About Carl Wilson
Carl Dean Wilson was an American rock and roll singer, guitarist and composer, born in Hawthorne, Californiarn. Best known as a founding member, lead guitarist as well as occasional lead vocalist of The Beach Boys, Wilson performed lead vocals on lots of notable songs by the Beach Boys, "Good Vibrations" and "God Only Knows" included. Influenced by the guitar playing of Chuck Berry and the Ventures, Carl's initial role in the group was that of lead guitarist and backing vocals, but he occasionally performed lead vocals on several of their hits, including "Good Vibrations" and "God Only Knows". Unlike other members of the band, he often played alongside the studio musicians employed during the group's critical and commercial peak in the mid 1960s. After Brian began withdrawing from the group, Carl was forced to take a more active production role, and he became the band's musical director on stage from 1965 until his death from lung cancer in 1998.
Carl Wilson, the youngest brother of fellow Beach Boys Dennis and Brian Wilson and cousin of Beach Boy Mike Love, was credited for keeping the Beach boys together through all their Trials & Tribulations. This Rickenbacker 360 Carl Wilson 6 string is one of Wilson’s most beautiful guitar, with only 500 made and only 250 were six string.
