We caught up with Tommy Shaw of Styx last week. The iconic band is currently on the 2012 Midwest Rock-n-Roll Express Tour with REO Speedwagon and Ted Nugent. We've created some cool custom Epiphone Coronet guitars to help promote the already wildly popular tour and Tommy has been playing his 50th Anniversary "1961" Casino, and quite enjoying it. In his own words, "I'm liking this new Epiphone. The way it sounds, the way it plays, the way it looks! It's such a beauty. I'm really happy to have it. I had no idea it would be such a sweet instrument." Be sure to catch Styx on the 2012 Midwest Rock-n-Roll Express Tour. Visit for more information.
