Les Paul stopped by the H.E.A.R. booth at the 123rd AES Convention in New York City to autograph his 100th Anniversary Gibson Les Paul guitar for H.E.A.R. (Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers) director and founder, Kathy Peck. H.E.A.R. is the grassroots hearing health advocacy nonprofit organization supporting artists, engineers, producers and industry professionals.

"This was a dream come true for us," says Peck. "He is an incredible man who's done such incredible things and created so much of what we use today in music."

Last year, Peck coordinated the fund-raiser for the Mix Foundation's TEC Awards and, most recently, organized the San Francisco DirkFest Memorial concerts at both Slim's and the Great American Music Hall with two sold-out back-to-back tribute shows for the late punk rock concert promoter, Dirk Dirksen.

H.E.A.R.'s booth at AES this year offered free ear impressions for custom-fit ear plugs and personal monitors at the conference along with support from Future Sonics and Mack's Ear Plugs.
