Since 2006, Dave Rude’s spectacular solos, impeccable rhythm, and charismatic stage presence have inspired Tesla and two generations of loyal fans worldwide. A longtime devotee of Epiphone, Rude originally asked the Nashville R&D team to design a one-off custom “Flying-V,” which led to the creation of his new Epiphone. Catch Dave Rude performing with his new ‘Ltd. Ed. Dave Rude Flying V Outfit’ on the road with Tesla starting May 31 in St. Paul, MN.
“The first time I opened the case, I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was,” explains Dave Rude about his new Signature Flying V. “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!”
