Gibson Les Paul De Bob Marley

Henry Juszkiewicz ist der Retter einer Legende. Seine Produkte waren schon immer die Stars der Stars: Elvis Presley wurde mit ihnen der King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Jimi Hendrix erklärte sie zu seiner Heiligkeit, als er sagte: “Musik ist meine Religion”, und neben vielen anderen großen Künstlern der Musikgeschichte spielten und spielen auch Bob Marley, Keith Richards (Rolling Stones), Paul McCartney (Beatles) und Lenny Kravitz auf einer Gibson-Gitarre.

Doch wäre Henry Juszkiewicz nicht gewesen, ein Ex-Investmentbanker, der seit seiner Jugend gerne Gitarre spielt und, wie er selbst sagt, bei den Pfadfindern seine “Fähigkeit, andere Menschen zu motivieren und anzutreiben”, entdeckte, wäre die Gibson Guitar Corporation in den 80er-Jahren bankrott gewesen.

Gibson Les Paul Junior Bob Marley

 

The goal for the Les Paul Jr. was to have a high-quality guitar that was still affordable. This was achieved by stripping the Les Paul down to the basics: one pickup, one volume knob and tone knob. It was equipped with one P-90 dog ear pickup in the bridge. It was originally released in sunburst, but Gibson also introduced the TV version (a kind of yellow, also known as TV Yellow) for professional musicians, who would be featured playing the guitar on television; the yellow would look white on black and white television, without the glare of an actual white finish.
In the 1960s and 1970s the Les Paul Jr. became very popular because of its simplicity and distinguishable tone when played through a high gain amplifier. The P-90 pickup gave the guitar a distinct crunch that was desired by rock and blues players of the time, including Leslie West of Mountain, Luther Grosvenor (a.k.a. Ariel Bender) of Spooky Tooth and Mott the Hoople, and Johnny Thunders of The New York Dolls and The Heartbreakers. A Les Paul Junior also became John Lennon’s main guitar during his post-Beatles years.

Bob Marley Gibson Les Paul Guitar

The Gibson Les Paul famously played by Bob Marley is to be loaned to the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.

It is to be displayed there as part of a large exhibition commemorating the 30th anniversary of the singer’s passing, reports the Jamaica Observer.

The Bob Marley Museum in Kingston has handed over the electric guitar over on a temporary basis.

Marley used the Les Paul both in the studio and when playing live and it will go on display in LA from May.

Jacqueline Lynch Stewart, general manager at the Bob Marley Museum, said: “Members of staff were anxious about it leaving the museum, but all understand that Bob is not only a Jamaican legend, but a world legend, so he has to be shared with the rest of the world.”

In 2002, Gibson honoured the reggae musician by manufacturing 200 limited Les Paul Specials built to the exact specifications of the guitar he used.

Another star known for his love of the Les Paul is Jeff Beck.

Speaking to the Gibson website earlier this week, he recalled how he was unable to choose whether it or the Fender Stratocaster was his favourite guitar when he was younger.
