Attention, Wildwoodians! To celebrate the arrival of Wildwood Spec 1959 Flying Vs, we asked our friend Tom Murphy to give one his signature aging treatment. If you're not familiar with Tom, he's the guy rock stars call for repair work and relic'ing, and he's something of a legend in our industry. This particular Flying V is a sterling example of his incredible talent. It's just...otherworldly. It looks and feels just like a real vintage V, so now you can have all the vibe of a real vintage '59 without having to take on a second mortgage! We're proud to showcase such a jaw-dropping, heart-stopping instrument, and we are envious of the lucky picker who gets to take it home.
To V or Not to V
To paraphrase a little-known English playwright and poet, "To V, or not to V, that is hardly a question: especially when the V is of the Wildwood Spec variety." William Shakespeare may not have actually said that, but the sentiment is still accurate: there is no question as to whether or not you should V, because the new Wildwood Spec 1959 Flying Vs from Gibson Custom are cooler than Miles Davis eating a popsicle in the middle of a snowstorm in Greenland.
