These guitars were made in the custom shop, are not just a standard Les Paul. They're great sounding, and beautiful...but they need to be played and not just in a case. 

Comes with a Gibson black hardshell case. The frets are excellent, and the neck is straight. 

The story of these guitars is the following : 

In 2005 the Southern United States were devastated by one of the fiercest hurricanes in history -- "Katrina". With staggering ferocity, "Katrina" destroyed all in her path, and leveled much of New Orleans in the process.

Following a visit to New Orleans in November 2005, U2's The Edge announced the unveiling of Music Rising, a campaign to raise funds to replace the lost instruments and accessories of the musicians affected by the hurricanes that devastated the Gulf Coast region.

Lead partners Gibson Guitars and Guitar Center Music Foundation spearheaded the initial effort by collaborating on the design, manufacture and sale of an exclusive Gibson guitar with all proceeds going directly to the Music Rising program. The guitar is available exclusively through Guitar Center. The instrument captures the essence of the Gulf Coast's musical tradition. Less than 300 were produced with all proceeds benefiting Music Rising and a pledge of $1 million in support.

The Gibson Music Rising guitar features hand-painted designs using the colors of Mardi Gras. Each guitar is individually painted and handmade so no two are alike. All of the usual plastic parts (back plate, pick guard, toggle cover, truss rod cover) have been replaced by woods from the States affected by the hurricanes and the Music Rising logo, exclusive to this guitar, is etched into the pick guard.
