Gibson ES-335 'helped Bernard Butler produce dazzling guitar work'

Bernard Butler's brilliant guitar playing in Suede makes him ones of the most influential glam rock musicians, a music writer has said.
Great deals on musical instruments

The Gibson ES-335 guitar was highly successful in helping Bernard Butler make great music with indie band Suede.

This is the view of music journalist Russell Hall, who has listed Butler among the top ten glam rock guitar greats.

Writing on the Gibson website, Hall put Butler among the likes of Brian May of Queen and T.Rex's Marc Bolan.

"Employing a 1960 ES-355 as his main instrument, the London-based Butler falls squarely in a British six-string lineage that also includes Mick Ronson and Jeff Beck," the article said.

Hall added that Suede songs such as Animal Nitrate and Metal Mickey match up to the best work of Bolan and David Bowie.

Last month, Butler was praised by solo artist Kate Nash for his guidance in producing her new album.

She said he had introduced her to many of the girl groups that have had a major influence on the sound of the record.
