br /> In an interview with Gabriel J Hernandez for the Gibson website, the rock star claimed he was drawn to the SG Special early in his career - when he knew little about guitars - because it was the cheapest model he could find and he liked the way it looked.

"But I stuck with the SG because I really loved the way it sounded," he remarked. "There was never any problem with feedback or anything like that. It's a very good working man's guitar."

Krieger featured alongside the likes of Tony Iommi and Angus Young in a list of 15 iconic SG players published by Gibson at the start of this month

Among the famous songs crafted by the guitarist using the instrument are Love Her Madly, Touch Me and Light My Fire.
