Has anyone seen any real period photos or pics in books or mags or L. P. album covers from 1958 to 1963 of any artist using a sunburst, PAFequiped,single cutaway Les Paul guitar? The first person I saw ever playing one was Keith Richard circa 1964. How about before 64, no Black bluesmen with a burst, no surf guitarists, no country pickers, no rockabilly cats, no jazz players, not even LES himself. Who bought and used these 1700 or so (now) holy grail of a guitar?
