THE “MEXICAN BLACKBIRD” THUNDERBIRD 58

“CARS, GUITARS, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN”

AUTOMOTIVE by Wild Customs is a line of high end instruments paying homage to iconic car designs. We’ve always been car enthusiasts at WILD CUSTOMS. A lot of our instruments draw inspiration from classic cars, muscle cars, racing cars, hyper cars, concept cars… Needless to mention the role of the Kustom Kulture in supporting and fostering our creativity. Color, shapes, lines, materials, customizations are inexhaustible sources of inspiration for the team and it appears obvious to launch a brand new line of instruments… A brand new line of instruments that we’ve naturally called “AUTOMOTIVE by Wild Customs”

THE MEXICAN BLACKBIRD

Billy Gibbons (ZZ top / USA) is an avid car collector and custom car enthusiast with an extensive collection that includes 1948 Cadillac Series 62 (known as CadZZilla), 1962 Chevrolet Impala (known as Slampala), 1950 Ford Business Coupe, and a 1958 Ford Thunderbird 5 (known as the Mexican Blackbird). Our Billybones Thunderbird is a tribute to that unmistakable custom car.

The November 2014 issue of Guitar World magazine features an interview of Gibbons and fellow guitarist Jeff Beck about their mutual appreciation of “cars, guitars, and everything in between”. The “Mexican Blackbird” definitely yearns to be that“everything”
