Billy Gibbons has been a legend on the guitar scene for over 4 decades. He picked up his first guitar in 1963, and gained notoriety (and even praise from Hendrix) quickly. He has several iconic pieces of gear in his rig, including the furry Gretsch Billy Bo and Gibson 1959 Pearly Gates Les Paul. Gibbons, a fan of proven consistency, uses several different reliable amps and some unique vintage pedals as well to obtain his tone.
