The Gibson Les Paul went on sale for the first time in 1952. It was designed with input and endorsement from its namesake, the guitarist Les Paul. Originally offered with a gold finish (The Goldtop), a second model, the Les Paul Custom was introduced the following year. It was a black guitar with gold-plated hardware and was quickly dubbed the ‘Black Beauty'.

In 1958, the Les Paul saw its first major design change with a new cherry-red sunburst finish model called the Les Paul Standard (Ice tea sunburst featured in this design). In the early years Les Paul’s were considered to be too heavy and old-fashioned, and initially couldn’t find favour amongst guitarists. However, by the mid-1960s there was a resurgence of interest in the guitar when young guitarists like Keith Richards and Eric Clapton were seen to be playing them. In response, the manufacturer reintroduced the Les Paul single-cutaway in 1968, and the guitar has been in production ever since.

Designed exclusively for John7Arts / Rock'n'Roll Redux by multimedia artist David Lloyd, an alumni of Central Saint Martins School Of Art and the Institute Of Contemporary Arts in London.

Employing the Découpe (cut-up) technique in which written text is cut up and rearranged to create a different and perhaps unexpected new narrative, David Lloyd has employed shards of lyrics to give discerning fans an opportunity to engage in 'discover the songs' beneath a foreground featuring an iconic and classic guitar. The Découpe concept can be traced back to at least the Dadaists of the 1920s, but was popularised in the late 1950s and early 1960s by writer William S. Burroughs and later employed by David Bowie, Kurt Cobain and Thom Yorke. Each unique Rock’n’Roll Redux design ©2020 David Lloyd.
