Gibson guitars to feature in museum exhibition

Gibson guitars are to feature in a special exhibition.
Great deals on musical instruments

Gibson

guitars are to feature in a new exhibition at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in the US.

The company is providing replica versions of guitars from the last couple of hundred of years, while original models used by the likes of Garth Brooks and Vince Gill will also be on display.

As well as the replicas, Gibson is also running a section of the show that details the individual components that go into making a guitar.

Don Cusic, guest curator and music business professor at the Belmont University in Nashville, told the Oklahoma Gazette: "If you look at the history of country music or Western music or rock and roll, it all centres on guitars.

"More people play the guitar than any other instrument."

Last month, prog rock star Peter Banks, who played in Yes and Flash, stated that he refuses to use any other guitar than a Gibson ES-335.
