Built by Master Builder Stephen Stern, the Gretsch Custom Shop Bayou Roundup is truly unreal, as it is covered in alligator hide and has several unique appointments, such as a swamp-themed belt buckle at the bridge, alligator inlays and a gator head on the headstock.

In the video below, Stern discusses the inspiration behind the Gretsch Custom Shop Bayou Roundup and time it took to build.

The one-of-a-kind custom shop ax is available at Chicago Music Exchange.
