Read our classic interview with Mr. Benson
and keep an eye out for more good news from Third Man and Epiphone.
"(The Casino) is my favorite guitar," Benson told Epiphone. "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. Now, I'm really glad to have a new one
so I can retire my vintage Casino. And the re-issue sounds great and plays great and I just love it."
