Les Paul’s guitars, recording gear up for auction – Music News – Wire – TheState.comPosted: March 26, 2012
Some major money is going to be spent at this auction. A 1958 Les Paul can go for close to half a million dollars by itself, having a connection to the man who created it will send the price through the roof. Les Paul was not only a great guitarist but an American inventor who has been inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame. Unfortunately, lots of vintage and highly collectable guitars end up going over seas, never to be seen again. I hope some of his guitars and recording equipment remain here in the states, preferably in the hands of a musician that will actually use the stuff once in a while.
