Epiphone has combined two unique elements of Americana - Airstream travel trailers and the Trailer Park Troubadours - to create a unique new artist signature guitar, the Epi Airscreamer.


The body of the guitar is shaped like the popular Airstream "Bambi" trailer - complete with a volume control knob for a hub cap - that has been a familiar sight on America's roadways since the 1960s, and the model is officially licensed by the Airstream company. The Epi Airscreamer is also an official artist signature model for the Trailer Park Troubadours, the cult band that glorifies the "trailer lifestyle" with such songs as "I Live in Aluminum" and "It Ain't Home Til You Take the Wheels Off."


The Trailer Park Troubadours "rolled out" the Airscreamer at an Epiphone VIP party at the summer NAMM show in Nashville in July. 2003. Airstream trailers and mobile homes have provided a "home away from home" for millions of traveling Americans since 1931 and have inspired loyal owners to organize Airstream rallies and caravans.
