Actor Keanu Reeves has revealed a shiny new guitar somehow taking part in the imminent and long-awaited Bill & Ted sequel, Bill & Ted Face the Music. The film is expected to come out next year after it was officially announced by Reeves and co-star Alex Winter in March. The inseparable pair played the time-traveling duo in both 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and the 1991 follow-up Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.

Recent reports have already revealed that filming is already underway in New Orleans, but now, an Instagram photo from local band MoJEAUX has revealed the guitar alleged to be used in the film, a sparkly silver San Dimas model from the Charvel brand. The post, which has since been deleted, showed Reeves and his co-star Winter with the guitar in hand, standing besides MoJEAUX’s guitarist. The caption read “Bill and Ted’s Guitar Teacher”.

Any attempts to view the post now come up in vain. Keanu Reeves must’ve had a word with him.


However, there is one post that still remains, which shows off the guitar in question. Of course, the famous Bill & Ted are missing from this one, but you get the gist.

Another post which has since been deleted is the band’s guitarist shown with an in-makeup William Sadler, the Bogus Journey actor who’s said to be reprising the role of Death in the forthcoming third film.

Bill & Ted Face the Music is due in theaters Aug. 21, 2020. Read the official synopsis below.

Following 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, the stakes are higher than ever for William ‘Bill’ S. Preston Esq. (Winter) and Theodore ‘Ted’ Logan (Reeves). Yet to fulfill their rock and roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure, when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it and bring harmony to the universe. Along the way, they will be helped by their families, old friends, and a few music legends.
