The Gretsch Billy-Bo electric guitar is an advanced and modernistic variant of the 'Jupiter Thunderbird' guitar which was made by Bo Diddley himself in the year 1959. Billy F. Gibbons developed a huge affinity and love for this original guitar given to him by Bo Diddley (Bo Diddley is considered to be a 'Rock legend' of the present and the past), but he performed some amendments in its design and imparted a few of his own mojo to this fresh edition that he created as his 'touring axe'. The Billy-Bo electric guitar characterizes a heavy chambered body made from Mahogany tree wood, single piece mahogany neck, Power'Tron "Plus" pickups (bridge) & TV Jones Power'Tron neck , extremely-slim laminate maple crest, Schaller Straplocks and a pinned adaptable (Adjusto-matic™) bridge part. It is a low-down electric rock guitar with amazing vibe that has not decreased in about fifty years.

  • Later varied and added-up by Billy F Gibbons

  • One-piece mahogany neck

  • Power'Tron "Plus" pickups (bridge) & TV Jones Power'Tron neck

  • extremely-slim laminate maple head
