“The Log” is the famous prototype constructed by Les Paul from a 4” by 4” fence post and an Epi archtop. Effectively the first solid body guitar, and the main reason why Les was inducted into The National Inventors Hall of Fame in Akron, Ohio. Here is Les playing, but I cannot see whether he is actually playing The Log or whether it is an un-amputated Epi.
