The Les Paul is one of the most iconic guitars in the world. Period. To many of you this is right out of the guitar cliche handbook and it is. Honest. I opened my handbook up and there it was so I just copied and pasted it.
The Les Paul is also one of the most fascinating subjects in the world of guitars and it's intricacies can be found in one of the best websites/forums that I know of. It is called "The Les Paul Forum". I know…duh, right? Seriously, this forum has been around for over 10 years and has contributors and posters that are of the highest regard. Well known professional players, collectors, dealers and historians have placed within it's pages the greatest knowledge base ever assembled of the Les Paul. I have been reading this forum for ten years and the wealth of information I have absorbed about the Les Paul, the Gibson Company and all of the rest of the models produced by them has been invaluable. So go ahead and check out this link. You can get there by clicking on the title of this blog entry "Les-T we forget".
