Product Details

Hal Leonard The Early Years of the Les Paul Legacy, 1915-1963

This book, along with its companion book The Modern Era of the Les Paul Legacy 1968-2007 (Fall 2008) emerged out of author Robb Lawrence's years of research, interviews, extensive vintage archives (including original Les Paul/Mary Ford articles, press photos, music and recordings), and gorgeous original photography.

It's all here: the factory pictures, the designers, the electronics; the first experimental "Log" and "Clunker" guitars, stories of the various Goldtops, the humbucking pickup evolution, and over 80 pages dedicated to the heralded '50s "Sunburst" Standard.
It includes exclusive interviews with Les Paul, as well as Michael Bloomfield and Jeff Beck. This is a beautiful and insightful book on a legendary inventor and musician and his partnership with Gibson to make the world's most-cherished electric guitar.
