Chuck Berry ES-350T and George Thorogood ‘White Fang’ ES-125TDC are among the many offerings on tap.

NAMM 2019: In addition to a spat of recently-announced new electrics and acoustics, Gibson has teamed up with Chuck Berry’s son and grandson to recreate Berry’s famed ES-350T. According to the company, Berry’s original guitar was “x-rayed down to the micro-level” in order to craft the new instrument.

The company has also reported that several additional signature models are currently in the works. These include: an Epiphone Ltd Ed Thorogood “White Fang” ES-125TDC; an Epiphone Limited Edition Jared James Nichols "Old Glory" Les Paul Custom Outfit; an Epiphone Limited Edition Dave Rude Flying V Outfit; a Custom Shop Dave Amato Signature Axcess Les Paul; a Custom Shop Brian Ray '62 SG Jr.; a Custom Shop Lee Roy Parnell Signature 1959 Les Paul Standard; a Slim Harpo ’62 ES-330 and a Michael Clifford Signature Melody Maker.

This new announcement follows the recently-revealed Chris Cornell Tribute Model ES-335. Features of the Cornell guitar include aged Lollartron humbucking pickups, clear “no number” Top Hat knobs, an Olive Drab Satin finish and a Mother-of-Pearl Chris Cornell ‘signature’ peghead inlay. Only 250 will be available, with a portion of the proceeds going to charities in his name.

The Kemptville Live Music Festival is very proud to announce that we will host American Rock Legend George Thorogood and the Destroyers will headline the 2019 Festival Saturday July 20, 2019.


Since 1975, they’ve sold over 15 million albums, built a classic catalog of hits, and played more than 8,000 ferocious live shows. They broke records with their 50 Dates/50 States tour, delivered landmark performances at Live Aid and on SNL, and became mainstays of radio, MTV and stages worldwide for more than two generations. Through it all, they’ve remained one of the most consistent – and consistently passionate – progenitors of blues-based rock in pop culture history.

For the past 45 years, it’s been very good to be George Thorogood & The Destroyers. And in 2019, their Good To Be Bad Tour: 45 Years Of Rock will prove why like never before.
