Gibson's Memphis Guitar production plant is closing down the production line and opening their doors to supply a venue for the usually based New Orleans music festival The Ponderosa Stomp to be held on May 8-10. The plant is located in downtown Memphis, and usually offers 45 minute guided tours which include a look at binding, neck fitting, painting, buffing, and tuning of the fine Gibson guitars that they produce there. The Gibson BB King Lucille model and the Chet Atkins Country Gentleman models are produced here. On hand at the event will be Scotty Moore, Memphis based Travis Wammack, Sleepy LaBeef, Lil Buck Sinegal, and James Blood Ulmer, amoung others.

It's great to see Gibson stepping up to the plate for the Hurricane Katrina displaced festival and offering to host 'em. It's small gestures like these that remind me that good companies do exist, and they can make a difference if they act socially responsible. Good on Gibson.
