Gretsch G6199TSL-SMG Billy-Bo Jupiter Thunderbird
(Fuller's Exclusive) Smoke Gray/Violet Metallic

Rock luminaries Billy F Gibbons and Bo Diddley have joined forces to bring you a 21st-century version of the elusive Gretsch® Jupiter Thunderbird now dubbed the Billy-Bo which was designed in '59 by the talented Bo Diddley himself!

"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.

This is a Gretsch Special Run of 16 guitars in the Smoke Gray/Violet Metallic color scheme made exclusively for Fuller's Guitar in 2021. Included in the case is a certificate of authenticity, chrome strap locks, case keys, Gretsch OK card, warranty card, and Gretsch guitar guide.
