Me And My Guitar: Ben Sansom, Lower Than Atlantis

This time we speak to Ben Sansom, lead guitarist for fast-rising UK alt rockers Lower Than Atlantis who tells us all about his 1976 Gibson Les Paul Custom, which he bought online and that (if you're feeling really geeky) features some lesser-spotted chrome hardware.

Lower Than Atlantis are playing festivals throughout the summer, before they release their major label debut, Changing Tune, through Island Records on 10 September.

Me And My Guitar is a new video regular in which we talk to well-known guitarists of all genres, shapes and sizes about the instruments that they love and the stories behind them.
