    These were a custom FSR run for Fuller's Guitars in Texas, They specialized in FSR Billy-Bo limited runs. They also had several batches of White Penguin Billy-Bos, and some Flame Maple, Red Sparkle, and a spectacular Ice-Blue Metallic. I was going to collect the whole set but my lottery ticket didn't win.....

    I don't think they did a pine one, but they did do a "round up" version with the G brand and cowboy motif. I had just had my Brown Bear Billy Bo made or I would've bought that one. I still love those.

    I didn't see the Knotty Pine one, that would have been interesting. Did it have the G brand?

    An Amazon listing says only 16 were made. That can't be right, could it?

    16 is the standard batch number for an FSR order.
