Gibson has written a glowing review of the Epiphone Les Paul Standard, 50 years after the electric guitar was created.

The manufacturer said the instrument is considered by some to be the Holy Grail of electric guitars.

This, it stated, is partly because features such as its flatter and wider frets have allowed players to bend notes more dramatically.

Gibson said the impact of this innovation was embraced by "countless" rock and blues guitarists in the 1960s.

"Epiphone's Les Paul Standard has been a favourite guitar for years and years," it commented.

Gibson added that the electric guitar has proved popular with musicians because it has a "magical fat, warm voice".

The review comes in the wake of the death of electric guitar player and designer Les Paul.

This led to tributes from many legends in the music world, including Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys, Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits and former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash.
