The image of Billy Zoom on stage with his wide-legged
stance, satisfied grin and vintage Gretsch® Silver Jet™
guitar is well documented in the annals of American punk rock lore.
A co-founder of the band, "X" from Los Angeles, California in the late
'70s during a time when pop culture was undergoing a radical change,
what started as a small underground cult following quickly grew to international
radio airplay and sold-out packed venues around the globe. The unmistakable
playing style and tones generated from Billy's guitar rig has been a
potent ingredient to the overall sound that has helped sustain the band's
career for more than 30 years.
In honor of his longevity in the world music community and contribution
to the legacy of Gretsch guitars,
we are very proud to offer the G6129BZT Billy Zoom Tribute Silver
