Default RIP Les Paul

We lost a legend today. He died today at age 94.

I wonder if Les Paul's will go up in price now?

Doubt it, there are millions of guitars made in that design. It still comes down to company, materials, quality.

I'm sure some of the gibson les pauls that are limited will skyrocket in price. Some were already worth a ton.

I used to live in Waukesha, I bet it's crazy there right now.

RIP.

I saw a great documentary on him a few months ago. He was a really interesting guy. He is the one that came up with the idea to put two heads on a reel-to-reel tape recorder, and start double tracking. He is also credited with the idea of multitracking. Quite a guy.
