Gibson Custom 2023 '58 Les Paul Standard Lightly Aged, Wildwood Burst
What are three names that carry a huge amount of respect in the world of guitar? Wildwood, Gibson Murphy Lab, and Danocaster. What three names does this guitar happen to have in common? Wildwood, Gibson Murphy Lab, and Danocaster.
This unbelievable Murphy Lab R8 is a Wildwood spec relic that is as close to the real thing as we've ever seen. Add in the extra aging done by Danocaster, one of the most respected builders of Relic guitars in the world, and you've got one of the most realistic and, frankly, most incredible Les Pauls we've ever seen.
With a larger '58 style neck, small, vintage style frets, an gorgeous faded "Tomato" style burst (Wildwood Burst here), and hand-wound Custombucker pickups, this guitar screams 'vintage' from head to toe, even down to the wear on the screws, the incredibly intricate checking, and the slightly discolored logo, a telltale vintage characteristic.
Whereas a lot of relics feel like disparate ideas strung together to represent what people think an old guitar is, this one just feels... old. Nail hit right on the head. This guitar is strung with 10's, top wrapped for added gnarliness.Serial #811437 comes with the original hard shell case and certificate.
