  • The Gibson Les Paul is a solid body electric guitar that was first sold in 1952. The Les Paul was designed by Ted McCarty who later enlisted popular guitarist Les Paul, to endorse the new model. Although Les later claimed to have been intimately involved in the design of the guitar, it is now generally accepted that the guitar was substantively designed by McCarty and his team with Les' contributions being limited to the initial gold finish on the top and the short-term implementation of the ill-fated Les Paul trapeze tailpiece. It is one of the best-known electric guitar types in the world, along with Fender's Telecaster and Stratocaster.
