Bo Diddley Jupiter Guitars

Rare Electric Guitar

This beautifuly-built six year old but brand new guitar has all of the good looks of the original 1959 visionary Bo Diddley solid body model. It weighs in at just 6.30 lbs. and has a very comfortable nut width of just under 1 11/16 inches and a scale length of 24 3/4 inches. Chambered mahogany body finished in black with a three-ply maple top finished in Firebird red. One-piece mahogany neck (also finished in black) with a very comfortable medium profile, and rosewood fretboard with 22 thin frets and pearloid Neo-Classic "thumbnail" position markers. Headstock with black overlay and inlaid pearloid Gretsch "T-roof" logo.
The body has triple binding on the top and the neck and the headstock have single binding. Individual open-back Grover StaTite tuners with oval metal buttons. Serial number "JT05 118031" and "Billy Bo" signature in white on the back of the headstock. One Gretsch TV Jones Power'Tron pickup in the neck position and one Gretsch TV Jones Power'Tron 'Plus' pickup in the bridge position, with outputs of 5.00k and 7.90k respectively. Black Plexi pickguard. Four controls (two individual volume controls and master tone control on the lower treble bout and master volume control on upper treble bout) plus three-way pickup selector switch on upper bass bout.

I just played this guitar today at a local music store and I was floored. I plugged it into an Orange Rocker 30 half stack and was able to get some great, raucous tones. This guitar was so easy to play I could shred on it! Anyone who can get this guitar who's thinking about it, just get it. You won't be disappointed
