The Multi-Talented Les Paul

First published as a collector’s edition in 2009, this is the first-ever paperback version, and it recounts how Les Paul toiled away to launch a new era in American popular music. It’s fun to read how Paul created the first solid-body electric guitar by taking a tone arm from his father’s phono- graph and sticking it into his five-dollar guitar. This book is packed with words of insight from this unique, multi-talented contributor to modern music.
