Acoustic and electric guitar player Bob Dylan has been named as the most revolutionary artist of all time by Gibson.

The manufacturer has been conducting a countdown of the top 50 musical acts who fall into this category throughout the week, finally placing Dylan at the top ahead of The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Elvis Presley.

Gibson contributor Bryan Wawzenek said Dylan was a deserving winner because of his "game-changing approach" to the discipline of songwriting.

He added this was not the only dramatic contribution the star made to the world of music.

"Dylan truly put music on its ear around the time when he went electric and simultaneously trained his artistic vision on the sort of things not typically discussed in pop singles," Mr Wawzenek explained.

The electric guitar player is still touring the world to this day and already has two dates lined up for 2011 in Australia.
