guitars have received the thumbs-up from Alice in Chains frontman William DuVall.

Speaking to Guitar Edge, DuVall stated that he owns several different versions of the classic instrument, but mainly uses a 1960 VOS Sunburst when playing gigs.

"Before the Les Paul, I went through a long phase of using guitars that weren't made of wood … Now I'm using a Les Paul, one great Les Paul. They are making them right," he stated.

Fellow Alice in Chains bandmate Jerry Cantrell revealed in the same interview that he has his own set of the iconic guitars, reports Gibson.

He said his owns three Les Paul Customs in different colours – white, black and wine red.

Last September, Alice in Chains released their latest album, Black Gives Way to Blue, which went in at number five on the US Billboard chart.
