Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
My desire to always reach the source of information about Gibson Art/Historic creations put me on the phone with Edwin several times and ultimately - in person with him many years ago at NAMM.
IMO, this man was working just a bit harder to convince his employer of the viability of all things “Historic” every day as he was to produce what Gibson aficionados like you and me have cherished. To our benefit, he excelled at both.
We are fortunate to have lived through Edwin Wilson’s reign over what was, rather than what was almost. Being really, really good isn’t free.
Sad to hear of his passing.... the only time i heard of him was on the HOC forum.... never an LP guy i was until i got my first Gibson R7 BB.... heard Wilson joined Heritage guitars on their Custom core series... and next what shocked me was HOC then announced his passing.... its definately a guy with the amount of passion and devout on such instruments....
But what exactly happened to him? Such a young age !! RIP !!
