The first ever hands-on how-to manual devoted to the famous Gibson Les Paul is now updated with the latest models and guitar-tech advice. Along with the Fender Stratocaster, the Gibson Les Paul is without doubt the most iconic electric guitar ever made, beloved and sought after by guitarists everywhere. It's the signature sound for musicians as distinguished and diverse as Jimmy Page, Carl Perkins, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Billy Gibbons, Muddy Waters, and Frank Zappa. Veteran guitarist Paul Balmer's failsafe guidebook shows owners and dreamers the basics of selecting and buying a Les Paul; maintenance and repairs such as tuning, setting intonation, tremolo alignment, fret repairs, bridge and nut adjustments, and electrics troubleshooting; spur-of-the-moment stage-side fixes; basic "performance" enhancements; and more. With tips and techniques specific to each of the numerous Les Paul models, this book is the guitarist's ticket to electrifying success.
