Ahhh ... the tasty tone of the Les Paul Standard. I suppose if I were stuck on a deserted island, this would be the one guitar I'd need to have with me. Oh, and I'd need my Fender Blues Deluxe amp. And a source of electricity.
Legions of great players have slung a Les Paul over their shoulders. Jimmy Page. Mike Bloomfield. Billy Gibbons. Peter Green. Dickey Betts. Robert Fripp. And of course Les Paul himself. I like to think I channel the masters whenever I plug mine in. All I know for sure is that this guitar is heavenly, a machine capable of sounds so seductive that I fall more severely under its spell every time I pick it up, or even look at it.
