Overview

(Book). Journey through the career of musical giant, milestone guitarist, and recording innovator Les Paul, and marvel at the world of cutting-edge guitar design! This book, along with its companion book The Modern Era of the Les Paul Legacy 1968-2007 (Fall 2008) emerged out of author Robb Lawrence's years of research, interviews, extensive vintage archives (including original Les Paul/Mary Ford articles, press photos, music and recordings), and gorgeous original photography. It's all here: the factory pictures, the designers, the electronics; the first experimtela "Log" and "Clunker" guitars, stories of the various Goldtops, the humbucking pickup evolution, and over 80 pages dedicated to the heralded '50s "Sunburst" Standard. Exclusive interviews with Les Paul, as well as Michael Bloomfield and Jeff Beck. A beautiful and insightful book on a legendary inventor, musician and his partnership with Gibson to make the world's most-cherished electric guitar.

Robb was one of the first person to write about the magnificient Gibson Les Paul 'Sunburst' back in the early 70's...(RARE BIRD) Robb knows Les Paul and the Les Paul Models like no one else. This book is a must as BOTB is. Thanks so much Robb for sharing this to the world! Gaston G.
