A selection of the best new & used Gibson Les Paul guitars listed for sale this week. The Les Paul is a solid body electric guitar first sold in 1952 by the Gibson Guitar Corporation (*). Witnessing the success of the Fender Esquire and Fender Broadcaster in 1950 – Ted McCarty recruited a professional guitarist to develop an alternative to the Fender Telecaster. This guitarist was Les Paul (full name Lester William Polsfuss). What they produced was an immediate success and has remained unchanged (and often copied) for years.
Keeping within a budget – consider the Epiphone version
It’s hard to find a genuine, clean and authentic Gibson model for less than £1,000. The next best thing is an Epiphone model. The Les Paul is produced under licence to Gibson’s sister company Epiphone. For that reason, we have a range of Epiphone Les Paul available here.
One sound – dozens of classic colours from Ebony to Cherry Sunburst
One of the appeals and instantly recognisable features of these classic guitars is the finish. From the classic EBONY version (all black with a contrasting ivory trim) to the bright SUNBURST series – Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Honeyburst and even a stunning green Anaconda Burst.
