I'm surprised nobody has started a thread on this.... so I guess that means its my job. Guitar inventor Les Paul died today at the age of 94. Besides inventing the solid body guitar he also pioneered many recording techniques that are now common like overdubs, reverb and other sound effects.

That is sad. :cry: At 94 he lived a long and great life though.
He otta have a wake.

Jimmy Page who still plays a Gibson Les Paul, counts him as his main influence and inspiration for recording techniques in Led Zeppelin.

A very underrated guitarist too, much like Jimmy Page.
