to open, three-dimensional resonance. The lows are open and sonorous with piano-like fullness, the highs scream like Janis Joplin, and the mids roar and snarl like an underfed grizzly bear. In the bridge position, chords sound muscular and leads punch right through the mix. In the neck position, rhythm lines have crushing weight and remarkable clarity, and single-note lines sing like Aretha. Anyone looking for a monster Explorer should take this bad boy for a spin!
