It was supposed to be its blatant, even grotesque copy. This is what they asked me to do and I remembered very well when trying to catch, traced by the lines of the left side of the template I had prepared, the silhouette of a popular 1960s Cadillac. I could not see it and I even started hating it a bit, that odd shape I had to create. That was the source of inspiration for the makers of this Gretsch, known as “Billy–Bo”. I could not glimpse the stylised silhouette of the Cadillac until I finished the guitar. Which is exactly when I realised how beautiful that car was with its “flippers” and how bad I wanted to build a new one. Let’s Play.
