Love it or hate it. A rare example of the limited first production run from 1999. There were only 20 of these guitars originally manufactured, this being No 20. Firebird Red. Comes with separate truss rod cover personally hand-signed by Bo Diddley plus the stock signature engraved truss rod cover. Tags, tools, history and original pickguard. Very good condition. Custom Gretsch hard case.
Bo Diddley rocked fans with his sterling chops, electrifying showmanship and outrageous guitars for more than 50 years. The G6138 is a faithful reproduction of the famous rectangular guitar Gretsch built especially for him in 1958.
Semi-hollow body, three-piece rock maple neck, ebony fingerboard with pearl dot inlays, 1957-style headstock, dual High Sensitive Filter’Tron™ humbucking pickups, Adjusto-Matic™ bridge, G-cutout tailpiece and gold hardware.
