One-of-a-Kind Gibson Les Paul Inspired by Vivian Campbell

This year, to celebrate its 20th anniversary, VH1 Save The Music partnered with the Gibson Foundation to recruit 20 musicians and 20 visual artists to create 20 custom guitars that are as much art pieces as they are musical instruments.

Each Les Paul will be auctioned through Julien’s Auctions in October, with all proceeds benefiting VH1 Save The Music in its mission to expand public access to music education for children in America’s public schools.

Participants include Joe Perry, Rick Nielsen, Warren Haynes, Gary Clark Jr. and longtime Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell.

“As a child, I searched to communicate with those around me and to find my voice,” says Campbell, who was introduced to the custom ax before his recent show in Chicago. “Music gave me that voice. I believe music is an expression of our souls and the universal language that we all speak.”

The Latest from Vivian Campbell

Happy Monday to everyone! The awesome people at Frontiers Music srl have something really cool for you all later this week! We’ll just have to wait and see what that will be (we’re pretty sure you’re going to love it though!!). We could watch the Riverdogs behind the scenes, making of ‘California’ video again. Or have another listen to ‘Welcome to the New Disaster’ or “Something Inside” to pass the time! Here is a link to the Frontiers Records Youtube Riverdogs Playlist where you can catch up on all 3 (and bookmark it for the future)!!
