The legendary Les Paul...

Postby Metroid » Thu Aug 13, 2009 3:02 pm

...has died today at the age 94. If you've ever been a musician or been around musicians you know the impact Les had on the guitar world and the music world in general.

RIP Les Paul. ;-D

Duh, I didn't notice the 'legendary' in the title, just saw Les Paul and knew what it was. No need having it in my post... :-B

I played a Les Paul when I was younger. Everyone wanted to play the guitar Jimmy played.

RIP Les Paul.

Jimmy who?

Since he spelled it Jimmy I'm guessing Jimmy Page...but he may have, most likely, meant Jimi Hendrix.

No nevermind. Jimmy Page played a les paul. hendrix played a start. I'm just so use to people saying Jimi.

So one of them is correct.

I am a bigger fan of Jimi but I want a Les Paul super bad!

Jimi mostly played Fender Strats but he did own and play a black Les Paul, as well as other guitar models. He is most identified with the Stratocasters though since that's what he played a majority of the time.

So if you wanna play the guitar Jimmy played, it's a Les Paul.

If you wanna play the guitar jimi played, it's a Stratocaster.
