‘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.

ProShop Set-Up: Each guitar is individually set-up by the Vintage ProShop team.

Limited Edition 1 of 100 'Lucky Betty' is an original Vintage® guitar, designed and created by Joe Doe Guitars and the UK Vintage design team.
