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.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
