The Gulf Coast has contributed
more to modern music than perhaps any other U.S. region, and it has had a lasting impact on the entire world. Along with the
great loss of life and property during the hurricanes Katrina and Rita, thousands of musicians lost their instruments and
their livelihood along with those instruments. By purchasing the Music Rising Les Paul Standard, you will not only help repay
the musical debt we all owe to the Crescent City, but will also become the proud owner of a guitar that commemorates America's
commitment to its artists.
