Nashville, TN (January 5, 2015) — To kick off 2015, Epiphone is proud to announce the new exclusive signature model designed by GRAMMY winner Gary Clark Jr., the Ltd. Ed. Gary Clark Jr. “Blak and Blu” Casino with trapeze tailpiece or Bigsby Vibrato. The Ltd. Ed. Gary Clark Jr. “Blak and Blu” Casino will be available in spring 2015.
Gary Clark Jr. is one of the most exciting performers of our generation with a totally original style that fuses rock, pop, acoustic and electric blues, and rhythm & blues into a sound all his own. In only a few years, Clark has become a living legend to both music fans and musicians. Whether he’s touring with his amazing band, sitting in with the Rolling Stones, or performing at the White House, Clark is never seen without his favorite guitar, an Epiphone Casino.
Clark’s new Signature Ltd. Ed. “Blak & Blu” Casino is a Laminated Maple, 5-ply (Maple/Birch) hollowbody archtop in a beautiful custom Blak and Blu Burst finish with Gibson USA P-90 pickups, the same pickups that have powered two generations of hits by Casino fans like The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Oasis, and now Gary Clark Jr. The new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Gary Clark Jr. “Blak & Blu” Casino is available with either a traditional trapeze tailpiece or a legendary Bigsby Vibrato B70 Vibrato.
“I pretty much knew from day one that I needed a few things for my arsenal and the Epiphone Casino is the one guitar that always stood out,” said Clark. “Getting my first Casino changed my life. And my new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. “Blak & Blue” Casinos are amazing guitars. They’re a dream. I love ‘em!”
