ZZ Top’s bearded frontmen certainly have made some interesting selections when it comes to on-stage instrumentation. I don’t know about you, but other than a ZZ Top show, I have personally never seen a fuzzy, sheepskin guitar or bass.
The Gibson Guitars website has a current story about these famous instruments and the man behind the creation of some of the widely-recognized axes in the business.
Matthew Klein of the Gibson Custom Shop is the man behind the scenes who is responsible for the creation of these unique instruments which have helped the Texas trio define their unique look.
It will be interesting to see what kind of unique guitars ZZ Top and the Gibson Custom Shop will come up with next if they decide they need another new look for the stage.
