Our good friends at Guitar Lifestyle just posted an excellent review of the new book Million Dollar Les Paul: In Search of the Most Valuable Guitar in the World. As the folks at Guitar Lifestyle point out, the Gibson Les Pauls produced from 1958 to 1960 are considered by many to be the “holy grail” of guitars and currently sell for prices in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The book recounts the history of the Les Paul and contains information on some of its most famous players – from Eric Clapton to Jimmy Page to Keith Richards (a pretty sweet trifecta). The book also covers the key components of the instrument and how they impacted its playability.
How is the book? Read the review at Guitar Lifestyle.
