Gibson Guitars: An Overview
When it comes to rock 'n' roll instruments, Gibson guitars are an American standard. The Nashville-based company manufactures acoustic and electric axes that are coveted by rock legends as well as guitar geeks who can actually afford one. Perhaps most iconic of all the Gibson Guitars is the Les Paul, first released in 1952, which has been famously played by Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Slash (to name a few). Other Gibson guitars, including the SG, the Flying V and the double-neck EDS-1275 are among the most recognizable instruments in music. Flip through our gallery of some famous Gibson guitars below.
