"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

so if you already own a book about one of the most recognisable electric guitars in history (along with the Fender Stratocaster)do not buy this - but on the other hand if you NEED or WANT a book about the Gibson Les Paul i would go as far as saying that this is the best available at the moment.
Highly informative, with superb illustrations and even more poignant now that Les Paul himself passed away earlier this year on August 12, 2009 :(
