Gretsch G6199TW Billy-Bo Jupiter Thunderbird Western Orange Fuller’s Exclusive


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 32 guitars in the Western Orange color scheme made exclusively for Fuller’s Guitar in 2023. Included in the case is a certificate of authenticity, gold strap locks, case keys, Gretsch OK card, warranty card.
