Gibson Custom Shop Wildwood Spec Brazilian Limited Les Paul Standard – VOS
The Ultimate Recreation of a Timeless ClassicOver the years, the Gibson Custom Shop has exceeded our wildest expectations by delivering incredible historically-accurate Les Pauls that get closer and closer to the original instruments they're paying tribute to. The Gibson Custom Shop has upped their game tremendously by utilizing all hide glue construction, analine dye, and historically accurate plastics to create new instruments that rival our favorite vintage treasures in tone, feel and vibe. Now, the Wildwood Team is proud to announce the next chapter in that journey.
It's been over 14 years since the Gibson Custom Shop has produced a Brazilian rosewood guitar. Scarcity, quality and production concerns prevented this cherished tone wood from making an appearance...until now. The Gibson Custom Shop was recently able to procure a batch of truly exceptional Brazilian rosewood, and the Wildwood team jumped at the chance to incorporate these boards into an extremely limited run of historic Les Pauls. Once we heard the news, we immediately hopped on a plane to Nashville, where we sorted through every piece of Brazilian rosewood available and selected only the finest, darkest boards we could find. Once we picked the cream of the crop, we began sorting for premium ultra high-grade maple tops that we felt were worthy of the Brazilian Limited name. Once we saw the tops married to the boards, we immediately realized that we had captured lightning in a bottle, and we’ve been waiting with baited breath to showcase the final product for our exceptional customers.
Well, the wait is over! Wildwood Guitars and the Gibson Custom Shop are pleased to present an extremely limited run of instruments that bridges the gap between these modern recreations and their vintage counterparts: the Wildwood Spec Brazilian Limited Les Paul Standard.
The Gibson Custom Shop will produce an extremely limited run of (25) instruments featuring hand-selected figured maple tops and ultra-dark Brazilian rosewood fingerboards, historically accurate serial numbers and exclusive Wildwood Spec pickups, and we are confident that they will provide Gibson enthusiasts with the ultimate Les Paul experience.
We invite you to experience the legend of Brazilian rosewood and the unparalleled magic of the Gibson Custom Shop’s historic instruments. Wildwood Guitars is proud to present the Wildwood Spec Brazilian Limited Les Paul Standard.
