Fight For Gibson's Right to Rock - Win a Custom Les Paul Standard
As you may have heard, Gibson have been raided twice by Federal Agents over their use of imported woods, now they are asking for public support with their 'Fight For Your Right to Rock' contest.
Gibson claim the Lacey Act is unfair and that they have complied with Indian Laws, from where they source their Rosewood for fingerboards.
They are giving you several ways to enter - you can submit video, original song or logo expressing how the Lacey Act can be made fair.
The main prize up for grabs is a customized Gibson USA Les Paul Standard ($3,899 MSRP) complete with the winning logo.
"Through this contest we're asking people to lend their voice so that those in power understand that there's true concern," said Gibson Chairman and CEO Henry Juszkiewicz. "To be clear, we're not looking to abolish the Lacey Act — we're asking that it be amended — that it be made fair and clear."
Entries are open to residents of the USA, Canada, and Europe. For more information go to gibson.com/News-Lifestyle/Contests/2011/Fight-For-Your-Right-To-Rock.aspx.
