R.I.P. Les Paul (1915 – 2009)

The legend behind the iconic Gibson Les Paul has just passed away and Tickets There wanted to commemorate his passing by showing a handful of our favourite guitarists that have used his guitar. I never knew a whole pile about Mr. Paul but I’ve loved his guitar since I fist saw a picture of Slash from a live show many, many years ago. In fact, I think the reason I started playing guitar in the first place was so one day I’d be worthy of purchasing and owing a Studio Classic model (that day hasn’t come yet but I did buy a lovely Epiphone LP).

Anyway, R.I.P. Les, you gave rock N roll one of it’s finest assets.
