Full Specs Below from the original Wildwood Youtube Video of this exact guitar being demoed by Greg Koch. Also listed below the photos here.


NOTE: Please Read for Detail - This is Total Speculation On My Part Here:
This may possibly an R9 or even an R0 that mistakenly was marked as an R8.


My Reasoning:



1.
The guitar has a 58' serial number, the COA confirms it as a 58' and the control cavity has an R8 Stamp - So officially it is an R8.

2. I do not feel
the neck carve is that of an R8. Wildwood's description is: Neck Shape: 30k over 60 (averaging 1st fret .850 -
12th fret .916).
I confirmed the neck measurements are accurate. Substantially smaller than any R8 I've ever come across

3. On the specs from the video, it lists it as a VOS finish. However it is full gloss and the hardware IS NOT VOS. You can clearly see this in the Demo Video and the photos. Thus another inconsistency on the details leading me to believe it was mislabeled along the way during production.
