From the Gibson Custom Shop and Wildwood Guitars comes the latest incarnation of the Wildwood Spec Les Pauls! For these spectacular guitars the necks, fingerboards, bodies, tops, and even the small Mahogany wings that glue to the headstock have been painstakingly and carefully hand-selected to utilize the lightest and most resonant woods available.

The P-90 pickups in our Featherweights have Alnico 3 magnets and are under wound giving them increased bloom, harmonic depth, and clarity with a bit more compression and bounce in the attack, like a vintage P-90 from the 50s!

Contains all the same changes that the 2013 Historics have with a added 1894-2014 Custom Shop backplate.

Extensive feature and construction changes have been made to the 2013-2014 Gibson Historic guitars:

• Finish - Aniline dye now colors the bodies and necks of the sunburst finishes, replicating the original beauty and finishing technique that created the Cherry over Mahogany finish of the 1950’s.

• Fingerboard - 1-piece rosewood fingerboards.

• Hardware - Long bridge and tailpiece studs and inserts to replicate the originals and adding to the already brilliant high’s, attack, and sustain the Les Paul is known for.

• Construction - Hot hide glue in the neck to body joint maximizes the resonant benefit of set neck construction.

• Aesthetics - Historically more realistic darker binding.

• New color formula for Goldtops, adds a bit more green and depth to the finish. Also new finish to back and sides that adds more depth and richer grain presentation!

The Wildwood Spec Featherweight Les Pauls offer the very best in soulful tone and playing comfort. The lightweight woods give the Wildwood Spec Featherweight a more open tone, with more air and information surrounding the notes, while the Maple top adds high end and sustain that will last through to next Tuesday.
