The Gibson Dusk Tiger is a much-sought after guitar – but was played by an unlikely musician earlier this week.

Taking time out between matches at the Winter Olympics, American ice hockey star Ryan Suter posed for photos on the rink holding the instrument.

Suter, a Nashville Predator player when not representing his country, is an "avid fan" of the Gibson Dusk Tiger guitar, reports the instrument manufacturer's Lifestyle blog.

As well as being skilled on the guitar, Suter has plenty going for him on the ice – he is the player with the second highest amount of game time in the US team at the Winter Olympics this year.

Gibson is one of the sponsors of the event in Vancouver and has arranged a series of gigs around Canada as a result.

Among the bands and artists who will be performing are Nelly Furtado, Wilco, the Stereophonics and The Fray.
