Wildwood Guitars • Gibson Custom Shop Lee Roy Parnell 1959 Les Paul Standard • SN: LRP9031
Lee Roy's signature model is a sight to behold. It features a custom finish dubbed "Abilene Burst" (an homage to his hometown), and it highlights the beautiful grain on the figured maple top. Two underwound '57 classic pickups produce sweet vintage PAF sounds that will inspire you to play for hours and hours. Speaking of sweet sounds, Lee Roy asked Gibson Custom to do something a little different for his signature model: would they put a bit of extra wood in the pickup cavities to give it a bit of extra vintage-style woodiness? They said yes, and it paid incredible dividends. Because of the extra wood, the pickups capture more of the guitar's acoustic character, the guitar feels more responsive, and it has glorious woody midrange that will take you back in time to 1959. The Lee Roy Parnell 1959 Les Paul doesn't skimp on the ergonomic side of things, either. It has a contoured cutaway to allow for maximum access to the upper frets and beyond, which is a godsend for slide players. As fun as it is to take slide solos up past the 22nd fret, you won't want to because the neck is so comfortable. It's a custom '59 profile that Leroy worked with the Custom Shop to create, and it has a lovely chunky feel that makes you want to cancel all your appointments for the day and adventure across the fretboard. We're proud to showcase such an inspiring signature model from our friends at Gibson Custom. We invite you to take one for a spin and experience the sound of Abilene. Once you do, we're sure the Lee Roy Parnell 1959 Les Paul Standard will help you make joyous noise for a long time.
AGN News: Roland and Korg hit with big fines in UK for price-fixing
News From London that Roland and Korg have been fined a combined total of £5.5m, which equates to $6.9 million US dollars, by the Competition and Markets Authority in the UK in 2 separate cases of price fixing. The CMA hit Fender with a £4.5m fine back in January, bringing the total number of cases to 5 and and the total fines to £13.7m. Also caught in the crossfire was UK musical instrument retailer GAK who have also been fined more than £250,000. The judgement was levied after a price-fixing agreement between GAK and Yamaha was disclosed to the CMA by Yamaha in exchange for the latter’s immunity from fines for being the first to bring the conduct to the Authority’s attention. This disclosure subsequently led to the CMA sending warning letters to dozens of other instrument suppliers and retailers and publishing an open letter to the industry writ large, reminding them of their legal responsibilities regarding Retail price management. The Competition and Markets Authority are also using a dedicated online tool they developed that automatically monitors price levels amongst retailers and detects any suspicious pricing activity.

Fender Limited Edition HM Super Strat Demo & Review | An 80's Heavy Metal Classic Comes Back!
An awesome blast from the past from Fender, the Limited Edition HM Strat has arrived. Announced at NAMM 2020, these guitars bring back the high-octane madness from the Late '80's-Early '90's with high-quality construction, high-gain pickups, and high-inducing colors. Seen here in Frozen Yellow and Ice Blue (also available in Bright White and Flash Pink) these guitars confidently equip a Floyd Rose Special trem, coil-splittable bridge humbucker, 17' radius, 24 frets, light-weight body, Gotoh tuners, contoured heel, and jumbo frets: a recipe for metal if we've ever heard one; however, while this guitar is built for screaming speed, it's great for classic clean Stratocaster tones as well.
