Les Paul & Les Paul Triumph

RIP Les Paul, 9th June 1915 - 13th August 2009
 
The man credited with creating the electric guitar was, incredibly, still playing at 94 years old!

One of the foremost influences on 20th century sound and responsible for the world’s most famous guitar, the Les Paul model, Les Paul’s prestigious career in music and invention spaned from the 1930s to the present.

Whilst a reputed guitarist (in 2003, he was named the 46th best guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone) Les Paul was also a technical pioneer in the development of the solid-body electric guitar, building the first in 1941, and "made the sound of rock and roll possible" through his many recording innovations include overdubbing, delay effects such as "sound on sound", tape delay, phasing and multi-track recording.
