GALLERY: Hard Rock Collection's Iconic Axes, Part 1

Axes owned by Paul Kossof, Eric Clapton, Andy Summers, Marc Bolan and more.

Paul Kossoffуs 1957 Gibson Les Paul TV Jr
"This humble axe is one of the absolute greatest rock уnу roll guitars in the Hard Rock collection. Itуs a 1957 Gibson Les Paul TV Jr that belonged to Paul Kossoff of Free. In fact, this was Paulуs first Gibson. Thereуs some kind of voodoo going on with this guitarяlike the stars were perfectly aligned on the day it was built. Itуs quite possibly the best-sounding guitar we have. This simple mahogany plank with its single P-90 pickup sounds absolutely glorious no matter what you plug it into. "
