Gibson Brands will host a Golden Ticket scavenger hunt on Friday, January 23, 2015 in conjunction with the NAMM Convention at the Convention Center in Anaheim, California. The forty (40) Golden Ticket prizes will consist of Gibson and Epiphone electric and acoustic guitars along with Gibson Brands Pro Audio equipment totaling over $50,000 in value.  With every ticket found, Gibson will make a donation to Wounded Warrior Project with a guaranteed total of $50,000.  Clues as to the location of the items in The Great Gibson Grab are on Twitter: @gibsonguitar #GibsonGrab @wwpinc #woundedwarriorproject. The scavenger hunt will be in the four blocks surrounding the Convention Center (800 W. Katella Ave., Anaheim, California  92802) from 10-3 p.m. on January 23 and the guitars and gear will be redeemed with the tickets at 3:30 p.m. at the Gibson Bus which will be parked on the grounds of the Anaheim Convention Center outside next to the Venue Arena, near the NAMM outdoor “Venue Stage.”  The hunt is open to the general public and the attendees of the NAMM Convention.

“Do your part for Wounded Warriors Project,” commented Henry Juszkiewicz, chairman/CEO of Gibson Brands. “You find the prize, we make the donation!”

At NAMM 2015 Gibson will introduce the Gibson USA 2015 New Model Year. Gibson USA is dedicated to creating the ultimate playing experience through innovation and continuous improvement. From the very beginning, Orville Gibson was committed to this ideal. His vision has been carried on by a number of passionate, creative designers, luthiers and master craftsmen – from Lloyd Loar to Les Paul – to today.

It is in this spirit that Gibson USA has established the business practice of introducing a new model line every year in the fall. Every new Model Year is the culmination of research on how we can make the most advanced guitars.

Eight years in development, the new Gibson G FORCE™ improves on the innovations introduced in Min-ETune™ with simplified ease of use, an enhanced feature set, and increased speed. Standard on most 2015 models, Gibson G FORCE™ provides the best and simplest experience yet in an automatic tuning system.

The Gibson NAMM booth features the 2015 models and is located at 300B.
