‘Lucky Betty’ owned by Betty La
Foy

Starting out in the summer
of 1959 from Porter, Indiana, ‘Lucky’ Betty La Foy and her all female stunt
crew took their daredevil show across America, driving jalopies through
rings of fire, jumping motorbikes over school buses and escaping certain death many
times over. And if that wasn’t dangerous enough, Betty’s piéce de résistance
was to ride the Wall of Death on a modified ex “Wrecking Crew’ Indian
Scout motorbike while playing rock n roll hits on her custom made electric
guitar. Betty had a red version for week day shows, and a white one for
Sunday best.

After 40 years of dropping
the jaws of audiences worldwide and without ever having a single stunt go
wrong, Betty decided to quit before her luck ran out. She currently lives
a quieter life on the Florida Keys with her devoted husband, Big Al. At
79 she still drives her hot rodded 1934 Ford Model 40 V8 Coupe every day
and is the oldest Floridian resident ever to receive a speeding ticket,
shooting 73 mph in a 50 zone.

Body: Double-cut, super resonant
American Alder body with custom “Lucky Betty” graphics and go
faster binding. A Red version for the weekday and a White one for Sunday
best.

Bridge: The Wilkinson WVC Vibrato bridge enabled Betty to pull off
her signature ‘changing gears’ trick and come back in tune every time.
What are you gonna do with yours?

Pickups: Single Joe Doe designed humbucker that can take you from 0
to around 8k in the twist of a volume pot.

Controls: Lots going on under the hood here. A single master Volume,
single tone control and variable coil tap providing a huge range of tones
from soulful to scorching hot.

Machine heads: Wilkinson WJ55 E-Z-Lok machine heads provide simple,
effective action and are plated in shiny chrome like the mudguard from an
Indian Motorbike.

Neck: Hard rock Maple with classic Vintage ‘soft C’ profile for
instant comfort. On the rear there’s a good luck message from Betty’s
husband, Big Al. Run your fingers along it for luck, just like Betty did
before every show.

Fingerboard: Lignum Rosa for outstanding tonal transfer and durability.
A traditional 10″ radius makes playing as easy as riding around a
small wooden cylinder at 30mph with a guitar in your hands.

Frets: 22 Medium profile frets.

Nut: 43mm Graphtech nut, smooth and friction free, just like the
running order of Betty’s shows.

Headstock: Unique Vintage “Joe Doe” Lucky Betty”
headstock design.

Case: Joe Doe luxury hardshell case with case
candy.

Certificate: Certificate of authenticity included.

Limited Edition 1 of 100 ‘Lucky Betty’ is an original Vintage®
guitar, designed and created by  and
the UK Vintage design team.
