Gibson has hailed the popularity of its acoustic guitars with many leading country musicians.

According to the guitar manufacturer, acts such as Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley and Lady Antebellum have been seen playing the instruments recently.

Gibson also noted that its acoustic guitars have been used on some Keith Urban records, as well as tracks by Sugarland and Darius Rucker.

This, it said, shows that Gibson acoustic guitars can help to deliver the "most authentic" country sound.

"You're used to seeing iconic rock guitarists playing Gibson electrics, but as top country acts invade the popular music charts, they're bringing with them the sound of Gibson acoustic," the company remarked.

Brad Paisley has meanwhile hailed the Gibson J-45 acoustic guitar as a world-class instrument.

He said the guitar has a sense of aggression and plenty of character.

Paisley added that he tends to associate Gibson acoustic guitars with Beatles legend John Lennon.

This comes after rising star Catherine Britt revealed that she loves her Gibson acoustic guitars, as they have a great sound and feel.
