Gibson Gives is all about making music matter, one guitar at a time. Gibson has partnered with Guitars For Vets to bring the power of music to returning U.S. military veterans.
Gibson opened the doors of its Custom Shop in Nashville to debut a donation of 48 guitars and 19,000 string sets as well as their continued support to Guitars For Vets. Guitars For Vets provides veterans with guitars and a forum to learn how to play which is in line with the new Gibson Gives mission.
Gibson artist Sully Erna of the multiplatinum rock group Godsmack presented the gift to U.S. Veterans Henry Thomas, Pete Nugris, Brandon Branham and Patrick Nettesheim Co-Founder of Guitars For Vets.
“Gibson Gives is an opportunity to play it forward and this is what matters,” adds James “JC” Curleigh, President and CEO of Gibson. “We are pleased to join Guitars For Vets, when veterans come home, we should have solutions for them and we have solutions through music.”
Gibson Gives is the front end of the Gibson Foundation whose overall mission is to make music matter one guitar at a time.
