I can't belive no ones mentioned that today is Les Pauls 91st B-day. Although I don't like the feel of his guitars, I do think they are gorgeous works of art.

Happy Birthday LesPaul!
Hai UG!
Technically (and ironically), Les Paul didn't actually design the Les Paul model, rather it was named after him.

If I'm correct, he DID design The Log, which would still be a step in the right direction for electric guitars.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." JOHN 3:16 NIV
thats right les paul just designed the first solid body which gibson threw out the door then fender came out with the showmaster(tele) and gibson brought les paul back in and designed the lp
Ted McCarty designed the LP
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?
Whatever, it's named after him... so that makes it his guitar because his name is on it.
Hai UG!
