Rock N’ Roll Relics Gilby Clarke Model


The Gilby Clarke Model features a nitrocellulose finish and black and white flag design on the front with black sides and back. The idea for this design came from Gilby who was inspired by his friend and Detroit guitar hero Wayne Kramer from the MC5. The guitar is aged on the medium to heavy side with a hand-signed headstock. “Being a big fan of vintage guitars, I love the look and feel of a worn in looking guitar,” says Gilby. The body is a light-weight Ash, neck and fretboard is a tinted Maple with a comfortable broken-in feel and pickups are a set of D. Allen Specials.

“This is a great playing & sounding tele. I’m able to stay clean for a stones vibe, but hit the bridge pick up for some pure rock n roll gain. I’ve been playing the shit out of it lately “-Gilby Clarke
