Wilco have announced a new collection in collaboration with outdoor lifestyle brand Best Made Co. The collection includes a box set that features all 10 of Wilco’s albums on vinyl, signed by Jeff Tweedy. The box set costs around $1,200 however, and is “made with fir ply and a birch handle then finished by hand with marine spar varnish. Each box is laser-engraved and embossed with Best Made and Wilco’s logos and includes a back compartment to hold the limited-edition Wilco pennant and bandana as part of the ensemble,” per the Best Made catalog. That’s a fancy box.
Among the other offerings in the collection are Wilco bandanas, a Wilco pennant and, most peculiar of all, an axe. The axe is titled “The Gray Ghost,” inspired by the album cover for A Ghost Is Born. The collection coincides with a performance by Wilco guitarist Nels Cline at Best Made Co.’s Tribeca location, where he’ll also be giving a guitar lesson. Proceeds from the event will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.
