Les Paul 1915-2009

Les Paul, the jazz guitarist who changed the way the world thought about the guitar, passed away yesterday from complications of pneumonia.

The musical genius created not only the solid body guitar, but also multi-track recording, both of which paved the way for rock and roll to conquer the world. The Gibson Les Paul was, and is, considered the finest guitar made, period. With it, sounds previously unthoughtof became part of popular music.

We have lost a legend and a master. The real Guitar Hero is gone. Les Paul will be missed.
