Arlen Roth, one of the most famous guitar teachers in the world, has revealed that it his dream to have a signature Gibsonguitar of his own.

According to the guitarist, who is nicknamed the Master of the Telecaster, Gibsons represent "solid and refined workmanship".

He told the Gibson website that some of his favourite Gibsonguitars are the reissued '57 Goldtop Les Paul, the ES-335 and the Firebird.

"I have enjoyed their tonal spectrum for both lead and rhythm playing, slide, and, of course, I have always loved the fullness and power of their incredible acoustic guitars," he commented.

The American added that is he beginning work on a book about his life, as well as producing a duet guitar album with Nashville-based songwriter Michael Garvin.

Roth, who was named one of the Top 100 Influential Guitarists of the Century by Vintage Guitar magazine, now performs regularly with his daughter Lexie, who has released her own album of material.
