Aaron visits Gibson Acoustic Plant to discuss a possible signature guitar run based on a reproduction vintage J45 built for him.

Aaron Lewis of Staind visits the Gibson Acoustic Plant
March 19, 2009

PhotobucketToday Aaron Lewis, (lead singer, songwriter, & guitarist of the popular rock group, Staind), paid Gibson Acoustic, here in beautiful Bozeman, MT, a visit. A huge vintage Gibson acoustic fan, Aaron was relieved to finally make it up here to tour the plant and to meet with Master Luthier Ren Ferguson, Robi Johns, and GM Doug Koffinke to discuss a possible signature guitar run based on a reproduction vintage J45 that we had built for him.

I had a chance to give him a personalized tour and to talk with him for a while. An extremely talented acoustic player, Aaron was intensely interested in the construction process of a Gibson acoustic guitar. Thoughout the tour, we discussed a variety of topics, from archery hunting to a solo side project he is working on to his vast array of vintage Gibsons (both acoustic and electric) that he has collected over the years.

Aaron also showed a sincere appreciation for his fans by posing for several photos and signing a number of autographs much to the delight of the plant's employees. It was a pleasure to meet this highly talented, down-to-earth, man, and we at Gibson Acoustic will always have an open door whenever Aaron Lewis wishes to visit us again.

Until then, here are some photos of his visit. Enjoy.
