The Story of the Bo Diddley "Jupiter Thunderbird, Cadillac &
Cigar Box Guitars."
If someone or somebody knows something I don't
Sometime back in the 60's or early 70's, I don't have an exact date or
even a point of reference. Elias McDaniel
AKA Bo Diddley who was a real innovator, decided to design himself some cool,
distinctive looking, futuristic guitars.
He felt that playing the same guitar that everyone else played was
counterproductive to his career. As a former band manager & concert
promoter I concur whole heartedly with what Bo was thinking.
Ed Roman is now recreating the Original Bo Diddley Cadillac Guitar
Ed Roman in Las Vegas is now constructing all three models.
Instead of making them set neck guitars, Ed has chosen to build these with the
absolute highest level of quality using modern - vintage electronics, high
quality woods and top grade bridges, tuners etc etc.
