Anyone with working eardrums can tell that Wildwood Spec Les Pauls are tone machines. However, anyone with working back muscles can also tell you that a Les Paul can feel awfully heavy when you're on hour three of gig or jam session. A lot of that simply has to do with the way Les Pauls are built. Solid maple and mahogany make sweet, sweet sounds together, but they are also both fairly heavy woods. Now, we're pleased to announce that you can get all the Wildwood Spec Gibson tone you crave in a lightweight package: the Wildwood Spec Chambered Les Paul Standard.
The Wildwood Spec Chambered Les Paul has the same specifications as our other Les Pauls, with one important subtraction. It has strategically placed chambers in its mahogany body that reduce weight and have a delightful effect on the guitar's tone. While chambered Les Pauls might not have quite as much sustain as their solidbody brethren, they do present a whole new flavor of Gibson tone. They have a bit more acoustic-like touch-sensitivity, which makes for a wonderfully dynamic playing experience. They also gain a wonderfully articulate, woody, percussive attack, and a bit of extra sweetness and chime in the highs.
If you're a fan of Custom Shop Gibson tone, chances are that the Wildwood Spec Chambered Les Paul Standard's sound will inspire you in lots of new and exciting ways. And, it will make your back muscles happy! We're proud to present these lightweight monsters, and we know they will help you make lots of joyous noise.
