Les Paul 100th Birthday


Lester William Polsfuss aka Les Paul (9/6/1915-12/8/2009), jika beliau masih hidup, hari ini merupakan hari lahir beliau yang ke-100.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Walaupun jasa beliau dalam dunia gitar elektrik memang tidak dapat dinafikan (sila Google/Wiki), tapi serius, aku tak pernah dengar nama beliau sehinggalah aku mula terjerumus dalam hobi kegitaran pada tahun 2009, beberapa bulan sebelum beliau meninggal dunia.

Kalau nak cerita pasal Les Paul (the man) aku tak tau, tapi kalau cerita pasal Les Paul (the guitar) mungkin aku boleh karang beberapa perenggan...


Sebagai seorang peminat, penghobi dan juga pemain gitar elektrik (enthusiast, hobbyist, guitarist), sudah pasti aku juga memiliki gitar Les Paul walaupun hanya sebuah Epiphone (tak mampu ber-Gibson) iaitu Les Paul 1957 Goldtop (aka Goldie).

Imej cilok blog KDHR.
Pengaruh gitaris idola memang tak dapat dinafikan dalam faktor pemilihan gitar. Dalam kes di atas tadi pastinya dipengaruihi oleh Gibson Les Paul 1970s Deluxe Goldtop kepunyaan Adrian Smith yang selalu digunakan semasa konsert Iron Maiden. Aku juga telah memasang pikap DiMarzio Super Distortion disebabkan faktor yang sama.


Les Paul bukanlah gitar yang selesa digalas, ia berat dengan kayu mahogany padu, tak berapa ergonomik seperti Stratocaster. Kalau tak biasa galas gitar yang berat, setengah jam dah rasa sakit bahu. Tapi, ada satu perasaan puas hati bila menggenggam neck yang tebal dan mula strum open E chord pada crunch/dirty channel amp Marshall (atau modelling).

My singlecuts: Eclipse and Les Paul.
Sekarang aku lebih menggunakan ESP LTD EC-256 (aka Dark Moon) berbanding gitar lain (yang direhatkan). Walaupun ia sebuah Eclipse yang lebih nipis, ringan dan sedikit ergonomik, tetapi karekteristik asas Les Paul masih ada.

Err... Apa aku merepek pagi-pagi ni?

Ada apa: Tak lupa SX PEG2 dan Ibanez GARTB20. yang pernah dimiliki.
