Don't miss it. Be sure to pick up a copy of Snider's latest album, Eastside Bulldog, and read his classic interview with Epiphone.com and discover Mr. Snider's passion for his Epiphone EJ-200.

Since my first album, I've written every song I've written on those jumbo Epiphones. I believe the low end has that "Country Honk" (*Ed, acoustic version of "Honky Tonk Women" from The Rolling Stones 1969 album Let It Bleed) sound of the Stones.

I feel like the jumbo Epiphones with medium strings are the way to get it. When it was time for me to try a Gibson, I felt like the high end was too bright for me. So I stuck with my Epiphone. I just never, ever went back. The first time I used one was on Austin City Limits and I remember hearing the monitors at sound check and thinking: I've been wanting this sound my whole life. And I finally have it. And I've had so many people try to talk me out of my guitar. Jerry Jeff always say: 'but it's too heavy, you're getting old.' I say, nah, I don't care.
