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.

More about Music Rising
Music Rising is a national campaign created by U2's The Edge, producer Bob Ezrin, Gibson Guitar Chairman and CEO Henry Juszkiewicz along with support from Guitar Center Music Foundation and MusiCares. Inaugural partners MusiCares, Gibson Guitar, Guitar Center, Musician's Friend, VH-1 Networks, MTV Networks, Rolling Stone Magazine, The Kennedy/Marshall Company, Ticketmaster, and Live Nation constitute the most dynamic and comprehensive organized group to launch a relief program since the Hurricanes hit the United States. The campaign's goal is to help rebuild the musical heart and culture of the Gulf Region by replacing the musical instruments and gear that were lost in the hurricane season of 2005. Music Rising will continue to be administered by The Gibson Foundation.

"These guitars provide funding to buy instruments for the Katrina impacted schools and churches of the gulf coast. How cool is that?" Edge.
