The Authority Song: Gibson Guitar Sticks it to the Man

Posted By on Tue, Feb 11, 2014 at 5:21 PM

Gibson Guitar CEO Henry Juszkiewicz got his wood back and now he's showing the Obama Regime his middle finger by issuing the Government II series Les Paul crafted with exotic woods previously seized by the U.S. Government because, as the DOJ put it, the company failed to comply with rules "intended to limit over-harvesting valuable wood species from Madagascar, a country which has been severely impacted by deforestation.”

As you can see, it looks like a regular Les Paul, but with a "Government Tan" finish that just screams tyranny!

According to the description of the Government II at Gibson.com, "Great Gibson electric guitars have long been a means of fighting the establishment, so when the powers that be confiscated stocks of tonewoods from the Gibson factory in Nashville—only to return them once there was a resolution and the investigation ended—it was an event worth celebrating." 

And by celebrating we guess they mean "fighting the establishment." And by fighting the establishment they mean paying $300,000 in fines and making a $50,000 contribution to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
