Jason Smith is one of the Custom Shop's newest Masterbuilders, which is great news, because that means I get to play guitars like this Wildwood 10 Tele for a long time! Speaking of "a long time," I could see myself settling down with this Tele. It is quite articulate and woody in its attack, with lots of ensuing note bloom. The bridge pickup has warm, clear low end to go with biting mids and Joe Strummer-approved jangle and clang in the highs. The neck pickup is warm and sweet, and it has a livelier disposition than normal. Its highs are open, its midrange mellow and woody, and its low-end deep and clear like an untouched mountain lake. Anyone looking for a vintage-voiced Tele with a little extra gristle will love this jammin' Jason Smith-built masterpiece!
