Great deals on musical instruments
You know you've made it when you start getting invites to big political events. Henry E Juszkiewicz, chief executive officer of [Gibson Guitar](http://www.gear4music.com/Electric_Guitars/Gibson_Electric.html), has been invited by US congresswoman Marsha Blackburn for the president's speech to Congress on jobs this evening (September 9th). Her press secretary said this was a warm gesture of support to Juszkiewicz, whom she described as a long time friend and constituent. Ms Blackburn, herself a bit of a musician – she plays the ukulele - said: "Gibson Guitar is at the heart of this jobs debate, and is an example of exactly why president Obama has it wrong when it comes to getting our economy back on track. "Maybe if the president spent more time finding real solutions to empowering small-business owners and less time hindering businesses like [Gibson](http://www.gear4music.com/Gibson.html), we'd see more new jobs being created." A rare collection of [music instruments](http://www.gear4music.com) will go under the hammer on September 17th, including a [Gibson Les Paul](http://www.gear4music.com/search/gibson%20les%20paul/filters=d:,m:175,t:8,) gold-top [electric guitar](http://www.gear4music.com/Guitars.html), which is all the more amazing because it has been signed by the legend himself.
