Gibson Guitars Goes Green For Live Earth Spectacular

What’s better than jamming for the planet? Jamming on eco-friendly acoustic guitars, baby! Gibson Acoustic Guitar has produced 25 exclusive, environmentally-friendly custom guitars with the Live Earth logo emblazoned on the front. These limited edition beauties will be signed by artists performing at the eight official concerts across the globe on July 7, 2007 and, ultimately, auctioned off to benefit the Live Earth concerts and Alliance for Climate Protection. If you’ve always wanted to take those beginner guitar lessons what could be a better reason than this.

What’s so environmentally friendly about these guitars? Glad you asked. From the article,

“The Live Earth Guitar is based on the best selling J-45 Gibson Acoustic Guitar. This round shouldered dreadnought design has affectionately been called the “workhorse” by artists since the 1940’s. The guitar displays the Live Earth logo and all graphics were placed on the guitar then coated with a nitro-cellulose lacquer. The body and neck of the guitar are constructed using rainforest friendly, FSC Certified Mahogany. With a scale length of 24 3/4-inches, the guitar not only produces a full, rich tone but is considered a pleasure to play by many artists.”

It’s a shame really that none of these guitars will actually be played at the event. Then again, perhaps they’re trying to preserve them from potential damage — especially if Slash got a hold of one. If Slash played acoustic. Hit the jump for more.
