This super cool looking ’50s retro space vibe Wild Customs Alice Animal Impala signature model, just looks sweet as pie. With a stunning Orange Flake finish and bags of vintage style!
This is one fine looking guitar and I’m loving that Orange Flake finish, it just looks so yummy. Wild Customs are a boutique guitar maker and amongst their list of customers you will find Billy Gibbons and Adam Clayton. The new Alice Animal Impala signature model, won’t be for everyone, but if you want to stand out from the crowd, then it is just perfect.
It is a Custom Shop creation and uses a chambered mahogany body with maple top, as well as a maple neck and a rosewood fretboard. I’m loving that custom celluloid shell geometric-shaped white pickguard with the pin striping and also the way the controls are inset into the guitars body. The devil is in the detail, and all the little touches like the subtle fret markers and headstock stripe motif, juts all add up for me. I think it’s ace!
Hardware includes a set of open-gear Schertler tuners, a tune-o-matic-style bridge which is paired with a stop bar tail piece. The pickups are a set of Seymour Duncan SH-6 with custom pickup covers, again with a sweet design on them. These are wired up using a chrome three-way selector switch and matching chrome master controls for the tone and volume.
It’s certainly not cheap, but it is beautiful and I would rock the hell out of it everyday of the week!
