Richie Sambora’s The King Of Swing Rod Schoepfer Custom

Richie Sambora’s The King Of Swing Rod Schoepfer Custom. This guitar was named “The King Of Swing” after Richie Sambora’s nickname. After the success and pleasure Richie had with his Schoepfer Les Paul (which we also sold), Richie Sambora commissioned a second custom guitar from Rod Schoepfer, “The King of Swing Guitar”. After 400+ man-hours of work this guitar was completed in 1987.

Richie used this guitar on the “Slippery When Wet” tour in 1987. Richie would often play this guitar when performing the Bon Jovi song “Let It Rock” as the lyrics reference the phrase “The King Of Swing“.
