My guitarist also plays and sings with India.Arie. About a year ago, he tried to hook up Gibson, but they had a "maybe" attitude. His Godin got stolen, and Gibson offered to let him borrow one to use on the Rosie O'Donnell Show and the Carson Daly Last Call show. Afterwards, he turned it in and hopped a plane back here to Atlanta. Today, a UPS truck shows up at his house and delivers 2 Chet Atkins sigs (one with steel strings, and one with nylons) and an SG, and a custom Les Paul has been ordered! Total price................ZILCH! They gave him a Class A endorsement deal. Free stuf!!!!
