Tool Time!
Wildwoodians, it’s Tool Time! No, we’re not about to see 22 minutes of wacky hijinks and shenanigans from Tim Allen. We’re here to celebrate a different sort of Tool that does do all sorts of things with time; specifically, the release of the Adam Jones Flying V Collector’s Edition! As the guitarist in Tool, Adam Jones has shaped the sound of all things heavy for decades, and this amazing Custom Shop V is a celebration of his legacy. If looks could kill, this guitar would have a serious body count! It features an eye-catching reverse antique silverburst finish aged by the wizards and warlocks of the Murphy Lab, and it has all kinds of nifty details like a truss rod cover with exclusive artwork, strong-through ferrules, and a Futura-style headstock. It also comes with a leather guitar strap designed by Adam himself. With the aged finish and striking appointments, it looks like a classic guitar from an alternate universe–pretty neat!

Only fifty of these guitars will be built, but they’re more than collector’s items–they’re made to suit Adam Jones’s preferences, and what can we say? The man has good taste! Tonally, it’s a study in contrasts. The Custombucker in the neck position delivers classic warm, thick PAF tone, while the Custom-Wound Seymour Duncan Distortion DDJ in the bridge delivers sizzling modern tone with plenty of chunk but lots of articulation and clarity, too. So, it allows you to flip between vintage and modern sounds easily! Additionally, because of the neck pickup’s lower output, it can function as a “clean channel” of sorts.

The Adams Jones Flying V Collector’s edition has it all: it looks cool, it’s super limited, and it’s an absolute sonic sledgehammer. We have no doubt it will inspire you to plug in, turn up, and rock out!
