Anytime Joe Bonamassa sits down (as in, not performing or releasing an album), is good news since Joe is such a passionate and eloquent spokesperson for guitarists. Joe visited Epiphone in 2012 and it was a terrific conversation. (He even let us try his 1958 Les Paul Standard: "Here, check it out."
) Here's Joe (with his custom 335
) and pal George Benson discussing the common threads of blues and jazz as well as their shared love for B.B. King and T-Bone Walker.
For B.B. King fans, Epiphone's Lucille
was designed with B.B.'s steadfast design support and features Classic Alnico pickups and a VariTone control.
For T-Bone Walker fans, check out the P93 Custom Riviera (also a favorite of Jeff Tweedy of Wilco) which features three P-90 pickups that have incredible sustain and variety of tone.
