Les Paul Biography
Les Paul not only established himself as a rock-n-roll icon, but assured his immortality with the development of the solidbody electric guitar. A popular guitar player of the 1940’s, Paul focused his talents on both music performance and electronic design. The 1948 hit, “Brazil” established Paul’s flair for innovation by featuring six self-played guitar parts. This demonstration earned him a reputation as “father of multi-track recording” and sold Gibson on the idea of the solidbody guitar. The instrument transformed the original wood plank design of a guitar into a sleek and elegant piece of art. Today Gibson makes eight different versions of the solidbody, ranging from the Les Paul Standard to the Les Paul Melody Maker. The legend himself performs weekly at the Iridium Jazz Club on Broadway
