    Holy shit that is a bummer. I never really likes les paul guitars though. An industry legend regardless.

    RIP.

    He was 94, lived a long life. I changed my avatar back to me with the Les Paul in his honor.

    RIP

    He did more than create the Les Paul guitar, his invention of multitrack recording totally transformed the recording industry.

    Frank Zappa's modified Les Paul on "Shut up and Play Yer Guitar" is the summit of Everest of the Les Paul tone.
