Award-winning musician Joe Bonamassa has explained that his audience likes to see him use a range of different Gibsonguitars during his live performances.

Bonamassa, who has been named Best Blues Guitarist by Guitar Player magazine for the past three years in a row, told the Gibson website that he has taken plenty of instruments out on his current tour.

This includes a signature Les Paul, a Flying V, a 1973 Gibson 335 and a Firebird.

"It's part of the spectacle to go through eight or nine guitars," he said.

"People like to see that and I like to give the people what they want."

Bonamassa has just released his tenth studio album, Black Rock, which contains covers of songs from the likes of Leonard Cohen and Jeff Beck.

Another musician to recently praise Gibson instruments is former Kiss star Ace Frehley.

He told Premier Guitar that his instrument of choice is the Gibson Les Paul, both in the studio and when playing live.
