This series was launched after building the BOTAFOGO -SPECIAL- guitar for our buddy Jay Leno. That guitar received such great reviews that we decided to introduce a model inspired by it, The Bonneville. Like the original built for Jay, yours can be customized after your favorite race car! To hear what this machine sounds like, check out this awesome demo by the amazing Paul Jackson Jr. when we sat down with Jay!
