“The first time I opened the case, I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was,” Rude told Epiphone.com. “The sound, the look, the feel—it’s a dream come true. I had always read about how my favorite artists went back and forth when designing their signature guitars. I thought this would take a long time. But Epiphone made it perfect right out of the box. Thank you!”
