Press Release: The Man, or better yet, the living Legend, needs no introduction. Known the world over for his unmistakable style, his love for all things Custom, cutting-edge guitar designs, jaw-dropping Custom Cars and Hotrods, and generally for being the best incarnation of COOL, it was only a matter of time and alignment of the stars before BILLY F GIBBONS and WILD CUSTOM GUITARS crossed paths.
With graphics inspired by the Rev’s latest Hotroded ‘34 Ford Coupe “WHISKEY RUNNER”, and loaded with our GYROCK Pickup System sporting BFG’s signature pickup set (the classic Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates & Red Devil, along with our custom wound Humbucker dubbed “The Grizzly” by the man himself), ultra-lightweight construction and a Custom COA (with a limited hand signed run), she’s as Bold and Spicy as a Texas Hot Sauce!
In Billy’s own words: “Now to get down to thrashing’ on this thing…! WoooooooWeeeeee…!”
FEATURING THE GYROCK PICKUP SYSTEM
“This is a game changer!” Richard Fortus, Guns N’ ROSES
Changing your guitar tone has always meant rewiring your guitar with new pickups. It’s not the case anymore. GYROCK© is a revolutionary concept that enables you to load different pickups on a single guitar and to switch from one pickup to another in a split second. Billy F. Gibbons is known for playing mainly on the bridge pickup. We’ve redesigned the Gyrock pickup system to be as close as possible to his playing ways. GYROCK© is a patented technology that has been developed by Wild Customs to create a groundbreaking musical experience.
