The initials B.B. was the title of a Serge Gainsbourg song. It was also the name of one of Wandré’s first electric guitars. In both cases, they refer to the same emblem of the sixties: Brigitte Bardot.
Her sexy curves were certainly an inspiration for the body shape, on which Wandré experimented with all kinds of unusual finishes, like candle smoke. Long before Travis Bean, Wandré used aluminum for the neck, and plastic for the headstock. Just like Bardot, this guitar was very liberated for its time. More info and pictures at fetish guitars.

This is the mugshot of an unused, like new 1958 Fender Stratocaster. The strat is in such great and unseen condition that it just got sold at auctions for a record $46,875. Unfortunately for the new owner, the wonderful effects of aging, most valuable feature of a 58 strat, were not included in the sale.
