The guitar, a 1960 Gibson Epiphone Texan model, has been one of Case’s favorite guitars for many years, and was used extensively on her Fox Confessor album. She recently donated the guitar to Catamount Arts in support of the Northeast Kingdom regional arts center’s fundraising efforts. Paul Rigby and I used this a TON making “Fox Confessor”.
