Happy 100th Birthday Les Paul!
Last month, Epiphone kicked off its celebration of Les Paul's 100th birthday by offering fans 15 percent off select Les Pauls. Now Epiphone wants to hear from fans! Did any fans buy an Epiphone Les Paul last month? Do any players have a favorite Epiphone Les Paul in their collection? If so, consumers can visit Epiphone.com in July and upload a photo for a chance to win a Ltd. Ed. 75th Anniversary Inspired by "1939" Century Amp. In order to enter the giveaway, the "selfie" uploaded must feature an Epiphone Les Paul.
Les Paul, the Wizard of Waukesha, was a lifelong fan and friend of the Epiphone and Gibson family. Les' friendship with Epiphone began in 1940 when Epiphone's founder, Epi Stathopoulo, invited Les to use the Epiphone factory in Manhattan to build his dream guitar that could "sustain for days." At the factory, Les created one of the world's first solidbody electric guitars, nicknamed "The Log," – the first in a long series of customized instruments that eventually led to the legendary Les Paul solidbody guitar. Until the end of his life, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone luthiers reviewing new product ideas. Today, Les still inspires every Les Paul we make.
