Yes, there's no doubt he "deserves" a signature model! [thumbup] But, maybe just "Freddy King" on the TRC
would be enough...since I'm pretty sure his guitars were "stock!" Maybe, Gibson would use Ebony on
the fingerboards, of his 345 and 355...since THAT would have been "stock," back then. [biggrin]
Another possibility could be to have his signature, engraved in the fingerboard, close to the neck
joint, somewhat like the Martin 000-28 EC model, with Clapton's? Just a thought...

Huge Freddie King fan (fan of all three Kings). Have an Epi Lucille. Love it. I would buy an Epi or Gibson Freddie model in a heartbeat.. I didn't know his daughter played. Am interested in her tunes.

Just searched Wanda King on Spotify. Smooth voice. Freddie would be proud! Not a huge fan of the way Spotify treats aritists, but she needs more listeners on Spotiy!
