RIP: Les Paul

Guitarist, inventor, and of course designer of the Gibson electric guitar that bears his name, the legendary Les Paul died on Thursday, August 13th, of complications from pneumonia.

As owners and players of his namesake guitar and beneficiaries of
the multi-track recording techniques he invented, we can't help but feel keenly indebted to this musical giant. Thanks for everything, sir.

Les Paul was 94 years old.
