All of us at Epiphone send a big congrats to our epic Signature Artist Gary Clark Jr. for winning his first GRAMMY for Best Traditional R&B performance for "Please Come Home." We especially like that Gary posted the attached twitter photo with his favorite Epiphone Masterbilt acoustic guitar, too! There are not many left at retails but fans should seek out Gary's Ltd. Ed. "Blak & Blu" Casino which Music Radar
called a "classy package" and Guitar World
called by far the best choice for its fierce tone, outstanding playability and sonic versatility."
Read our classic interview Gary
and look for more good news from Epiphone and Gary Clark Jr., soon.
"I pretty much knew from day one that I needed a few things for my arsenal," Clark told Epiphone.com. The Epiphone Casino is the one that always stood out. I'd always go out and pick one of those in a store when I would go Strait music or Ray Hennigs Heart of Texas Music down here in Austin. It always stood out but I never had the money to get one."
And then finally I scrapped up some change and got one and the Casino changed my life. I knew that was what I needed to have. I had my eyes on it before I even really got familiar with it. And it just kind of stuck. I'm good with that. It's cool to have a Blak & Blu guitar, do you know what I mean? To have the guitar I've always wanted and to be able to customize it--"what if it was this color?"--it's surreal to see it all happen."
