Les Paul's Guitars, Recording Gear up for Auction

Published:
Les Paul Historic guitars from Les Paul's personal collection and recording equipment owned by the pioneering musician will be sold at auction.

Celebrity auctioneer Darren Julien says the sale includes rare guitars, effects pedals, mixing consoles and the grand piano from Paul's home recording studio. Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills will host the sale over three days, including what would have been Paul's 97th birthday: June 9.

A guitarist and inventor, Paul developed one of the first solid-body electric guitars—released commercially in 1952 as the Gibson Les Paul—as well as the technology behind modern multi-track recording. He is recognized in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

The auction benefits the Les Paul Foundation.
