Albums Featuring Gibson Les Paul Guitars

Created in 1952 as a signature model for Les Paul—jazz guitarist, inventor, and recording pioneer—the Gibson Les Paul fell out of favor with much of the guitar-playing public by the end of the decade. But this apparent failure allowed a new generation of musicians to buy the guitars for cheap, and they’d soon take the instrument into sonic territories far from its roots. Hear how the Les Paul sounds in the hands of The Rolling Stones, Duane Allman, Slash, and more in these legendary records.
