The Joe Maphis Guitar

It’s hard to think about hot rods and not have a cool music track fill your mind. Hot guitar solos and spinnin’ tires just seem to go together! Without a doubt some of the most famous hot rod guitar work came from a guy by the name of Joe Maphis, who laid down the smoking guitar on Hot Rod Lincoln! Tag along as Stacey takes you on a different kind of barn find and documents the restoration of a one of a kind guitar-owned by the “King of the strings” himself, and a fitting tribute to his legacy. After that, we’ll add some much needed cargo space to our Gladiator build, and dig into the world of manual transmissions… so much… so little time!
