From the Hallowed Halls of Gibson's Custom/Historic Division, and the tone maniacs at Wildwood Guitars we are proud to present the Wildwood Spec Historic Les Pauls!

These incredible creations feature hand selected hardwoods, Tone Pros long studs and anchors, and Special Designed Gibson Custom Bucker pickups wound to Wildwood spec.

The long anchors transfer more resonance and sustain and a piano-like fundamental; a bigger, throatier, and more masculine singing voice; The high end is more balanced, open and present without any of the harsher, spiky transients.

The Special design pickups offer unparalleled touch sensitivity and response, articulation with gorgeous bloom, compression and bounce, and are absolutely dripping with overtones and harmonics. We love these pickups!!
