This photographic exhibition is a world first and is designed to celebrate the power and influence both Gibson Guitar and Epiphone has had in shaping music history with the worldâ€™s greatest guitarists as caught on camera through the ages. The exhibition will exhibit 60 rare and vintage images of international artists such as Keith Richards, B.B King, Jeff Beck, Les Paul, Jimmy Page, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Chuck Berry, Neil Young, The Edge, Pete Townshend, Slash, Bruce Springsteen, Lenny Kravitz and Noel Gallagher to name a few.
Gibson Guitar has over a hundred years as one of the worldâ€™s brand leaders and the company say that this exhibition celebrates the power and influence the guitar has had in music recording and performing by leading musicians since the electric guitars creation in the 1950â€™s.
