Just got this one on trade for a PRS. And it is a real nice one. Had to give it some pretty hard thought to decide to list it. But still need to downsize the collection. Weighs in a 8lbs 5oz and sounds amazing. Very resonant. The flames are extremely 3D and deep when viewed about 45 degree angle. It also has the red shade under the pickguard and washer.

The original owner got this one new from Wildwood in 2020. They are currently selling for $7249.

Deal of the Day: $SOLD shipped. Mint condition.

It goes to Reverb tonight.

Here is the description from Wildwood:


Gibson's original "Burst" Les Pauls are perhaps the most sought-after, legendary vintage guitars of all time. They are renowned for their beauty and snowflake-like uniqueness. After all, each one had a different level of flame in the maple top, and each finish received a different amount of UV light, which drastically changes the finish. So, no two are alike, and that's the beauty of the burst.

And there aren't many originals to compare, because Gibson made less than 2,000 Les Pauls between 1958 and 1960. Near the tail end of that run, they started putting slimmer necks on them. These guitars had lightning-fast feel that appealed to lots of rock and blues guitar players in the '60s. One of these players, a young British man named Eric Clapton, touched off the British blues revolution and the Les Paul renaissance by playing his '60--nicknamed "Beano"--on John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers' album of the same name.

Of course, an original '60 Les Paul will run you somewhere in the neighborhood of three-hundred grand. Since not all of us have that kind of money lying around in our couch cushions, we decided to ask our friends at the Gibson Custom Shop to make Wildwood an affordable vintage recreation that captures the mojo of those original slim-necked '60 LPs. We're proud to present the fruits of their labors: the Wildwood Spec 160 Les Paul Standard.
