Gibson guitar player and bluesman Marcus Bonfanti gave fans a sneak preview of his new album by playing a session in London recently.

The British musician took time out from his current UK tour to play his new single Give Me Your Cash at the Gibson Guitar Showroom.

Bonfanti, who wowed the crowds with a slot at the Glastonbury festival last month, performed the song on a Gibson Dobro Resonator during the appearance.

Discussing the reaction to his music, the guitarist said: "Someone called me the lovechild of Tom Waits and Van Morrison once. I quite like that one."

He added that there is "something British" about his brand of music, which is also influenced by bluegrass, jazz and heavy rock.

Bonfanti is not the only famous musician known to favour Gibson guitars - Def Leppard axeman Phil Collen owns "hundreds" of the manufacturer's instruments.

He recently revealed he still owns the Gibson SG 200 which he was given as a 16th birthday present.
