Gibson also designed and briefly produced the Les Paul amplifier specifically for use with this guitar (and a few other low-impedance guitars/basses Gibson made at the time). The amp has both a low and a high impedance input. Here is the one I own:I've heard that you can switch between hi and lo impedance pick-ups, using the hi-impedance for playing with an amp. Otherwise it seems that the entire guitar is designed to plug into a multi-track tape recorder without clipping its pre-amps. Shame, its a funky and interesting thing. I still kind of want one just try in the studio.
Les played one because:Do you think he liked it so much because he was a tinkerer and it was the culmination of all his knob turning addictions or because it had legitimate applications? aha gah, because i dunno.
