Lester William Polsfuss (June 9, 1915 – August 12, 2009) known as Les Paul was an American jazz and country guitarist, songwriter, and inventor. He was a pioneer in the development of the solid-body electric guitar which made the sound of rock and roll possible. He is credited with many recording innovations. Although he was not the first to use the technique, his early experiments with overdubbing, delay effects such as tape delay, phasing effects and multitrack recording were among the first to attract widespread attention.

Gibson Les Paul

The Gibson Les Paul is a solid body electric guitar that was first sold in 1952. The Les Paul was designed by Ted McCarty in collaboration with popular guitarist Les Paul, whom Gibson enlisted to endorse the new model. It is one of the best-known electric guitar types in the world, along with Fender's Telecaster and Stratocaster.

Epiphone Les Paul

The Epiphone Les Paul is a Gibson-authorized copy of the famous Gibson Les Paul and is positioned as a more affordable version. Early versions Epiphone Les Paul had bolted on necks, flat bodies with a stubby horn and multiple pickup configurations more akin to a superstrat style guitar. The Epiphone Les Paul Standard, which more closely resembles a Gibson Les Paul, was introduced in 1989 and featured a narrow open-book Gibson-style headstock.
