This full-color book continues the amazing journey of musical giant, milestone guitarist and recording inventor Les Paul and the instruments that bear his name. Begins with the collectible late '60s models, moves on to the '70s and '80s special-themed instruments, the Historic reissues, and the jaw-dropping Gibson Custom Shop creations. Also covers Les Paul's resurgence--the comeback Grammy winning albums, the legendary weekly gig in a New York jazz club, and the reconnection with the Gibson organization. Since Les Paul's death in August 2009, this will be the first book (along with "Early Years 1915-1963" 49-330972) that covers his entire life, including his last performances at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the memorials in New York, and the burial in his hometown in Wisconsin. Features previously unpublished material and over 400 color photos. Hardcover. 361 pp.
