Electromatic Bo?

1

Saw a picture on facebook today. Looked like a print ad. Five different versions of Electromatic Billy-Bo. Is this a thing? Is this gonna BE a thing? Or is this an idea that never made it to production?

Because IMO, it definitely SHOULD be a thing.

Never mind. A little more sluething tells me it's a (well done) fake ad.

But Gretsch should still totally do it, tho.

3

You mean this? It was a photoshop joke made by a former member here years ago. Blow up the picture and read the fine print and it becomes obvious. They were never real.

We wish it was a thing. I have the rectangle bo diddly and love it. See the nashville round up pics.

Ah, the Chonny Special! Who wouldn't want one?

For some reason, that body shape always reminds me of a '57 Chevy.

6

Yes, built4speed, that was it. I would totally buy one, tho probly not the Chonny.

Now to figure-out if I need to make a bolt-on version myowndamnself.

Englishman on Gretsch Talk built Drum Bob a custom Billy Bo.

I'll look for the thread after site gets back up (running an upgrade apparently.)

There was a Billy Bo knockoff on the Eastwood site awhile ago.

Fully agree. That is a great playing guitar.

I liked the look of these, very Cadillac 59! Almost worth buying an Electro for the neck!

I'd buy an electromatic Billy Bo! I think it's a missed opportunity they didn't make them.

Sigh... I've wanted the Chonny-bo since he created that graphic!
