The great Dickey Betts with the Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul
Some of the greatest names in Southern Rock, Dickey Betts, Charlie Daniels, Gary Rossington, Rickey Medlocke and Jimmy Hall, were in Nashville last night to jam a little and celebrate the launch of the Southern Rock Tribute Program and the beautiful Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul from Gibson Custom.
50 of the guitars were signed by the assembled legends.
Henry Juszkiewicz, chairman and CEO of Gibson Brands said: “We are thrilled to introduce the industry’s first program to pay homage to a music genre that played an integral role in the brand’s foundation. Through the celebration of the Les Paul we are humbled by the wide-spread support we have received from some of the Southern Rock legends and are honored to be giving back to a music genre and its community that has given so much to our brand.”
The Gibson Foundation will donate a portion of sales generated from this soon to be iconic Les Paul to benefit members of the music community through Music Health Alliance.
