Last year, Wild Custom teamed up with ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons for a pretty eye-catching electric guitar – the Billy F. Gibbons Special Artist Edition, which had been appointed a unique, pickup-rotating Gyrock system.

Now, the brand has returned with a “more affordable” Standard Edition version of Gibbons’ signature six-string. We put “more affordable” in quotation marks, because it’s still priced at $6,882 on the brand’s official Reverb page.
