This is one of the rarest guitars out there on the market, as it is both a signature and tribute model. It is dedicated to Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top and Bo Diddley, as well. That`s the reason it`s called Billy-Bo Jupiter. Thunderbird comes from it`s 1950s-styled body shape. Thunderbird was inspired by the 1950s and 1960s cars with big tailfins. It is a solid-bodied guitar made completely of mahogany. It comes only in Firebird Red with black pickguard, glossy finish and chrome hardware. Bridge section is made up of adjust-o-matic bridge in the front and a trapezoid tailpiece in the back. Pickups are Bo Diddley`s 1959 humbuckers with Billy Gobbons` modifications. Bolt-on mahogany neck is topped with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard.
