my favorite les paul player ever

Recommended Posts

I can't say that I have an absolute favorite, but at the moment I'd have to go with Leslie West. I think he plays Dean's now, but that tone he got with a Les Paul Jr. back in the day was so awesome.

I'm gonna go way out on the limb and say Alex Lifeson of RUSH.

 

The pictures and sound on All the World's a Stage album convinced me that Les Pauls are the only guitar I want.

 

He played Les Pauls exclusively on their Snakes & Arrows Tour.

 

Can't wait to see what he does this year. Seeing them in August.

 

Geddy Lee even said he should play LP's exclusively. Not in those exact words, but you get the idea...

I picked up the electric guitar because of this dude. Then I fell in love with Les Pauls.

Gary Richrath of REO Speedwagon. One of the most underrated guitarists imho.

He has a bunch of 58's, some 59's, and some 60's.

I have so many lp players I like, but peter green still gets my vote he is so very special.I was very lucky growing up with fleetwood mac.It was so sad what happened to him ,but it was the times that were being lived.We lost so much talent to those times but there music still plays on.I really believe he was the best white blues player,that came out of that era.

Hello guys! There are many great LP players, but I think Randy Rhoads was the one who sqeezed everything possible out of this guitar.
