Sadly, guitarist extraordinaire and creator of arguably the greatest guitar ever (mass) produced, Les Paul, died today at age 94.

If you can, watch some videos of him playing.  He was an amazing guitarist.  More than his play, he’s probably known for his pioneering work on the electric guitar.  Les Paul model Gibson and Epiphone guitars — to say nothing of all the knock offs — have been played by some of the greatest guitarists in music history.

Les will be missed.  We were lucky to have him for as long as we have.
