br /> According to the company, the guitar amps played a significant part in the so-called British invasion of the 1960s, as they were used by many acts on a succession of notable records.

Gibson highlighted The Byrds' version of Bob Dylan's Mr Tambourine Man - which features a distinctive electric guitar intro from Roger McGuinn - as one example of this trend.

"In this time period, a variety of Epiphone amps graced the albums of countless artists and bands," it commented.

Meanwhile, McGuinn is set to bring his famous Rickenbacker electric guitar to the West Country, as he is appearing at the Glastonbury Festival this weekend.

The date is part of an extensive international tour, and fans can be sure to hear him playing established Byrds classics such as Eight Miles High and Turn Turn Turn.
