Legendary musician Lou Reed has been a frequent user of various Gibsonguitars throughout his career.

An article by the musical instrument manufacturer's website has looked into the former Velvet Underground's "arsenal of guitars" from down the years and found Reed has a lot of history with Gibsons.

It was stated that his instruments have included two different versions of the Gibson ES-335, as well as an Epiphone Riviera, a GibsonSG Standard and a Les Paul Junior.

Reed has also played a vintage Gibson acoustic and an Epiphone Professional during his time, the article explained.

It added that the musician has a unique way of "pulling some of the most distinctive sounds ever put to tape out of his guitar".

Last month, Gibson's poll of the top 50 guitar players of all time put Lou Reed at number 38.

Jimi Hendrix was named as the eventual winner in the rundown.
