"None of this would have happened without Epiphone. Seventeen years later, I really didn't expect that this would still be in the line. It's a testament to how unique Epiphone is in the industry. And Jim seems to like to work in the vintage area of instruments that have come and gone because of fashion. Epiphone brings them back so the new young players will come along and hear these instruments and understand what a good instrument is supposed to sound like. That's why I love Epiphone."
