From Wide Sky -
After having made only acoustic guitars I decided I wanted to branch out and make electrics too, this was the first to be added to the Wide Sky family. Inspired by my love of Gibsons the P125 is sort of a cross between the old ES125 3/4 and a Les Paul. I finished the first P125 just in time to be in the Boutique Guitar Showcase at Summer NAMM 2018 and it just happened to find it’s way onto Reverb’s “Coolest Guitars at SNAMM” list!
A versatile small bodied electric guitar, built to deliver that gritty old electric blues rock sound that I love so much and finished to look the part as well. It’s more than that though and like I’ve learned with how people are using the PL1 I’m sure this will go easily all over the musical map.
You have a choice of pickups, P-90s or humbuckers, or both. I feel very fortunate to be working with Cutis Novak and he’s come up with something really special for these guitars. With the P-90s you can howl but also dial in a really great warm jazz tone. The humbuckers get a cleaner more transparent tone to work with and the two volume knobs are push/pull pots so that you can split the coils on each humbucker adding a whole other layer of tonal possibilities. I’ve connected the tone pots with replica Bumblebee capacitors from Emerson. They are wired 50s style, meaning the tone controls receive their signal from the output of the volume pot, rather than the input. The position of the volume pot affects the tone control, so the tone will change as you increase the volume.
“He’s really gone all the way to making this to be the absolute best version of that sort of americana, classic, rootsy, bluesy sort of guitar that he can. He clearly understands this in a way that I haven’t seen before, I’ve seen others try and do guitars in this area and seem to stylistically miss the mark. The feel is here, the sound is here, the design is here. Really a fantastic modern classic rendition.” – Jamie Gale, curator of The Boutique Guitar Showcase
