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.

On Black Midi's Cavalcade, Geordie Greep’s fretwork is an example of the 6-string as a capable component as much as a solo instrument, never completely stealing the show.

Popular music and mainstream tastes may be more fractured than ever, but the guitar continues to thrive.

As we soft launch into the new year, I’m not waiting for the requisite guitar obituary in the news. It’s not going to happen again anytime soon. Why? Because as far as the mainstream media is concerned, our beloved instrument is not only dead, it's irrelevant to the point of not even being an afterthought. When the New York Times published their most recent albums of the year list, there was barely a guitar-based recording to be found. Still, there is not only hope, but also cause for jubilation.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
