Country music star Randy Scruggs has now designed his own Gibson acoustic guitar for the company and stated it was a thrill to be given his own signature model by the famous brand.

"When I opened it [the case] up, it was like the greatest Christmas present you could receive," he stated. "When I actually picked it up and started to play, it had everything that I had hoped for."

Playing a Gibsonguitar has been one constant throughout the career of country singer Scruggs.

The musician, who has performed with the likes of Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, first picked up a guitar at the age of 11, he told the Gibson Lifestyle blog.

As the son of famous banjo player Earl Scruggs, the star had a good start in the music industry – something he has certainly made the most of in a career which has seen him win a Grammy and be named Musician of the Year at the Country Music Awards in the past.

Other artists who have famously used Gibsonguitars include Bob Dylan and Johnny Marr, the star of The Smiths and The Cribs.
