Gretsch G6199 Billy-Bo Jupiter Thunderbird, "G" Cutout Tailpiece, TV Jones, Rosewood Fingerboard, Firebird Red 2410508815
"Some time ago, Bo gave me the guitar as a gift. It was during the recent ZZ Top recordings, when the engineering crew and I snaked through the guitar vault searching for that certain-something guitar, and there it was! We didn't risk subjecting such a rare instrument to the rigors of the road. So this new reproduction model was recreated with some BFG mojo thrown in for good measure. It's now the main stage guitar with a groove." - Billy F Gibbons.
