"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. Rock luminaries Billy F Gibbons and Bo Diddley have joined forces to bring you the Billy-Bo, which was first designed in '59 by the talented Bo Diddley himself!
