Fresh off a tour of Australia and New Zealand with the legendary John Fogerty, guitarist Billy Burnette recently stopped by the Nashville showroom to check out an Epiphone Casino. It seems that Mr. Burnette has fallen in love with the neck and feel of the instrument as well as the signature Casino sound and is looking to add one to his arsenal!

Billy also tried out a Masterbilt AJ-500R, commenting on the fabulous tone of the all-solid wood acoustic and comparing it to the Gibson J-200 he plays on tour with Fogerty.

A member of Fogerty's band for the past year and a half, Billy has also toured with Bob Dylan and was a member of Fleetwood Mac for nearly a decade in the late '80's to early '90's... about the same time he became an Epiphone player. (See inset... circa 1987!)

Billy's extensive list of songwriting credits, include hits with Faith Hill, Rod Stewart, Ray Charles, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fleetwood Mac, Cher and others. Look for his latest solo project "Memphis in Manhattan" this February on the Cheskey Records label.
