Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols was the ultimate anti-hero of guitar, so much so that he declared it right from the stage by stenciling the ironic declaration “Guitar Hero” on his amplifier’s grille cloth just months after he’d begun learning to play the instrument.

The iconic guitars of Gibson’s Modernist Series of 1958 were so far ahead of their time that they didn’t achieve enough commercial success to remain in the catalog beyond 1960. But once the guitar world had caught up with their style, tone and undeniable swagger later that decade, they became the ultimate badges of rock credibility—and have remained in the Gibson lineup almost steadily ever since.
