Whilst watching Rick Beato with his beautiful pale blue Les Paul I decided to Google this thread title. Got no immediate appropriate links so does anyone know? Was it the LP?
Cheers.

I mean the commonly held belief is that it was the Les Paul. It is entirely possible that someone made something between when fender started the electric ball rolling and when the LP came out but as you said records don't seem to show anything, so it would either be a one off or something from a very small builder that no longer exists and that no one has heard of.

Long story short, pretty sure it's ol' Lester.
