Before he could ever dream of having his own signature model, Clark Jr. gravitated to an Epiphone Casino because of its sleek, symmetrical body shape and its ability to give him tones reminiscent of B.B. King and T-Bone Walker. Following the success of his album Blak and Blu, Epiphone honored the Texas axe-slinger with his own namesake model shown here. The only major differences from a standard Casino are the Blak and Blu finish and Gibson P-90 pickups. Almost all of his guitars are strung up with D’Addario Custom Nickel .011–.049, but the lower-tuned guitars use .011–.052.
