Gretsch G6199 Billy-Bo Jupiter Thunderbird Electric Guitar

Rare Electric Guitar

The Billy-Bo is a modern version of the Jupiter Thunderbird designed in 1959 by Bo Diddley himself. Billy F. Gibbons fell in love with an original given to him by Bo Diddley, but added some of his own mojo to this new version that he created as his touring axe. The Billy-Bo features a heavily chambered mahogany body, one-piece mahogany neck, ultra-thin laminate maple top, TV Jones Power'Tron (neck) and Power'Tron "Plus" (bridge) pickups, pinned Adjusto-matic™ bridge, and Schaller Straplocks. It's a dirty, low-down rock guitar with serious credentials and a vibe that hasn't lessened in nearly 50 years.
 
It’s hard to find a guitar with more “mojo” than this one. Billy Gibbons worked closely with Gretsch and the late Bo Diddley to create a 21st century version of Bo’s famous Jupiter Thunderbird that was originally designed in 1959. The Billy-Bo is much more than a cool looking axe. This guitar plays great, and the T.V. Jones pickups produce fantastic tones for blues and rock. If you’re looking to try something completely different, the Billy-Bo is a great choice.
The Billy-Bo features a heavily chambered mahogany body, one-piece mahogany neck, ultra-thin laminate maple top, and TV Jones Power’Tron (neck) and Power’Tron “Plus” (bridge) pickups. The neck is relatively thin and has a very smooth feel. The tone of this instrument is surprisingly vintage for such a modern looking guitar. The action is set fairly aggressive making the Billy-Bo perfect for blues-rock and rock.
