This limited edition Les Paul Standard is a guitar 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. We are 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 Gulf Coast has contributed more to modern
music than perhaps any other region of this country and in turn 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.
