Man! The inventor of the les paul guitar has passed on.
The man who single-handedly changed the face of electric guitar and rock and roll music by producing a solid-body electric guitar, the Les Paul. Used by musicians all over the world and made famous by *ahem* Slash, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Billy Gibbons and the likes.
Slash (former Guns n Roses)
Sir Jimmy Page
I’ve always wanted to own a big fat Les Paul so the first guitar i ever owned was an Aria Pro Les Paul Copy. This is the closest resemblance!
Bought from Luthermusic in 1999 just when my parents lost everything. Those were some crazy times! Inspired by some long-haired guitarist bending wild notes on a certain november rain solo.
