Got a video of him at home on VHS somewhere. First time I saw him play I was like, dang!

Although, to be honest, I can't hear everything cleanly in this, but other videos have been good.

He is DAMN good. Loads of respect for that man..


Btw, anyone know what kind of pickups are in that guitar? I assume they're active, since it looks like there's a battery pack under the bridge.

Dont look like P-90's to me. They're more oval-shaped than rectangular. And whats with the black box at the bottom of the guitar? P-90's wouldnt require that...

classic dog-ear shaped p-90's look closely. The box is either the wireless from the guitar or the mic that happens to be sticking out of his guitar


EDIT: Now that I look a bit closer, it does seem to be a bit more oval-shaped. It might be possible that they're custom

Les Paul had a habit of making his own gear.

Edit: The guitar looks like a modified 'Les Paul Recording' (made from 1971-1980), with the pickups at a different angle to the production model and the black square below the bridge (not sure what it is). The only thing I know about the pick-ups themselves is that they are 'low impedance', which I think means that they are active, which could explain the mysterious black box.

The Les Paul recording was the second attempt by Gibson (the first was the Professional/Personal Les Pauls of 1969, which did not last long at all) to popularise a guitar with Les Paul's complicated and intricate controls.

Sorry about the crappy quality of this picture. I had to resize it to get it small enough to upload. The original is here:

I've never been that impressed personally, I think he's good but I think there are a lot of people who can do that much better.

Same. When it comes to jazz, there really are lots of "better" guitarists.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

It can be said that Les was doing it first though. He 'opened up' jazz music and the guitar in general to a whole new field, and he was so very innovative.

I posted the video mainly because I'd never seen him play like that before, and I doubted a lot of other folks here had.

As in, play that fast?

I wonder if I could get the VHS stuff onto the laptop... I'll give it a shot.

Well, you know, I wouldn't say the first... There's Django, Charlie Christian, and guys like Wes Montgomery a while later that did much more in regards to "opening up" jazz music and guitar imo.

Though "How High The Moon" is a great tune

Very true, but his innovative instrumentals, his creation of a very versatile instrument and his technology set him apart a little in a different way. Maybe he was a little more forward thinking.

But from a guitar playing perspective, I'd never seen him play that fast before! Must have been before the arthritis

depends on what sort of jazz you like too...if you like bop, there are not a lot of better guitarists. but yeah, i think resi mentioned django who was a massive influence on les, so he's not exactly the first. and charlie christian is just better. still a phenom though.
