Crazy Horse Guitar
The Crazy Horse Les Paul was the first guitar I did with the Gibson custom shop. It is a custom Les Paul that is painted up like the 1966 Ford Bronco I built on TRUCKS! called Crazy Horse. The Crazy Horse Bronco was built in tribute the the legendary Big Oly bronco that Parnelli Jones and Bill Stroppe drove to victory many times in the Baja 500 and Baja 1000.
The guitar not only features the House of Colors purple paint and silver stripe that we used on the Bronco, but there is also a tire track of the actual Parnelli Jones tire tread going across the face of the guitar, to give it that “run over” feel. The truss rod cover has my name engraved in it, and there was a limited run of 25 of these slated. How many were actually built, I don’t know. This particular guitar was the first one made and it has been signed by legendary Baja racers Ivan Stewart and James Duff. One of these days I’ll get Parnelli Jones to sign it too. Best part is… it plays like a mother!!
