The original Les Paul was
produced in 1952, but the custom was not introduced until 1954. The idea behind

audience (and the player, of course), and a better playing experience for the
guitarist. Success. Les Paul wanted a classier looking guitar that the gold, so
he suggested black as it made the guitar look like it were wearing a tuxedo.
Many nicknames were given to the guitar like â??Black Beautyâ? and â??Fretless
Wonder.â? It featured a Gibson P-90 pickup in the bridge position, and a newly
designed Seth Lover alnico V pickup in the neck. Seth Lover, as you may know,
was the creator of the humbucker pickup. The split diamond headstock inlay
signified the guitars importance and high quality. Obviously, that same
importance and high quality is still loved today for every style of music
