All of us at the House of Stathopoulo wish a very Happy Birthday to longtime Epi Signature Artist and guitarist extraordinaire Joe Bonamassa. Joe has been part of the Epiphone family for over a decade and the arc of his rise from phenom to legend has been a thrill to be a part of. Be sure to check out Joe’s latest release, the Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa ES-355 Standard Outfit, a collaboration with Epiphone’s luthiers in Nashville.  Joe’s ES-355 is a semi-hollowbody archtop profile with an Ebony finish, gold hardware, ProBuckerTM humbuckers, Mallory Capacitors, a Bigsby™ B700 Vibrato and Vibramate® String Spoiler, Custom Hard Case, and Hand-Signed Certificate of Authenticity.  

“I have always loved the look and sound of black 355 guitars,” said Bonamassa. “Epiphone once again has masterfully re-created a guitar initially built for me by the Gibson Custom shop that I used on my Live at The Greek TheaterDVD at a price point that is totally affordable for players and collectors of great ES guitars. Thank you once again it is an honor as always.”
Joe’s Epiphone Les Pauls and Treasure Firebird have all but sold out but you might still find a lucky few at your Authorized Epiphone Dealer. Read some of our classic interviews and look for more good news from Epiphone and Mr. B in the very near future. Happy Birthday Joe!
