Product description

Review

"One of rock 'n' roll's last renaissance men, Les Paul applied his electronics expertise to the instrument using magnetic pickups to give it a distinct tonal quality prized by players for over 50 years. The Gibson Les Paul is the benchmark by which all other instruments are measured..." --New Music Weekly, 18 August 2009

"On August 13, 2009 the music world lost a true innovator with the passing of Les Paul at the age of 94. Up until his final days, Les still played his standing Monday night gig at New York's Iridium Jazz Club. Few if any guitars have as rich and illustrious a reputation as a Gibson Les Paul."
--Harmony Central, 18 August 2009
