Wild Customs Guitars Unveils the Billy F. Gibbons Special

Wild Customs Billy Gibbons

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!


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.

Whether you are looking for rich, authentic humbucking tones or nuanced single coil sounds, the Gyrock can seamlessly master most of sonic territories.

While Annie Clark was named the 26th greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone in 2023, she couldn’t care less about impressing an athletic stamp on either her sound or her image.

On her eighth studio release, the electroacoustic art-rock guitarist and producer animates an extension of the strange and singular voice she’s been honing since her debut in 2007.

“Did you grow up Unitarian?” Annie Clark asks me. We’re sitting in a control room at Electric Lady Studios in New York’s West Village, and I’ve just explained my personal belief system to her, to see if Clark, aka St. Vincent, might relate and return the favor. After all, does she not possess a kind of sainthood worth inquiring about?

Mdou Moctar has led his Tuareg crew around the world, but their hometown performances in Agadez, Niger, last year were their most treasured.

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
