Be sure to visit Halestorm’s website for the band's new tour dates and to learn more about their deluxe fan membership package featuring a hand signed Epiphone Les Paul Special II plus new Halestorm t-shirts, a keychain, flask, and much more. Halestorm founder Lzzy Hale has been rocking the USA with her Epiphone Signature Explorer Outfit featuring a classic Explorer design in an Alpine White Gloss finish and powered by Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers, Grover™ Rotomatic machine heads, an Ebony fingerboard, and gold hardware. The Outfit also includes a custom hard shell case and Certificate of Authenticity. See your Authorized Epiphone Dealer for details.

“Dude, it’s amazing,” Hale told “This was actually something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. In passing, they’d say, ‘We should do an Epiphone…’and I’d say ‘yeah…yeah… that would be great.’  And now here it is! Having an Epiphone signature model is extremely important to me because it gives me a broader reach. I’ve had signature models before but they’ve also been pretty much a mortgage payment.

Even from a financial aspect, with my Epiphone, I get to give the gift of music and put a great guitar in the hands of people who want it. It could be someone’s first guitar but it’s not something you’ll ever have to upgrade. This a real guitar and it feels like home to me. What I love about an Explorer is when you see someone playing one, you know they’re going to rock. It has those edges to it. I always feel like a rock star with my Epiphone. I hope anyone who picks it up feels like a rock star, too. I would encourage them to make a lot of noise with it because that’s currently what I’m doing (laughs)!”
