25 most iconic guitars ever
Gibson Les Paul Standard (1958)
If there’s one guitar that can claim as fine a pedigree as Fender’s Strat, it’s the Les Paul. There was no ergonomic styling here – just a gorgeous solid-body design. As Jimmy Page and Slash will both attest, it’s best played at knee level with the bridge humbucker feeding into a wall of Marshall amps.
Although he’s often associated with his double-necked Gibson SG, Jimmy Page lorded over the Les Paul like few others. Sometimes with a violin bow.
