There's lots of Les Pauls....

If you're talking about Gibsons, it's probably because they're good sounding/looking/playable guitars.

Les Paul is adored for its sweet sustain, good looks, and beefy tones. Its used by the Paige, Slash, so of course people adore it.

It just is. Don't ask me, I'm a Fender guy. I think it has to do with it looks, the sustain, the tone, and probably alot of peoples idols play a LP, so of course they want it.

Because the les paul has a single cutaway, and it is heavier than you are.

The tone is very full, beefy, jerky beef!
It is amazingly expensive
Nice wood
ugly single cutaway (i like double cutaways more)
