Gibson.com thought it was high time that the most legendary of acoustic players finally got their due. In tribute to these masters of the guitar, Gibson.com is counting down the Top 50 Acoustic Guitarists of All Time – as voted on by Gibson’s editorial team, writing staff and, most importantly, the readers. Today, they revealed #50-#41 on the list.
This is a great day for fans of Gibson.com, as Gibson rolls out the red carpet for the newest contributing blogger, the legendary guitarist Rik Emmett (who recently ranked #7 on Gibson.com’s Readers Poll for the Greatest Guitarist of All Time.)
Check out the wonderful write-up from Sean Dooley, Editor of Social Media for Gibson Guitar (and self-admitted “MONSTER Rik fan since 1981”) in response to “What Were They Thinking?! (An Angry Reader’s Guide to the Gibson.com Top 50 Guitarists of All Time)”
Congratulations James Poulin and all runners-up. And a big THANK YOU to all who entered. Stay tuned for more Contests and Giveaways in 2010!
