If you're in Nashville this Sunday December 10, catch Leon Bridges along with friends Ruby Amanfu, Brendon Benson, and The Lone Below at the annual MusiCares benefit at 3rd & Lindsley. Read our classic interview with Benson where he talks about his Nashville recording studio and his vintage Epiphone Casino.
"I think I got it at Blackmarket music in San Francisco," said Benson. "It's a '65, all original. I was making my first record with Ethan Johns engineering and I think he had one and brought one to the studio. And I fell in love with his so I found that one. And mine's actually a lot cooler than his (laughs). I've played my Casino forever. That was my main guitar."
Mr. Bridges recently announced he'll perform at the 2018 Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival which will take place March 1-4 at Sunshine Grove in Okeechobee, Florida. The lineup includes Epi fans The Flaming Lips along with Foster the People, STS9, and Arcade Fire. Visit the festival's official website

or as John Lee Hooker liked to call it, an 'outdid 335' featuring ProBucker™ pickups with coil-splitting and a Graphtech® NuBone XL™ nut.
