Loitered Lens: Tax the Heat

Humbuckers to warp 11 – Tax the Heat onstage at Koko

The Gibson Les Paul is a (very) solid bodied electric guitar first made available to the public in 1952 by the Gibson Guitar Corporation.

Eponymous guitar player Les Paul had relatively little to do with the development of the instrument, which came to fruition under the design and manufacturing chops of Ted McCarty and John Huis, respectively the company president and factory manager of Gibson Guitars at the time.

None of which looks like it’s of particular to Alex Veale, playing one onstage at Koko with Tax the Heat.

But a little knowledge never hurt.
