Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Les Paul guitar has been the instrument of choice for many of the world's top rock guitarists since its introduction in 1952. This book, which follows the authors' The Fender Book (Miller Freeman, 1992) as the second in a guitar profile series, documents the instrument's history and development. The guitars are discussed within the context of both popular music and the international guitar market. All models are covered, and the appendix includes a comprehensive reference section listing information needed to identify and date each model. High-quality photos highlight differences in model specifications and showcase many beautiful and collectible pieces. Designed to appeal to musicians, guitar collectors, and rock fans alike, this volume will prove useful in most libraries. --Eric C. Shoaf, Brown Univ. Lib., Providence
John Shreffler
Much of the history of rock 'n' roll focuses on the personalities of a steady progression of guitarists, who, in turn, often focus on the personalities of their guitars. Many of those guitars, including those used by stars of the caliber of Eric Clapton, were the Gibson Company's electric models named after Les Paul, the guitar ace of the 1940s and 1950s, and have become collector's items. This complete history of the Les Pauls explains the company's collaboration with Paul in 1952 to produce the instruments and then covers in detail their technical and commercial history down to the present day. Not only is the book tricked out with a lavish profusion of color illustrations (mostly portraits of the instruments), but it also presents quite a variety of historical facts in the main text and concludes with appendixes full of model identification data and extensive chronologies. Rock fans who revere the hardware as much as the players may well enjoy Bacon and Day's effort, and guitar collectors and fanciers will find it a valuable reference.
