When I think of guitars, the first brand that comes to mind is Gibson. My eldest daughter has expressed an interest in learning the guitar. Of course we will want to start her on an acoustic, but I know that my husband has been impressed by the gibson les paul standard. He enjoys listening to it especially when it is played by Mark Knopfler. He loves the sound of Gibson Les Paul, its rich sound and especially the skill with which Mark Knopfler plays it. When I heard “Brothers in Arms” played on the Les Paul, I could really appreciate the sound. It is a wonderful guitar.
