Ride the Lightning
Attention, rare guitar lovers! Wildwood has managed to procure an incredible prototype from our friends at Suhr! John Suhr and his team of mad geniuses have put this guitar's finish through something called the Lichtenberg Process. That basically means that they coated the body in an electrically-conductive solution, attached two probes to the wood, and then zapped the it with thousands of volts of electricity. Then, the electricity burned beautiful fractal patterns that look like lightning bolts into the top of the guitar! Obviously, this is the most rock and roll method of applying finish, but it also elevates this guitar into a piece of art. The Lichtenberg Process is quite random--after all, who can predict what electricity will do?--yet they have managed to find the beauty in the chaos and package it into a jaw-dropping, heart-stopping final product. Suhr has literally managed to catch lightning in a bottle with this prototype, and we are proud to showcase the fruits of their labor for our exceptional customers.
