Journey Through the "The Les Paul Legacy" with Author Robb Lawrence

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Guitarist/historian Robb Lawrence became well acquainted with the Wizard of Waukesha during the early '70s living in Mahwah, New Jersey with the famous inventor/guitarist and teching his West Coast Concerts through the decades. Robb will discuss and show the highlights of Paul's illustrious career and how Gibson created his prestigious signature models covered in this two volume, box set published by Hal Leonard. Hear a richly toned and resonant 1960 Les Paul Standard (made popular by Clapton, Beck and Bloomfield) amplified to see why this Strad of the solid bodies commands six digit figures.
