Electric guitars 'have a personality', says Gibson

The type of guitar chosen by musicians can be a reflection of their wider personality, experts have suggested.

According to electric guitar manufacturer Gibson, Les Paul's may be "gorgeous", but they are also far from lightweight.

This, it said, shows that players are not interested in favouring fashion over function, as well as their reluctance to go for and overly flashy style and gimmicks.

"Your infinite sustain means that you'll outlast all those newfound amp-modelling axes by a few lifetimes," the company continued.

Meanwhile, Gibson stated that those who play SGs tend to have a healthy sense of history.

However, it added that SG players are often less traditional than Les Paul fans, often using different pick-up configurations to express themselves.

Many of rock's most successful and popular musicians have favoured Gibson electric guitars over the years, with artists such as Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and George Harrison also using them on stage and on record.
