gibson1In 2009 and 2011, federal agents raided Gibson Guitars under provisions of the Lacey Act, a wildlife and forest protection law. Federal agents confiscated the exotic wood used in Gibson guitars, but after the settlement, Gibson has their supplies back and are putting the wood supplies into a new line of guitars.
The company has unveiled the Gibson Government Series, along with a list price of $1,099. The website states the guitars are a way to “fight the powers that be.” Included in the series is the mahogany-bodied Government Series II Les Paul, a “striking new guitar from Gibson USA for 2014 that suitably marks this infamous time in Gibson’s history,” according to the website.
