Blurb from Wildwood:
Select Your Weapon
Wildwood and Gibson have a long and storied history of collaboration and friendship. Over the last 35 years, we have partnered with them to produce all kinds of Wildwood-exclusive guitars, and we believe that those instruments are some of the finest in the world thanks to the incredible creativity, passion, and skill of the good people at Gibson. One project on our wish list always eluded us, though: we’ve never done a Wildwood-exclusive run of Gibson USA guitars. That is, until now! Wildwoodians, please meet the newest member of the Wildwood Family: the Wildwood Select Original Collection Les Paul Standard ‘50s.

The Wildwood Select Les Paul is an attempt to capture some of the magic of our Wildwood Spec Custom Shop instruments in a more affordable package. Since we handpick the tops for our Custom Shop instruments, we asked our friends at the USA factory if we could do the same thing for this run. They were happy to oblige us, and we think you’ll agree that the cuts of maple we chose are absolutely stunning. Be sure to engage your drool shield if you’re planning on scrolling through these guitars!

We also asked them to spray that handpicked wood with a brand-new exclusive finish: Unburst! We chose it because many of the original bursts from the fifties had their finishes lightened by exposure to UV light while on display in music stores–Ed King’s “Redeye” ’59 and Peter Green’s Lester are two iconic examples that come to mind. We wanted to pay tribute to these faded fifties LPs, and we think you’ll agree that the Unburst finish highlights the grain of the handpicked maple beautifully.
The Divine Sound of 1959
Finally, we asked Gibson to wind us an exclusive set of pickups, and they came up with some marvelous humbuckers for us. Here at Wildwood, we love PAFs the way Slash loves top hats, so we asked them to capture the sweet vintage tones of those magical fifties bursts. It was a tall order, to be sure, but the wizards at Gibson delivered. They wound us some Wildwood Spec ’59 Tribute pickups, and I could write a War and Peace-sized treatise about how awesome they are.
