Be sure to check out the June issue of Guitar World
which features a tribute to "Epiphone's Coolest and Craziest Guitars
" with spotlights on the Wilshire Phant-o-matic
, the Casino
, the 1962 Crestwood
, and the Riviera Custom P-93 (
which you can be sure Elvis would have used on his "Comeback Special" if he had had the chance).
"Epiphone has always endeavored to create a unique identity for itself," writes Guitar World
columnist Alan Di Perna. "And this mission has given the world truly exceptional guitars, some of which have become classics." Well said. Don't miss it.
