Bob Dylan's loyalty to Gibson acoustic guitars has lasted throughout his career, a new article has explained.

The legendary solo artist began his career back in the 1960s playing a Gibson J-50 guitar, which was featured on the cover of his self-titled first album.

Dylan then moved to Gibson Nick Lucas Special before being given a Gibson G-200 guitar as a present by Beatles star George Harrison, reports the music instrument manufacturer's Lifestyle blog.

The instrument featured on the cover art of his 1969 record, Nashville Skyline.

By the 1990s, he had turned to a Gibson J-45, which featured on Time Out of Mind as well as Love and Theft.

"From his famous Gibson Nick Lucas Special to the Gibson J-45 that has logged in countless miles on the Never Ending Tour, Bob Dylan's history with Gibsonguitars goes deep," the article explained.

Earlier this month, Dylan played at the White House in a special event celebrating the work of the civil rights movement in America.
