Description

(Book). Following the release of The Early Years... , which Vintage Guitar magazine called "carefully crafted ... lavishly illustrated," this full-color book continues the amazing journey of an American icon's recording career and the coveted instruments that bear his name. Beginning with the collectible late '60s models, The Modern Les Paul Legacy moves on to the '70s and '80s special-themed instruments showing all popular artist models, like Jimmy Page, Joe Perry, and Slash, in living color. And the "holy grail" '59 Sunburst and the jaw-dropping Custom Shop creations of the '90s receive their due as achievements that have never, to this day, been surpassed. The book also covers Les Paul's resurgence the comeback Grammy Award-winning album with Chet Atkins, the start of a weekly gig in a New York City jazz club, and the reconnection with the Gibson family. Since Les Paul's death in August 2009, this will be the first book that covers his entire life, including his last performances at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the memorials in New York, and the burial in his hometown in Wisconsin.
