    Hi,

    I came across this Hollowbody 2 Artist Package from 2004 in a very good condition which has been upgraded with some nice stuff for the looks but also with so called 57/08 "Wildwood Prototype" Humbuckers instead of the original Archtops. The dealer says that these are early 57/08s. Has anyone ever heard of them and could tell me something about it?
    Plus is there anything you should be concerned about a 2004 model? Like a different piezo or something? Because I am really considering getting this one, but I am just pretty unfamiliar with these early models.

    Here is a link to the guitar:

    Thanks!

    1-That's a nice looking piece.
    2-57/08 are great pups, although "Archtop"s are my fav.
    3-Early 2000's HB's are top notch, when I look at used I pay attention to that period.
    4-No binding gives that one the Uniqueness Award.
    5- ....... Did I say that was a nice looking piece?

    Good luck with your future purchase.

    You have no concerns with that era HB.
    Buy away - it looks fantastic.

    Fantastic looking guitar. Those pickups will be very PAF sounding. I’d hop on that in a heartbeat.

    Love 57/08s!

    I think the WW version was slightly under wound versus the standard rating at the time. Think of them as 57/08LT :D

    The only concern I would have is somebody else buying it before you get off the fence. If the money was in my budget, it'd be gone.
