The most recent addition to the long line is the Appetite Les Paul, which is also available with an aged finish.

In total, Slash has collaborated with Gibson on twelve signature Les Paul guitars...

No other guitar company spans time like Orville's namesake enterprise.

They connect the guitar's humble and populist acoustic beginnings, to the big-band and jazz eras, and all way through to the electrified ear-deafening arms-race that became known as rock n roll.

Even before the world was introduced to these iconic axes, Gibson was rolling right along.He led an expansion of the guitar line with new guitars such as the "Les Paul" guitar introduced in 1952 and designed by Les Paul, a popular musician in the 1950s and also a pioneer in music technology.The Les Paul was offered in Custom, Standard, Special, and Junior models.In the mid-50s, the Thinline series was produced, which included a line of thinner guitars like the Byrdland.The first Byrdlands were slim, custom built, L-5 models for guitarists Billy Byrd and Hank Garland. Other models such as the ES-350T and the ES-225T were introduced as less costly alternatives. Similar in size to the hollow-body Thinlines, the ES-335 family had a solid center, giving the string tone a longer sustain.
