The rock lifestyle naturally lends itself to killer toys and nothing is cooler than custom motorcycles! That’s why Epiphone and Gibson USA were sponsors of the Music City Bike Show January 8th and 9th at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds in Nashville, Tennessee.

The all-indoor custom bike show featured customized bikes, hand-built bikes and radical choppers from all over the United States from some of the country’s most famous builders. The show was literally packed both days with motorcycle enthusiasts and one lucky attendee took away an Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus just for voting for their favorite bike! In addition, the builder of the People’s Choice award winner nabbed a Gibson Limited Edition Coppertop Les Paul Studio!

Our own Will Jones, AKA Dr. Epiphone helped out as honorary M.C. and Epiphone ambassador, stirring up the crowd and answering questions about the guitars and giving out his usual advice on guitar care and how to buy the best instrument for your money.
