Oct 21, 2009 1:35 PM

Author Tony Bacon has updated The Les Paul Guitar Book, which features 16 more pages and 45 new pictures. This re-titled update of 50 Years of the Gibson Les Paul (2002) tells the story of one of the greatest musical instruments of the 20th century, Les Paul.

Since Gibson's Les Paul solid-body electric guitar first appeared in the early 1950s, it has always been easier to list the famous guitarists who have not used one at some point or another in their careers. This improved edition of the book features a complete history of the guitar and its players, from the original Goldtop through the Fretless Wonder and the revered 1958-'60 “Burst,” and on to the reissues of today.

Richly illustrated with 250 archive and performance shots, ephemera and specially commissioned studio photos, The Les Paul Guitar Book is a complete guide to Gibson's best-known guitar.

Price: $24.99.
