Fresh off a tour of Australia and New Zealand with the
guitarist Billy Burnette recently stopped by the Nashville showroom to check
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
AJ-500R, commenting on the fabulous tone of the all-solid wood acoustic
and comparing it to the
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.
Billy checks out a
Gibson President Dave Berryman
and Billy check out one of the
McCartney Aged USA Texans.
