Congrats to Epiphone signature artist Gary Clark Jr. who has just released a new live album, North America 2016. Clark will be playing several festivals this summer including the Laurelive in Ohio, the legendary Chicago Blues Festival, and Mountain Jam with fellow Epi fans Peter Frampton, Steve Miller Band, and Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives featuring our own Chris Scruggs. If you missed it, check out our recent feature with Chris and pals Fats Kaplin and Buddy Miller as they take the Masterbilt Century Collection through its paces. And read our classic interview with Gary Clark Jr. about designing his Ltd. Ed. Blak & Blu Casino.

"I'm not really instrument crazy,” Clark told Epiphone. "For somebody who has a lot of instruments, I've been very fortunate that people have laid these nice gifts upon me.  I pretty much knew from day one that I needed a few things for my arsenal. The Epiphone Casino is the one that always stood out."
