Encore! Following the ‘1959 Legends’ custom edition Les Paul Standard Reissue guitar and Bonneville T120 motorcycle collaboration, Triumph and Gibson have stepped up to provide further support for the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. Three additional guitars, each signed by a famous musician, with a custom painted guitar case each inspired by a legendary Triumph rider. These “Saints of Speed” custom guitar cases will be painted by the world-renowned guitar artist James Willis.

Donated to support The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, in its global charity efforts to raise awareness and funds in support of men’s mental health and prostate cancer, each of the Epiphone ‘Inspired by Gibson’ guitars pays homage to a Gibson music legend and each comes with the signature details and features that made them famous. The custom case that comes with each guitar will be painted by Nashville guitar artist, James Willis who owns multiple bikes and will be participating in this year’s Gentleman’s Ride on his Scrambler 1200 XC.

Further celebrating the connection between music and motorcycles, the guitars will be signed by musicians that are also passionate riders, each participating in this year’s Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. The Epiphone ‘Inspired by Gibson’ J-200 will be signed by American country music artist Big Kenny, of Big & Rich. The Epiphone ‘Inspired by Gibson’ SG Standard will be signed by Canadian recording artist Clayton Bellamy of The Road Hammers. The Epiphone ‘Inspired by Gibson’ 1959 Les Paul Standard will be signed by English rock musician Billy Duffy of The Cult.
