This limited edition Les Paul Standard was created by Epiphone to aid Music Rising, the charity helping to replace instruments and gear lost by New Orleans musicians in the devastation of hurricane Katrina. Musician's Friend is honored to partner with Gibson to help reverse the devastation suffered by the Crescent City's music community.
Adorned with a Music Rising graphic designed by U2's The Edge who co-founded the charity, all proceeds from the sale of this guitar will go to Music Rising. A special inscription on the headstock reads: "Rebuilding Note by Note." The inscription on the belly reads: "MUSIC RISING - INSTRUMENTS FOR THE GULF COAST."
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.
