    Yes, I gave mention of it in your birthday tribute thread to him Happy Birthday Les Paul.

    I had considered opening a new thread; but, decided against it when I saw how few responses the b-day thread had yielded.


    Sad to see him go, however, he had a long rich life and gave us wonderful new technologies.

    He was a truly amazing man and hopefully people will get to know of just how much he as a technologist aswell as a musician contributed to our music culture.

    I had owned once a Les Paul guitar in my life. A 1981 Les Paul The Artist. Had Moog active electronics in it. Les Paul was an innovator.
