In honor of Les Paul

Les Paul, inventor of the solid-body electric guitar, just passed away at the age of 94. I don't play guitar myself, but I sure do like rock music, and there's no doubt it wouldn't be the same kind of music without electric guitars.

I've always loved this commercial Les Paul was in, so I thought I'd share it.

I remembered that commercial as soon as it started playing! Amazing how just a second or two, and it all came right back.

Thanks for finding that memory! :)

He was THE MAN to guitarists, the one who basically invented the instrument in its modern incarnation.
