Electric guitar
(Les Paul model)
Gibson, Inc.
Kalamazoo, Michigan
Possibly late 1950's

  This guitar is one of many still owned by Les Paul, the legendary performer who endorsed this important Gibson model and who, at 85, still plays one at a weekly gig in New York. Like every instrument that belongs to the inveterate tinkerer, this guitar shows the effects of decades of experimentation.
