School of Rock – a Philadelphia-born, now-international school for music education – has partnered with Gibson for a limited-edition Les Paul Special electric guitar.

Available exclusively to School of Rock students, the guitar – of which only 100 have been made – boasts a solid mahogany body and neck with a glossy black nitrocellulose finish and gold hardware – both unique features on a Les Paul Special – as well as a cream-bound rosewood fingerboard and wraparound stoptail bridge chosen for “the best intonation possible”.
