There are few guitars in Rock and Roll that are as damn cool as the Gretsch Billy-Bo! This is a 21st century take on the elusive Gretsch Jupiter Thunderbird and is based on a guitar given to Billy F. Gibbons by Bo Diddley many years ago, hence the name, Billy-Bo! This guitar comes with original certificate and is in excellent condition. It puts out a crystalline tone that is familiar to Gretsch fans due to it's chambered body, but with more bite and snap!.
