In celebration of Gibson's 75th Anniversary, we are establishing a GIBSON HALL OF FAME... a permanent record of those players who have most influenced guitar music through their artistry. The artists for this award will be selected from among late great Gibson devotees, acoustic players, and the artists appearing in this catalog.
This page shows a number of artists with Gibson instruments: Albert King, Ralphe Armstrong, Joe Pass, Dickey Betts, Michael Bloomfield, BB King, Johnny Smith, George and Louis Johnson, Pat Martino, Tony Mottola, John McLaughlin, Lindsey Buckingham, Elvin Bishop, Jerry Reed, Peter Frampton, Billy Gibbons, John Entwistle and Peter Cetera
