Product Description

Gretsch G6199 Billy-Bo Firebird Red

A recreation of the famed guitar gifted to Billy F. Gibbons by Bo Diddley, this G6199 Billy-Bo is a stage-worthy guitar that the man himself takes on stage with ZZ Top when you just can’t bring yourself to take that uber rare original guitar out on tour with you! This model boasts two TV Jones Power’Tron pickups that pump out that classic sizzle while an adjustable bridge on a pinned base keep your intonation in check.
