Gibson advertisement (1973) Yeah I Paid Some Dues

BB King endorsed Gibson products for many years, and featured in numerous catalogs and adverts; always playing an ES-355TD-SV or the BB King Lucille guitar - basically an ES-355 but without f-holes, in order to reduce feedback whilst performing. He can be seen here bending a note on an ES-355TD-SV. More about BB King and Gibson
