This is essentially a legendary electric guitar that was introduced in 1952 but continues to rock the guitar world, inspiring and influencing musicians all over the world. The person who is responsible for bring such a solid body guitar is known by the same name, Les Paul. He actually collaborated with Ted McCarty to design this instrument. Paul was a famous jazz-pop artist of his day that was known for the development and manufacturing of the entire line of Gibson electric guitars.

This instrument proved to be a natural choice for most guitarists which seemed to lend itself to an easy playing style, no matter what genre was played on its strings from blues to pop, rock, and country.

Formerly, guitar models had been quite simple in design, featuring a solid wooden body with minimal accouterments. And while the sound of the guitar was a signature sound that everyone craved and loved, Gibson took it to a new level when he created the this instrument.

He was tired of playing on instruments that did not look at beautiful as they sounded. He wanted to create a signature design that would be beloved by guitarists everywhere. And he definitely accomplished this with the sleek stylish work of art that was introduced.

In his day, such a development was originally seen as somewhat odd, but in no time it was embraced. Now Gibson is the most well known name in guitars. Nearly everyone knows what a Gibson is.
