Rolling Stones legend Keith Richards continues to use Gibson ES-335 guitars.

According to an article on the Gibson website, Richards has been employing the manufacturer's musical instruments throughout his career, playing Les Paul Standards, Customs and Juniors along the way.

"For the Exile On Main Street sessions, however, Richards' favourite Gibson was a sunburst ES-335 he acquired in 1969 and used on the road extensively," it was explained.

The article pointed out that Richards continues to take several ES-335 guitars with him when the Rolling Stones are on tour, as well as using a white Gibson ES-345 guitar on stage.

Last month, Bruce Springsteen's long-time collaborator Steven Van Zandt told Guitar World that he considers Richards to be the finest player of the musical instrument the world has ever seen.

Van Zandt said his influence was particularly apparent in the 1960s, when Richards helped to "reinvent the guitar" with his style of playing.
