GERRY SHEPHARD "STAR GUITAR" TRIBUTE
One of the most dynamic and eye-catching guitars of the ‘Glam Rock’ era, Gerry Shephard's "Star Guitar" has endured as a striking, outlandish piece of guitar design that continues to inspire fans and attract attention some 40 years later!
Shephard had two “Star Guitars” custom made, the first finished in metallic gold and the second in metallic silver, each taking the general design in a different direction and incorporating different pickup configurations, equipment and headstock design base dupon archive material of the original instruments. It's time to shine!
