Fab Guitars Billy Childish Cadillac

This is a very rare special order Fab Guitars Billy Childish edition. This was commissioned by the previous owner to the same specification as the original limited edition of 13 guitars, crafted after the original Buff Medways Cadillac made for Billy Childish in 1999.

We love unusual guitars at Motomusic and this one is really special. With a two-year wait for Fab Guitar's amazing instruments, this is a great opportunity to get your hands on something both unique and collectible. Ours is in excellent condition, with just some tiny marks at the top of the headstock (pictured)

The Billy Childish Cadillac was designed by Billy Childish, and is a lightweight, thin solid body guitar, delivering a growling P-90’s sound.

The body shape is roughly inspired by a photo on the back of a Bo Diddley album sleeve. While the oversized headstock shape comes from an old Vox guitar Billy had lying around the house.

The body is covered in red leatherette with a white piping side trim, reminiscing of those amazing German beat guitars of the sixties.

A super cool guitar, sold with its original quality hard shell case.
