James Bowman: Gibson instruments are lovingly created

Against Me! guitarist James Bowman has explained his love of Gibson instruments is partly down to the care and attention that goes into making them.

Speaking to the manufacturer's website, he explained that he had recently been on a tour of Gibson's US factory and was amazed to see each part of every electric guitar is handmade.

"I sat and watched a man lovingly fit a neck to a Les Paul, I watched pickups being wound, I saw every aspect of the guitar-making process done by hand," said Bowman.

He added that the process sums up what musicians get when they purchase a Gibson - "a high-quality, handmade guitar, by the people who do it best and have been for over a hundred years".

Bowman added his favourite guitar is the Epiphone '57 Les Paul Standard Gold Top, which makes him feel "unstoppable" when he plays it on stage.

Against Me! have a number of live shows lined up in the US during the rest of February and throughout March, with an Australian tour scheduled for May.

They will begin in Brisbane on May 5th, going on to perform shows in Canberra, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne.
