Epiphone continues its 2014 monthly giveaways into April by featuring an Epiphone Casino signed by GRAMMY winner Gary Clark Jr.
The company says that for more than 50 years, the Casino has powered every great era of pop music, from the British Invasion in the '60s to Brit Pop in the '90s. Now, the Casino is once again making history in the hands of Texas troubadour and GRAMMY winner Gary Clark Jr., who has been called by Entertainment Weekly, 'a torch carrier and a fire starter.' This month, Epiphone is offering fans around the world the chance to win an iconic Epiphone Casino signed by Gary Clark Jr. in a beautiful Cherry finish, just like Gary's stage guitar.
Epiphone President Jim Rosenberg, told us, "Gary is not only one of today's most exciting artists, he's also one of our generation's great guitarists. We've been following his career for a long time--from his appearance at the White House to Eric Clapton's Crossroads Festival and at this year's GRAMMY awards. Clark is never seen on stage without his Casino!"
Here's more about the Casino in Epiphone's words...
The Epiphone Casino still has the same classic look, sound and features that have made it the go-to guitar for two generations of artists including Paul McCartney, Keith Richards, John Lennon, Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, Radiohead and now Gary Clark, Jr.
The Casino's unique features include a 5-play maple top, back and sides with basswood bracing. The Casino's 24.75" scale mahogany neck has the classic SlimTaper™ "D" profile with a glued-in neck joint joining the body at the 16th fret, just like vintage models from the '60s.
Today's Casinos incorporate Epiphone's famous Alnico P-90T and P-90R Dogear pickups for that perfect combination of chime and growl. Widely known as the king of single coil pickups, these lean and mean P-90's offer a stellar combination of high output and biting treble response. The world-famous Epiphone Casino is a jazz guitar, a rock guitar, a blues guitar and everything in between.
