Legends of the Les Paul: Carl Perkins

Legends of the Les Paul: Carl PerkinsIf you’re looking for an example of a Les Paul being wielded at the very birth of rock ’n’ roll, you need look no further than seminal rockabilly artist Carl Perkins. At Sun Records in 1955 and ’56, Perkins used a pair of ’50s Les Paul Goldtops to record his biggest hits, and these solidbodies are responsible for the sound with which we still most associate him.
