The man, among many other things, changed electric guitar forever. And for the better. I proudly own a 1976 Kalamazoo cherry sunburst.

From the link:

Les Paul, 94, a Grammy Award-winning guitar virtuoso and inventor of the solid-body electric guitar who helped bring his instrument to the forefront of jazz and rock-and-roll performance, died Aug. 13 at a hospital in White Plains, N.Y. He had pneumonia.
