Gibson / Gibson Custom Shop Explorer Bass - The Bug - Dusty Hill Collection / 1980's / White / Bass For Sale

Superb Explorer bass from the Gibson Custom Shop produced especially for Dusty Hill, bassist of ZZ Top. This bass was customized by him and renamed "The Bug" because of the steel fly glued to the headstock. This is the "CS 6", i.e. probably the sixth bass produced by the Gibson Custom Shop.

This exceptional instrument was played by Dusty Hill with ZZ Top for many years on stage, as evidenced by traces of wear and several videos of the bearded bassist on stage.

This is an exceptional and historic guitar. Only one "The Bug" exists in the world, and few basses on the market have been played so much by such an influential and important bassist. Directly from the collection of the late Dusty Hill.

A piece of history. A lot of stage wear show how hard it was played all over the world.

In a milieu where desirable objects are generally locked away in a safe or behind glass, Matthieu Lucas’ collection is a refreshing exception to the rule.
He represents a new generation of guitar lovers, for whom music comes first and the sound is more important than the serial number. Like any fine collection, Matthieu Lucas’ one has a speciality: he tracks down instruments that have belonged to artists, from Jeff Buckley’s Telecaster to Tal Farlow’s Gibson, not to mention Spot - one of the few sunbursts to be found in France and which belonged to a certain Joe Bonamassa.

Through perseverance, Matthieu managed to open doors that are generally kept well shut and gained access to instruments that were not even supposed to be sold. And true to the principle that the love of music comes first, Matthieu is not the type to prevent a guitarist from enjoying his or her prized jewels.

Out of that desire to share, he finally created the Matt’s Guitar Shop showroom, a special place for selling and trading that gives Paris back its reputation for excellence in the area of beautiful guitars. Inspired and inspiring instruments, which continue to bring beautiful notes to the ears of music lovers.
