Bare Bones Billy-Bo

Recommended Posts

First set neck build....obviously inspired by the Billy-Bo. I’ve been working on this one off and on for quite a while. I’ve changed my mind on the pickups, controls, tailpiece, and finish multiple times so I guess I won’t say anything about that since it’s likely to change before I finish J

It’ll will have a Wilkinson roller bridge, ebony fretboard, open backed Sperzel Trim-Lok tuners, and a zero fret.

Raw Sipo body

That is one of the best bookmatch I've seen in a while.

Thanks...got it from someone on ebay a long time ago. Whoever it was offered free resawing so I bought a slab that they bookmatched into 3 tops for me. I can't remember who it was unfortunately.

Yep...loved it. Shout out to Rev Billy G.
