GRETSCH CUSTOM SHOP KORINA CADDY BO RELIC MASTER BUILT BY STEPHEN STERN

The Caddy Bo is back, baby! From the mind of our CEO, Andrew Yonke, and the bench of Gretsch Custom Shop Masterbuilder Stephen Stern comes our second Custom Shop Korina Caddy Bo Relic, finished this time with aged parchment pickguard and binding, but still korina-ed to the bone. Try as he might, Nathaniel can’t say no to this Bo.

From the mind of our CEO, Andrew Yonke, and the bench of Gretsch Custom Shop Masterbuilder Stephen Stern, comes this Custom Shop Korina Caddy Bo Relic, a handmade, vintage-inspired electric korina-ed to the bone. 

In a recent conversation with Stern, our CEO Andrew Yonke mentioned his love for korina and the ground-breaking, mod styling of caddy and billy bo guitars. The Gretsch Masterbuilder took it upon himself to do the rest and turned out this retro masterpiece, equipped with an Adjust-O-Matic bridge and "G" cutout tailpiece, inlaid script logo, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, and dual ThroBak SLE-101 humbucking pickups. 

But, as Stephen Stern insists, building this was–and always is–a team effort. Stern jokes that he's "merely the conductor of the orchestra," and credits the Gretsch Custom Shop's success to the talented team aiding the Masterbuilders in each part of a guitar's construction. 

In this particular case, it's essential to mention the Custom Shop's dedication to sourcing the best woods available, the right way. Stern constructed the body and top of this Bo with solid korina. He used a one-piece korina blank for the neck and beautiful Brazilian rosewood for the fingerboard, and all was ethically sourced through the proper channels to ensure both quality and authenticity. 

As with music itself, the best always comes from a marriage of minds working in harmony. It starts with an idea, then the drive to develop and pursue it, followed finally by the know-how to execute. It happens the same way in the everyday collaboration that makes the Gretsch Custom Shop what it is, and the Korina Caddy Bo, just like a beautiful melody, is proof.

MORE ON THE KORINA CADDY BO

Korina, korina! Masterbuilt by Stephen Stern in collaboration with our CEO Andrew Yonke, this wild Gretsch Custom Shop Caddy Bo is a team dream.
